A Short Note From the Author
Hello people, long time no see, I know. Just decided to put this up to assure you I'm not dead and do intend on continuing the series as well as to get a few things off my chest. I figure since you're my readers and have decided to stick around I should at least be upfront and honest with you guys.
Alright first and most obvious is why haven't I been updating? Good question little Johnny, here's a cookie. Now, this is the second semester of the school year and of course, I'm dragged down by academic related things as well as extracurricular activities. Of course, I admittedly still do have the free time to update this story every once in a while, but here's the thing. I'm just going through a temporary loss in motivation. Now, I'm not angry at anyone, but please don't bug me about it with annoying messages (and no, I'm not referring to the fans who politely asked and were kind in conversation). This is a story I enjoy and one of the best parts is reading your reviews every time I finish a chapter. It's really enjoyable to spend hard time working on something and receiving praise and even suggestions and how to make things better. It really just makes the whole experience that much greater.
As much as I like it, this is just another extra activity for me. It's something I do for my own enjoyment, your enjoyment, and as a form of expression in a sense. Oda may be able to update weekly, but that's his career and this is just something I do for fun. If I'm really not feeling it then I won't do it. "But Crazyman, what about the readers?" Well, as much as I love you guys, that's just how it is. Although each chapter is only a few minutes of reading for you guys, it's actually hours and hours of hard work for the authors. Planning, typing, dialogue, editing, etc.
I don't know, maybe I'm just more stressed than usual around this part of the year and I'm being overdramatic, but I figured I may as well put this out and not leave you guys in the dark. I don't really like having an entire chapter set up just for an author's note, so I'll probably remove this once I do update again.
Now, let's hear some good news, like dates you can expect updates. School isn't out for me until June 2nd, but even after that in the following weeks I have my SAT and ACT tests. To put it simply, expect it sometime in June, and when I return I'll definitely return big with updates in large chunks. Thanks for reading, and until then, seeya later guys
