As of this moment, I am putting Lying is the Most Fun a Girl Can Have on HIATUS.
There are several reasons for why I am doing this.
The first reason is that I have not posted a new chapter since June 7, 2009. It has been almost four months. I feel terrible for making you wait more than two weeks, so four months is just completely ridiculous. You DO NOT deserve that kind of tardiness.
The second reason is in all honesty…my lack of interest. The story is only six chapters in and it has barely even started. There are SO many things I had planned in the future of this story—so many minor and major plot developments that would take my undivided attention to write.
This story was something I started because I wanted to right something fun and a little bit lighter than the angst I've grown accustomed to. You may have noticed that the last chapter or so was a bit darker than usual and this is because apparently I have issues writing lighter stuff. It is also because I started writing Sweet Relief, and some of the angst of that story overflowed into my other writing.
I would like to apologize to the 60+ people who have added this story to their favorites, the 90+ people that have this story on alert and anyone else that has happened upon this story.
I would also like to apologize for this chapter fake-out. I know how it feels to get an alert for a new chapter of a story just to find a freaking author's note. I hate when that happens. If there was another way for me to notify everyone reading this story that it is going on hiatus, I would have done that. Unfortunately, there wasn't.
Now if you have not completely lost faith in me at this point, I would be eternally grateful if you would give one of my other stories a chance. Slaves to Our Nature is something I'm just writing for fun in my spare spare time, but I have been updating Sweet Relief quite consistently. In fact, since I started posting it, the story hasn't gone for more than 15 days without an update. I'd say that's pretty good…
It was also nominated for the Indie Twific Awards, so I guess that means it isn't a terrible story…
Anyway, I have many other ideas in the works. Perhaps I will come back to LITMF one day, but as it stands, I'd like to give my other ideas a chance.
