Thanks to everyone who took the time to read "Beloved". As I contemplate the possibility of writing future stories in the Moribito universe, I'd like to ask for some help. I'd love some feedback about what worked for you and what didn't in this story. In particular, issues such as characterization and pacing come to mind. Did the story and characters feel true to the source material? I'd also love to hear what readers thought about the conclusion - was it satisfying? Did it suit the story? All of this would be invaluable to me as I try and improve as a writer, specifically in this fandom.
I appreciate any time you might have to help. PM's, email, public reviews, anything is fine - obviously if you're going to trash the story I'd rather see that in a PM but whatever works for you is fine! Again, thanks for reading the story and for all the feedback you've already provided.
