Okay guys, I'm back.

I've had a look at some of the reviews and responses to my message yesterday, and rather than PMing the person individually, I figured that I'd give you all a message here.

I am not putting this up for adoption.

I know some of you might be a bit upset about this, but this story is mine. I don't mean that in an aggressive manner, but in a protective way. I poured so much into this, I bought a sketch book purely so I could work, draw building designs, collect my thoughts, etc. I have a whole plot written down for this, but no time to write it. I just don't want to give my story away, it's been a sort of journal. Would you want to give your journal to someone else that you don't even know?

I will not be deleting my account or the story

You guys have convinced me to keep everything up here. I can't say when I'll update, but maybe one day there'll be a new chapter. You guys can re-read what I have done, and, I don't know, try and imagine what comes next.

THIS IS MY DECISION

I know you're upset (possibly), but this is my choice. I'm taking more difficult classes and I can't find the time to write. Hell, I barely even get time to read! I am not giving up. I REPEAT I AM NOT GIVING UP. If I ever get time to write again, sure I'll update.

THANK YOUS

Thank you to all of you, for your support and lovely reviews. I'm sorry to have upset some of you, I really am. But I hope you can understand where I'm coming from. To those who said such beautiful things, thank you. You deserve to find money on the ground because your words filled me with such hope and happiness when there wasn't much else to keep me going. Thank you to everyone who told me I was a good author, hearing that filled me up with such joy! To everyone I've met and talked to here, thank you for being so kind and wonderful.

To all of you, I'm not really gone for good. I'll always be here. I'll answer any messages, but I probably won't reply to all of your reviews.

Love, Jem.
