AN: Just a quick update for everyone about my situation.
I've noticed lately that I have been having a rough time coming back with this story with a bright mind. But as you can tell by the writing and the oddity of the characters behavior that I have been struggling a lot. I really, really wish I didn't abandon it for six months because I was at the peak of D&R, but my schooling and life really got the best of me. I feel like I've lost my way, and after these last couple chapters and all the negative feedback I got, including just some pointers given by some, it really has gotten me thinking about how this story has randomly changed. I agree with some that the written relationship between Daryl and Harli has been kinda wonky, it's like I don't even know my own character anymore.
Also, I don't want anyone thinking I'm thirsty for reviews, but I've also noticed a decline since chapter 22 and most of my regulars have been MIA. I don't know if it's because people stopped reading because of my "poor" choices, just haven't been keeping up, or just don't feel like it. Reviews were the one thing that I really looked forward to because I liked seeing all the happy reactions to my writing and it really kept my train rolling. I write this for your guys' enjoyment and at this point I really just feel like I'm dragging my feet in the mud. (Not trying to guilt trip because it's not a huge deal, just wanted everyone to know how I'm feeling)
Your voices really don't go unheard, and when someone points something out about the story, negative or positive, I really evaluate it. I'm going to reread this whole story from chapter 1 and try to get my muse back. Even though Harli is my OC, I feel like I've lost my way with her character and want to try and get her back. I want to make this story awesome till the very end, so therefore, these past couple chapters will be reevaluated. I will make mostly minor changes, and stick with some decisions I like, but I'm going to do some stuff that will hopefully get me back on track.
Thanks to everyone who has stuck with me thus far, and I hope you guys will stay with me to the very end. I hope you all understand my situation; I want to do what I can to make you happy.
