Well, chapter 16 of "Shining Cloud" is up on schedule, in which we catch up on Hindel and his friends for the first time since Part 1. Sadly, not only have my reviewers not caught up as I had hoped, I haven't gotten a single review since I posted my previous chapter. It also hasn't been a great month for me as writing goes; my work hours the past three weeks have been nearly double. I still have a two chapter lead, but I've reached the point where I need to work on the finer points of the chronology and plot in addition to the actual writing. But no, I am not making an excuse for sticking to a monthly schedule for a while more. At this point I need to start pushing myself to get this novel done, so as promised, as of now "Shining Cloud" is back to a bi-weekly schedule, and if that leaves my reviewers in the dust, then so be it.
What better way to celebrate the new year than to read and review a new chapter of "Shining Cloud"? :) In this chapter we are properly introduced to Nick and Mayfair's eldest son, so that's pretty exciting. I had hoped to make things even more exciting by switching this fic back to a biweekly schedule today, but I've been a bit sluggish with my writing these past couple months, and anyway all three of my reviewers are at least three chapters behind, so I might as well give them a little more time to catch up. So chapter 16 will be out on February 1, and at that point I'll be returning to the biweekly schedule come hell or high water... I'd really like to have "Shining Cloud" finished in less than two years.
To Anyone Who has had their Fiction Reviewed by Me:
If you updated your story a while ago and still haven't received a review from me on the new chapter(s), don't be afraid to nudge me with a little PM. Unless I specifically said in my last review that I may not be continuing to read your fic, then I do want to read and review that new chapter. I sometimes lose track of the stories I'm reading here, so every now and then a reminder may be in order.
If you're here to thank me for giving your story constructive criticism, please go ahead and drop me a PM. Also, take heart: I've noticed that every writer who has thanked me for my criticism has continuously improved in their quality of writing. And no, it's not because of my criticism (though that does help a little bit). It's because they're open to the idea that aspects of their writing can be improved.
To Anyone Who has Read any of my Fics:
Do not under any circumstances hesitate to review. I welcome any sort of feedback. Criticism, even non-constructive criticism, is just one more way to see how people feel about my work, which is essential for a writer.
