Updated: 09/03/2014

In light of a recent comment made in a review on one of my stories, I have decided to take the criticism to heart and change my tactics a little for I believe that the anonymous reviewer made some very good points and put me in a whole new perspective. Therefore, I will no longer require reviews to be made before I will update a story.

"It also gives us readers the impression that you care more about getting praise and attention rather than your story..." Anonymous

To this I will humbly admit that there is truth to what you have said. Though I do whole heartily desire constructive criticism, if I examine my true motives behind writing and uploading my stories, I find that my core objective is seeking affirmation. Wanting some one to take notice in your work and looking for praise is not in and of itself a bad thing I believe, however, manipulating others to receive this attention is, and I had not realized that that was exactly what I was doing by requiring reviews before I updated.

"Seeing that sentence in your summary really disappointed me, because your writing is fantastic. However, I'm less likely to keep up with it now that I know all you're looking for is reviews."

And to this my reply is "Thank you!". Not for praising my work, but for being honest. If you truly do not continue to keep up with this story I will be sad, for I do love to share my work with others for the purpose of bringing entertainment and even joy to those who read it, not simply for that affirmation I mentioned above. However, I understand your point of view and am very grateful to you for sharing it with me so I can grow as a better writer and as a better person through and through.

So from now on, I will not require reviews for updates. I do still really want to see your opinions and yes your words of praise if you have any, because let's be honest, what writer doesn't want that? But I will let you decide whether or not you want to share those opinions or not. This does not mean the speed at which I will update will necessarily increase, please remember I have a busy college student life, but I will update, with or with out reviews, so don't feel pressured into leaving one. Thank you all for reading if you have, and thank you for any reviews you do leave me. Feel free to PM me as well. I am always open to conversation!

Blessings
Shiro

Note:

Hello, I am Miss. Shiro Tora. I used to be known as Flock-Member7.

Well, it's been almost 4 years since I last updated anything or have even been on this site for that matter. I had given up writing for a long time and though I no longer aspire to be a best-selling author I finally feel ready to take up writing again as a hobby. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it. My old stories from when I was 15-18 have been removed. The exception to this however was the one I wrote called "Burning Bridges in Hell". I removed this story for a little while to put it through some editing. I have gone through and edited most of what I already wrote and I think I can just go ahead and upload what I have a little at a time. Let me know what you think. I am also currently writing a Frozen/Rise of the Guardian's Fanfic, Jelsa, obviously. Feel free to check that one out as well. And if you didn't catch it at the beginning of my profile, I don't update until I get reviews. So all of those people I see catching my story on the 'Traffic Graph', PLEASE review!

Blessings
