For those of you who have alerts on "Whenever It Rains" and "All In Good Time," please accept my apologies for not updating. Both stories have hit a bit of a rut and I have had a lot of trouble composing chapters that do not get trashed or deleted. I am working on some drafts, but I'm afraid you will need to be patient.
This is more of a general heads up: I work full time and, with the exception of June through July, go to school full time. The writing I contribute here is for entertainment purposes so I can get on with my studies without distraction. To be honest: the writing here is not my best work, and because writing fanfiction is a hobby, that is how it will probably stay. In a rare instance, I might call upon a friend of mine to beta for me, or someone I feel comfortable enough to share my work with. The reason this does not happen more is because I can talk myself out of posting it at all very easily. If I feel a story really isn't up to par, you won't see it unless you're a live journal friend (search username: i_ve_landed).
I appreciate reviews, like any other writer. I want to know when you enjoy the story. Again, much of this won't be beta-read by someone; that in mind, if there are small errors, I probably won't repost the whole story unless I have good reason. I realize it is not that much of a pain, but helping other writers and exorcizing my plot bunnies tends to take up enough time, as it is.
If you don't like how I have written a story, consider this: I probably know what I did wrong and posted it anyways. Unfortunate comma splicing and poor word choice are realities faced by every writer, but so is a story idea that just won't go away until it has an audience. The reason I still post many of these so-so stories is because I know that, even if I think they might be crap, someone out there will appreciate the effort and enjoy it. Nothing breaks my heart more than when someone goes on a holier-than-thou grammar spree without rewarding the writer for what they did right. I have been subject to this before and, have since, left the fandom.
Bottom line: Please be respectful.
