02/22/15: Recently I’ve been receiving some rude reviews. I appreciate and welcome critiques because they have helped me improve and often you guys notice things I overlook, but please don’t be mean about it. If you don’t like the story, politely tell me why and what you would do to improve it. Do not attack me.
Here are my own personal critiques on 'Cruising for Love':
-the title is awful
The title is something I’ve wanted to change since Chapter 2 was published in 2010. I literally came up with it in two seconds because I needed a title in order to upload the story. I’ve wanted to change it but at this point I feel like doing so would be a poor decision. This is something I regret. Please do not tell me the title is corny/cheesy/stupid. I am aware.
-the characterization is awful
Orihime is a clueless idiot and Ulquiorra is controlling and misogynistic. I am aware. I am fixing it.
-the grammar is awful
Endless run-ons, a million commas, unnecessary line breaks and a small vocabulary. I am aware. I am fixing it.
-the plot is awful
It’s too late to change this. Thirteen chapters in and I am committed. I’m just trying to make the best of a bad situation. If you hate it so much, please do not read. Do not review.
-chapter length is awful
Again, it is too late to change this. I can only apologize. Sorry.
-everything is awful
My personal opinion. I am not proud of this story. I am embarrassed to read it. It has become something negative in my life, but I feel a responsibility to give an ending to those who have been following it. I’m sorry for the wait.
Understand that I have recognized these faults and I am trying my best on my own time at my own pace to turn this fic into something I can be proud of.
Consider my feelings when you are writing your reviews.
01/19/14: Concerning 'Cruising for Love', I would first like to say it is not abandoned. I don't fault anyone for thinking so as nearly two years without an update is ridiculous, but I'd prefer to call it a hiatus. Thank you everyone who has reviewed/favorited/followed. Recently I have begun the painstaking process of revising the current chapters as I cannot bring myself to continue the story without first fixing everything I dislike about it, which is a lot. I'd like to make anyone reading or rereading aware that there are going to be some/many inconsistencies in quality and detail until the revision of 'CFL' is complete. For that, I apologize. My goal once I am done revising is to ultimately continue and complete the story.
