I write for lots of different fandoms and can suddenly be hijacked by a random plot bunny without warning (*coughcoughPrettyinPinkcoughcough*). I've decided to embrace that.
I love interacting with readers: if you set me a prompt, I will always do my best to fulfil it; if you leave me a gorgeous/funny review, it does sometimes inspire me to write quicker. But sometimes the pieces just don't come together or my muse goes off at tangents. I've come to the decision to just go with my muse rather than holding off from posting because someone has gotten cross with me for not updating their preferred work first.
My three most popular works are my one-shot collections - Shenny Cooper for the Win, How to be a Zen Master and Sealed with a Kiss. Because each chapter is self-contained, they are updated on an as-and-when basis i.e. as and when I have time to write and feel inspired. This may mean sometimes one is updated, possibly several times in a row, and one or both of the others isn't. I am genuinely sorry for anyone this disappoints but it is not deliberate. It's just how it sometimes happens. If it frustrates you seeing updates for other fandoms, the only thing I can suggest is unfollowing me as an author and just following your preferred fic or reading other authors. Gentle encouragement sometimes has a positive effect with regard to inspiring my muse; angry anonymous reviews just scare me off from writing at all.
The exception to this is when I write ongoing stories i.e. multi-chaptered fics with a continuous storyline. I get how disappointing/frustrating it can be to have long waits with these, or even to have them left unfinished. So when I begin writing a multi-chaptered fic, it becomes my priority. Over and above my one-shot collections. This is also why I am careful not to start posting a multi-chaptered fic without being pretty confident I can update it on a fairly regular basis and will definitely finish it.
Because of this, I still haven't started writing a sequel to Taming Granger, even though quite a few readers have kindly requested one. This is because I'm still not confident that I can produce and finish a decent story, and I don't want to start posting and then abandon it. My plan is to re-read the Harry Potter books then I think I will have a better idea of whether a sequel is viable. I will say this, though: it's reviews from recent readers that have brought it back into mind and got me thinking about the stoy again. So, yeah, gentle encouragement can sometimes make a difference. (Looking at you, lovely Ali R!)
Enough babbling. To everyone who reads, likes and comments on my stories - thank you, and hope you enjoy.
