A Note About the Regularity of Story Updates

While I eventually finish each story that I write, I tend to take my time. I try to pay a lot of attention to grammar, story arcs, plot continuity, and to make sure each chapter furthers the plot in some way. This process can be lengthy. In the end, I believe it makes for a better story. I also feel it is fair to warn readers that my original writing always takes precedence over my fan fiction stories, so if I haven't updated for a while, chances are its because I'm working on an original piece.

Reviews

I consider each review a small gift. I don't believe in holding readers hostage for reviews in any way, shape or form; you are free to enjoy the story and leave feedback, and you are also free to enjoy the story without giving feedback. I also don't believe in dictating to readers what kind of reviews to leave - that defeats the entire purpose. Don't feel bad about adding a story of mine to your favorites or your story alerts without reviewing! For me, this is all in fun and I'm very glad if my little scribblings in any way add any sort of joy to your day.


January, 2013 -Please note that I'll be taking an extended hiatus from all of my works in progress to work on some original writing that is under contract to a publisher. Any and all updates to WOP will be sporadic for the foreseeable future. Thanks so much for reading!
