Well, this is actually important, so please read it. Or don't. If you don't read it though, well, you won't know what I'm trying to say.
Hey guy's, I know I promised weekly updates and all that and I then disappeared for the past 4 months or something crazy like that. Sorry about that. That is part of what I'm going to address here.
So, the easiest way to say this is that life caught up to me. I was busy writing and suddenly several major things happened that forced me to leave writing for a while. I'd rather not get into that too much, as I try to keep my personal life and issues off the internet. I wish I could have let you guy's know before I just vanished, but alas, I could not. Hopefully you can forgive me, but if you can't, that's your problem, not mine. That might seem mean, but I don't want to get into any ridiculous internet drama with people I don't even know, so if you're pissed at me for leaving like I did, just know I won't respond to your barbs and whatnot.
As for my writing, that's the other thing I wish to address here. I will be continuing my writing and my stories. However, when I came back to my stories to continue them, I read them. Needless to say, I was not impressed. Both of my stories I feel hold a lot of potential that I just wasn't reaching before. They both feel rushed, as if I pushed out updates and whatnot before they were truly ready. With a bunch of amazing readers and reviewers like you guy's, I feel bad putting out that quality of work.
What I'm getting at is that I'm rewriting my stories. I'm not changing the storylines or anything, just upping the quality and fixing errors I made. My goal is to have a pair of high quality stories for you guy's to enjoy reading. With as awesome as you guys have been, I would feel bad to not put out the highest quality work I can.
A timeline for these rewrites I'm mentioning. I can type 15,000 words a day if I really try. Maybe more or less depending on how much time I have, but 15,000 words is what I can do with 8 hours of typing a day. My two stories currently comprise 129,000 words. That means that if I really tried, I could have everything rewritten in a week and a half. Then again, I don't really want to rush things either. Regardless, I should have both stories completely rewritten within a month.
Now, for the part where you readers are involved. I want your opinion on things. However, I want a full opinion, so a poll won't work. My question to you guys is this: How should I update my rewritten stories? Do you want me to delete my current stories and post new stories, blank of all reviews and whatnot? Do you want me to replace the chapters in my current stories as I rewrite them? Do you want me to stick with my current stories and update everything at once as soon as I've finished rewriting it all? If you could let me know how you feel about that question in a review or PM, that would be appreciated.
Once again, I would like to apologize for disappearing the way I did. I will do my best to have my updated stories up quickly and then continue to update frequently, but I want your guys' opinion on how that should be done before I do it.
Thank you all for everything. You guys are all amazing. Peace for now, and hopefully I'll be able to update again soon.
