The really annoying thing about posting a fic so many different places is that when you make a mistake or have to adjust some things, you have to do it everywhere and in different ways. Two of the places I post have rules on content, so I edit those versions and can't just copy and paste my new version. Plus some allow html, which is how I write the chapters, and others have a weird sort of-html type system, or RTF which I hate, especially with one site that forces you to use it and always causes problems. Super annoying.
Anyway, enough about that. I just felt like complaining. So I still have to edit chapter five of Dark Skies, but I'm getting there. I'm going to try to to stick to a once a month at least update schedule, and I hope that isn't too much of a pause. I write long chapters, and they take a lot of effort, so that's why it takes me longer. If I were to just scribble something out, there'd be quicker updates, but I don't want to sacrifice quality. One of my friends suggested to me that the story would be easier to read if it were a book and not something being submitted by chapter. Actually, a few people have said that, and I know it's true, so I hope putting up summaries will help in the future. I never intended for this to be such a slow boil, but here we are.
Thank you to those who have read and commented! I really appreciate it, and I hope you continue to enjoy it. It's interesting to me where people fall on the opinion scale; for some, chapters three and four are where the real fun begins, while others liked the simplicity and banter in chapter two. And I know that others are still waiting for that moment of clarity. Hoping I can deliver soon.
By the way, I have some of the best, most encouraging and awesome readers ever! I feel so lucky to have so many great people following Dark Skies. Thank you, everyone. ^^
