When I first started writing "First Winter at Fire Lodge," I had a goal of learning how to slow down and tell a story at length, without rushing to get to the payoff. This morning I posted chapter 14 and the story's still not over, so I think it's safe to say I've learned how to slow down. And I'd like to thank all my readers, for letting me have this chance. It means a lot that you trust me enough to eventually get you somewhere that you're willing to come along with me. And while I do get some comments trying to get me to speed things up, it seems like I get even more thanking me for taking my time in telling the story. Thank you for your support.
And I'd like to say, both on my behalf and on behalf of every writer I've ever talked with (and probably most of the ones I haven't): COMMENTS = LOVE. The only way we have of knowing if you like our stories, what parts of the stories you particularly enjoy, what parts didn't work for you, etc., is through your comments. And so I urge you - I beg you even - (and I'm working on this myself): If you're not leaving comments, please start. And if you are leaving comments, try to leave better ones. We want you to be happy with our stories, but without your feedback we're just shouting at the ocean.
Thank you for listening. Have a great day.
