UPDATE THAT AFFECTS ALL FICTION THAT IS UNFINISHED: Since I can't just email people I am leaving this in my profile. Several things in my life have changed, but for the better. It has raised everything from my sense of purpose to my daughter's confidence. (It's on my site for details.) It has done wonders for my family, except it has one drawback. It is very hard to write as much as I used to, or to find a specific time to get this done. This has affected me a lot, personally, since I often write on many stories.
If your fic is affected, please wait or find me. (My website isn't hard to find.) All unfinished fics are going to my site except some exceptions.
All the unfinished fiction (except the exceptions) will be removed from this site. They will only come back after they have been finished, then I will upload them probably a few chapters a day.
They will only be in progress from my place but not here or other places.
For Lesser Pretender, I made the concept much more basic and finished it. (I deleted several chapters that created new strings, and added new chapters toward the end.) It seems to be a happier piece now that I'm proud of. The other concepts involved in it would have made it much larger, and I like the slimming down of it actually. It seems more fit this way.
I might use the other concept in another fanfiction one day. One without all the baggage of this fic following it.
While this does make it less likely it will gather the same audience numbers, by containing/withholding, and then just putting it all out at once? I will just be happy that I can continue to write and share. This is the best way for me in my life right now. :)
