valis2: Stone lion face (Emo valis)
I've been a little tense about the reception of the giant fic; and it goes to show me, oh so vividly, that when you write something and you end up writing it mostly for yourself, the not-yous that read it are not going to be as enamored of it. So there's that. I was a little sad but I'm trying to feel better about it, as there are people who are very happy with it, and in fact truly seem thrilled with it. In the long run, having a few readers who are passionate about a story is probably better than having nobody reading it, or unhappy readers, right? I am just going to look at this as another learning experience and keep moving forward. At least I have another novel writing experience under my belt.

I did realize that, based on what people are saying, I've left out a key scene and I must remember to scribble in a few new lines to explain what happened to one character. I think I know exactly what to do, which rocks my socks. It's cartoonish, but hey, the show was, too. Hence why I love it so much. Truth, love for your brother, and grey jeans; it's the Riptide way.

In other news, I'm behind on everything. I have a set of eBay store stuff to prep and list, and I need to make more crafted items, and I need to blog, and tweet, and it's already 7 pm and I'm tired tired tired. I think I'm just going to do what I can do before 10 and call it a night.

In fact, I think I might cut back on some of my hours at the day job. They don't have a ton of stuff for me to do right now, and I have more stuff going on at home that I really want to work on.

Hope you're all having a good week!

ETA: And the more I think about it, the more I am amazed that people have read such a long, talky, looong fic and been so enthusiastic about it. I think I should count myself as truly lucky that anyone at all found it interesting!
