Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you!
Just dropping by to mention that I’ve posted Chapter Nine of Lost Then Found to Wattpad, which you can read by clicking here: Lost Then Found Chapter Nine!
Chapter Song: Crime by Grey feat. Skott
I apologize for how LONG it took me to finish this chapter. Truthfully this year has been… insane for me. I’ve traveled quite a bit, got promoted, left my job of three years for a different one (which I’m still getting used to), got my motorcycle license, and yeah it’s just been… crazy to say the least.
However, I’m fairly optimistic that this next year will be better. At least, I’m going to try and find time to write more, so I can finally finish this book I first set out to write in 2016!
I did want to thank everyone for continuing to read my story and waiting patiently (most of the time). Because this chapter took so long expectations are high, which makes me nervous, but I can say that I’m excited to write Chapter 10. I’ve already started it and I know exactly what happens in it (since I originally thought I’d be able to fit the events of Chapter 10 into Chapter 9, but alas, I’m long-winded and don’t know how to pace my stories at all).
Also would like to thank Andrea and Leslie for beta’ing this 62-page, plot-heavy chapter (yes, it’s really the size of a novella) on Christmas Eve/Christmas. THAT IS DEDICATION. But really I owe them a ton, and am so grateful to have them by my side while I try and make sense of this crazy lesbian mafia nonsense in my head (and also all the other stories swirling around my head that are waiting for their turn). Their feedback is always invaluable to me, and allows me to provide a better chapter for you guys, so yeah, thanks guys!
I HAVE been toying with the idea of writing shorter chapters (30 pages-ish) and updating more frequently, but we’ll see how this next chapter goes. As you know I hate disrupting ‘the flow’ and can only end a chapter when it ‘feels right’ (AKA cliffhanger-perfection) so limiting myself to 30 pages may not go as well as I thought. Willing to give it a shot though if it makes writing a chapter less daunting/more ‘doable’.
Anyway. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful year, and that this next year is a great one full of booze and babes and more of whatever you wish for yourself.
Thank you, as always, for reading. I hope you enjoy.
See you sooner than you think.
Hi Taleth, you’re a very talented writer and I wish you’d work full time as a writer so we can read more of your work. I’m curious to know if you could get like 50x or more followers, votes, comments and views on wattpad if you divide your content into smaller chapters..like maybe make each chapter 15 minutes worth of read instead of 2 hours and at the end of each chapter, you’d engaged your readers and ask them for comments and feedbacks. Your readers can only vote once per chapter and most of the time leave one comment after each chapter. I’ve noticed that these strategies are very effective if you want to increase wattpad followers. You can edit your work for publication later on (for your paying customers).. besides I don’t think readers would mind it so much if the contents are divided in smaller chapters.. even if you upload those chapters all at once. I look forward to your next update 🙂
[…] a chapter. To be honest, looking back at Chapter Nine’s author’s notes (or even the Chapter Nine blog post on this site) makes me cringe. Ah, to be so naive and think I would become some kind of writing machine after […]
