Review:Concerned says:
Ok, I love these, but just sit down for an hour or two and write the next chapter. I usually only read completed fanfics for this exact reason and it's been about two/three months now and just is kind of irritating. Like, I'm a college student and I have enough free time to do this you know? Ok myrantisdonenow:) but I love you and your writing.

Author's Response: Concerned,
Well, deary, thank you for your concern. You must be a Gryffindor in having no patience. :P

I must admit to you that I'm not that great of a writer. Honestly, I can easily spend one hour on one sentence. I could spend weeks trying to figure out what needs to happen in a chapter and get writer's block over the order of things in a chapter. I know where I want to get, but have trouble on how to get there. Much is riding on this next chapter and I need it to flow well, make sense, and get it precisely how I need it to be or this entire story will be a great big FAIL. And so, with my analysis paralysis, I cannot post something that I do not think is ready.

I am not a college student. I have a wonderful family and a full time job in the financial world. I spend many late nights losing sleep trying to write a novel that I will never get paid for. While I agree that it is taking much too long, I promise you that it cannot be helped.

I have thought about not posting another word until I have finished writing the entire story, because I hate disappointing people or irritating them in making them wait. I'm unsure at this point of what I will decide.

In writing this response, I've had several days to think about what I wanted to say. I've probably written it a couple different ways and have spent a good hour trying to get it right. See, evidence again that I am a horrible writer.

Thanks for your review though. I cannot believe this story is approaching 500 Reviews! I am greatly humbled by this and can hardly believe it.

It's been a wonderful journey... a long one as you are well aware. When I began, I had no idea how much of a time committment it would become. I had no idea how difficult it has proven to be. Even so, I am committed to finishing this story... but had I known, I don't think I would've ever started.

Thanks for your concern.
