Okay ladies and gentlemen, I have a question. I need advice.
Over the next couple chapters, it’s gonna get dark. Chapter 24 is going to be the worst, emotionally. The darkest. But then it’s gonna get happy for a bit, then there will be the big finale. And then things will be happy again right before the transition into the next generation.
My question is, since it is going to be pretty dark for the next couple of chapters, should I make it easier on all y’all and cut the generation short by about 3 chapters? What I COULD do, is nix chapters 23, 24, and most of 25. Then I’d have chapter 23 be Sebastian thinking about what had happened, therefore not being as emotionally difficult.
I know I said before I wouldn’t change the plot but I know that this is being emotionally draining for a lot of you–it is to me, at least. But I am willing to continue on through the dark stuff.
Though if I do do the sort of ‘recap’ situation, it wouldn’t really be changing the plot since you’d find out what had happened during those few chapters. It’d just be in a different way. Because I really respect all of you, and I don’t want it to be too hard to read and deal with.
Chapter 21 will definitely be out Monday the 27th, and chapter 22 will probably be out the 27th as well. Thanks everyone 🙂
And I should say–please don’t stop making comments about if it’s messing with emotions. I appreciate knowing if my writing is drawing out emotion, even if it’s sad or whatnot. That helps me know that I’m able to write situations and characters that are somewhat realistic, and that people can connect to. But I want to take your thoughts into consideration if it is upsetting to the point of not wanting to read more until happiness.
