So, I've been thinking, and I know you all are wonderfully patient (and I am grateful for that), but due to my insanely busy schedule, a December where I've got some bug Christmas plans, and a million other things, I refuse to let this story drag out.
So, I have a proposal: I've already got about 8 (maybe more maybe less) chapters ready. I wanted to release it as a movie, but the way this is going, maybe it is better like this.
My question is, to every person I know on this wiki: Are you planning to read this or not, and if you are, would you rather one big release or chapters?
As a person who doesn't really read fanfics, I apologise if my suggestion doesn't work. But here are my thoughts:
1. If you make one big release, then I believe it becomes relatively short (maybe). Like a movie instead of a series. That would encourage more people, especially whose who are busy or not motivated enough, to read it. Just imagine: if given 2 options: a movie or a series. Which would you choose? Most will probably probably choose the former, because it then takes less time(Unless they become so attached to the story that they want to know more, that's what fanfics are for, right? But that's not relevant for this point).
2. In case of chapters, it gets easier to follow the story, because then its parts are divided. That's why paragraphs in an article, chapters in a novel make it easier for the user to follow the narration. Plus, topics of a new chapter give the reader an idea of what they can expect, and that makes the story more intelligible.
Hope this helped Wiki Guy. All the best with whatever's going to come up this December and hope you have a wonderful Christmas(I know it's too early, but still ;D).
Hey umm... Wiki Guy, I'm really sorry if I sound kind of selfish, but is it pssible for you to give me some time in around, like, 3-4 weeks? Just a small amount of time. Although I've got it inside of me for over a year, I couldn't really talk about it. But I believe people like you will understand. It's completely okay if you can't do this, but can you help?
YOU ARE NOT BEING SELFISH! Let me share a little something with you: I was lucky to be born. And ever since, I've decided to dedicate my life to help others and make my existence meaningful. I am ALWAYS here for those in need.
Whenever you need to send this, whatever you need to send, do it! I will listen. Promise. All the time you need will be given.
Well, IT'S OFFICIAL! "Balthazar Cavendish Vs The World" will be split into chapters, with the first coming...
Yes, on Saturday, November 16th, you will get to see the story I've been teasing for nearly a year!
I must note that it is a short chapter, and the real meat begins in Chapter 2, but still!
And every two days, a new chapter will be posted!
With Author's notes and all!
I really REALLY hope you all will talk to me about the story, through comments or message walls or chats!
I'm down for anything, from raging critiques to loving praise to curious questions!
