I really didn't know what to title this blog, so that will have to do.

I've been thinking a lot, you know, about my story, the direction it's taken, my supporters (you guys) and your various comments and advice. The thing is, I'm not an expert on telling stories, and I'll be the first person to say I don't know the best way to handle certain plot elements, or the best way for characters to act. I'll admit I'm guilty of taking shortcuts and making assumptions for the sake of moving the story along sometimes... and I feel like I'm about to take a pretty big shortcut, even though I've had this story in its entirety planned out before I started writing.

I don't know if what I'm about to say is a big deal, but I feel like it's fair to give warning before I start writing the next chapter. If you thought the ponification in the latest chapter was sudden and dramatic, it's with a fair amount of hesitation that I say things are about to pick up, and quickly. It's gonna be abrupt, it's gonna seem out of the blue, but it's what's going to happen.

There are only two more chapters left, and an epilogue. Seeing as there are certain questions left up in the air, obviously some of you are going to take this and run with it.

I want you to understand I'm walking a fine line here. The thing is, I know it's bad practice to have stories move too fast, and I'm going to try my best to reflect this in the actual story. Yes, things will move fast and that's going to cause a great deal of confusion/frustration, rushed decision-making, (by both me, and the characters). Inevitably, this is going to piss off some people at least, dash some expectations, perhaps. But if in the end it feels like I'm rushing the climax, it's because that's simply the circumstances of the story.

I don't know if this is the right thing to be putting out there, but it feels better than just trucking along and dumping plot-bombs in the next chapter without warning. In any case, I don't know when I'll get around to writing again, as it's Christmas and all, and I'm trying to figure out this whole "real life" thing and getting an internship for spring.

So... thoughts?

Your doing a good job on the story, cant wait to see what happens. Hope you can pull off a satisfying ending in two chapters after such a long set up.
