I'm not dead · 2:49am
Long story short, I'm not dead and I am finishing my story.
I'm not sure if I can really explain what happened. I was definately showing signs of depression for awhile. After I eventually pulled out of it, I just sort of wrote my story off as something I would never finish.
It was a Fimfiction member who managed to hunt me down and let me know that people were concerned that I was dead.
I was incredibly touched by the concern people on the site showed. However, as I think was relayed to some people, anxiety has kept me from logging in here for several months.
I am working on finishing the story, ETA November. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to finish it over the summer. There is, however, an additional 60,000 words or so in my google drive.
I have been rewritting the earlier chapters. Some are more or less the same (every chapter has had at least 800 words added in the form of a new scene or dialog), others have been completly overhauled.
If you are interested, I have decided to post the google doc link to the first five chapter rewrites. They are still in draft form (you can see some highlighted parts), but I've added about 25% more content. I've enabled commenting, so feel free to leave any comments.
If you are concerned that the new content is going to change the story, or that you are going to have to reread things, don't be. The only truly important change is the inclusion of Twilight's "memory palace," a metaphorical way of talking about her mind. But even if you don't read the rewritten chapters, I'll try to sumarize it in the next NEW chapter (a Canterlot Wedding - actually that would have been a clever title, but it is "fit for a queen"). Most of the changes are just improvements to make it tighter and stronger.
EDIT: I just realized I had failed to appologize for dissapearing and worrying people. I am profusly sorry. Hopefully the end of the story makes up for it (I think it's really good). Anyways, I am probably going to dissapear for a few days. It took a lot of emotional energy and psyching up to log in and post this.
