    Heart 𝄞Beats♫: Small Delay

    Heart 𝄞Beats♫ will, unfortunately, be delayed by one week for a variety of reasons:

    1. I'm attending my grandma's funeral on 7/21/2018 (when the story is slated to update)
    2. Chapter 8 is the prelude to a pivotal point in the story, and I need more time to set the scene just right

    How Do You Do, Fellow Kids?

    Not even going to apologize for my absence. You all should know by now that I tend to take sudden, quiet breaks for great lengths of time. But, yet again, I'm back. Still gaining followers after all these years? The fuck, guys.

    Update

    Hey, guys. No, don't fear: I'm not dead and not going back on my word to disappear for another 3 years (for real, this time). Rather, finals are kicking up and I started a YouTube. Additionally, I'm trying to figure out how to get these next few chapters to flow as smoothly as I want them; some pretty bug stuff coming up in

Looking for an editor · 7:45pm Jul 28th, 2018

Wowee look at this Darkswirl missed another update cycle and now she wants something from you wowee.

All joking and self deprecation aside, I'm looking for a long time editor or editors from my surprisingly large follower base (seriously what the heck guys) who can be available at least three days a month to help with a variety of stories, many of which aren't going to see the light of day until they are finished and as polished as they can be.

I know it's a lot to ask considering I've been unreliable in terms of my updates, but a lot of that stems from lack of confidence in my work. If I can get someone who likes my work (hence pulling from my followers), it'd be a great help to my confidence and updates could become more reliable.

To start off, I need an editor who can keep my characters in line and, well, in character. As I write, my heart tended to take control and it led my story far astray at times to the point where I ended up blasting through details just to get straight to the plots. I've done my best to curb that, but it still happens from time to time and then I have to go back and redo that section of the story which takes even more time.

I also need an editor I can bounce ideas off of and who can be as brutal with me as can be in terms of questioning "why does x have to happen?" as it helps cement my story.

In return, not only will you get to see even unfinished stuff from me to satisfy your curiosity but, once you've proven you're not just on board to steal my lucky charms see my ideas and then bolt, I'll answer any question about any story of mine to the best of my ability. Really, any question. I'm so desperate for help to get my stuff off the ground that I'm willing to spill the endings and stuff to a person.

If neither of these rewards interest you, I'm open to suggestions. I've already posted in the Looking For Editors group.
