Winds of the Past Spin-Off Story Coming This Week · 12:44pm Nov 24th, 2019

Just letting those of you who might be interested to know... I'm taking one of the remaining 6 unreleased chapters, and will be publishing it as its own fic. This chapter was initially planned to be Ch.18, so it would have come out two chapters from now, but yeah. I'm doing this for a couple reasons. One, because the word count is currently 54,000-something words, and I know that (most) of those still reading this, dislike the long chapters. I learned my lesson after the disastrous 'Days 130 to

I will respond to your response paragraph by paragraph:

Eh, I plan on doing a sequel, yes. One that's a: a lot shorter, and b: more action and adventure-oriented.

Aw...here I thought that it would be a reimagining of the series with Twilight and Rainbow Dash being an established couple, thereby preventing things like Lesson Zero, Mare Do Well, the disastrous half of the Wedding between Shining Armor and Princess Cadence, etcetera.

But, at the same time... I dunno. If there's enough demand for a sequel, then I'll do it, but it sort of feels like there's less and less active users every day, and I know that the story has taken a dip in popularity, so... I'm just not sure if it's worth it, writing a sequel to a story that isn't all that popular anymore, especially if only a handful of people are going to read it... And then of course, I can't guarantee people will like the way Winds of the Past ends, or the direction it ends up taking—hell, I'm pretty sure a lot of people were unhappy with the way the latest chapter unfolded, so... :ajsleepy:

I will give you the same piece of advice that a friend once gave me: good writers write for other people. Great writers write for themselves.

Tl;dr: I'll probably end up writing a sequel, but only if there's demand for one. Otherwise, I'll probably just end up scraping the whole concept, and leaving Winds as is.

So I take it that Winds of the Past will have a sequel?

I know how it feels to see a story without comments and wish to right that wrong. My actions haven't quite matched my wishes though, unfortunately.

I agree with the goal to make them improve, but more so with that of encouraging them to keep writing.

Done.

My pleasure. :twilightsmile: I've been trying to be a little more active on here as of late, and I know how it feels to want comments, feedback, etc., and not get it. No one else had left a comment, and the author had asked for feedback, so I would have felt bad if I had just ignored them and moved on. Also, I know how it feels to be new to writing, and sorta have no one to guide you, or give you pointers, so... I figured that I would become that person. :twilightblush: I mean, I want potential writers to improve their craft, and be encouraged to continue, rather than be discouraged by a feeling of being left in the dust, so to speak. Because, it goes without saying, that not knowing what you did wrong, or whether or not people even liked what you did can be super discouraging. :ajsleepy:

Anyway, if you read I Will Wait, why not leave a comment yourself? I'm sure they'd really appreciate it! It's basically a collab between myself and MAN0WAR832 at this point, and no one has commented on the revised version yet, so... :twilightsheepish:
