And this is it. I don't have a lot of places I can go and say anything or complain. Usually I use this space as a space for 'good'. Like this is a good space to report how I am recovering from my latest health scare (and there have been a lot) or that I am excited about a movie. Well, now I need to talk about how I feel right now.

Like crap.

From my previous post you can see that I am not happy because of the reception of a sequel that people begged me for - but no one showed up. I don't understand why people wanted it and then nope, not going to be interested in it. So now I am embarrassed and very sad that I sunk so much of my time into this story. Apparently no one really wanted it. I don't know what I will do with it at this point. I already have over 50k of this story with another 60-80k planned. Seems like an awful lot of work for something that is like screaming to the void. I can do that here.

On top of all of that, it seems I know have a gallbladder issue - in that I am having tests to check it out and they think it might need to come out. I am hoping not, I don't need to go under again. This would be like the 24 time. I don't want this.

Last night I lay in bed and just cried to myself. Fandom is my one outlet and it hasn't been good to me in years. Now this stupid gallbladder thing. Why? I've had so many other issues, why this?

Anyhow that's my vent/whine for today.

I can only counsel patience. It takes time for people to find a story and commit to it. I've launched my own epic this past month and the first few days after I published the initial chapter were very disheartening - no comments, few kudos. (I have a rule now, no publishing anything that is not finished, and this story was almost 160k) I'd put almost a year into the story - 6 months of writing and then months and months of editing and back and forth with my super-awesome beta, beating out the problems with hammers and tongs. And for all that work, just crickets.

But as the weeks have gone by and readers see that I've been sticking to a promised publishing schedule (Weds and Sundays), they are definitely reading and commenting and leaving kudos.

So give it time.
