I’m back from a very long weekend (Fri-Mon) and it’s great to be able to get online. I scribbled a few words into ‘Living A Lie’ so a new chapter might be propping up in that ‘verse sometime soon.


It seems to be a Series of Memorable Reviews for me. Here’s what a kind reviewer left on Mortal Instruments, reposted here for your viewing pleasure:

I find your lack of linear story telling disturbing. Heh. Seriously though, you're a good writer with interesting ideas but having read TAGD and it's sequel (as much as you've got done), it would be super to read a story that didn't jump around and have multiple storylines set in different times and/or planes of existence. I'm a college graduate, in my 40's, well read, and I write fics (in a different fandom). I mention all this because I want you to know I'm neither uneducated or inexperienced in the world of reading/writing when I say even with all that I find your plots complicated, unnecessarily so even. It's as if you're trying too hard to be clever about it and it doesn't work as well as you think. I realize I'm in the minority, but this is my opinion and I'm expressing it. I was so pleased to read the start of this story and have it play out with a prologue and then a straight beginning. But when I read your comment about your plan to once again go in a non-linear fashion, I groaned. Sorry.



I really don’t know what to make out of this. From what the writer said, she/he has been reading my stories for quite a while but I checked through the reviews/alerts/favorites and all other ff.net stats and there’s no record of anyone by the user name of ‘Tani’ or anything similar to that. So I guess ‘Tani’ is a long-time lurker who finally got fed up with my pretentiousness and decided to do something about it.
