Well, Shift has been finished, for the third time now (for those of you who don't remember this was the edited version). Not that it is completely edited, of course, as pointed out by my reviewers in the many commas I am missing and those pesky spelling mistakes Word never catches. And aside from my horrible grammar, the plot still needs some tweaking here and there to tighten up some loose ends. I don't think it will ever be perfect, not that anyone has ever attained such a thing, but it could be worth trying. Either way, I plan on using the summer to make the story as good as it can possibly be.
This being said, I can't say whether I am happy or excited or sad that the story is done…well almost done anyway. Truthfully, I don't want to let my characters go, I've grown to like them too much and being the stubborn person I am they won't be able to sneak away without a fight. And, being me their adventures aren't quite done yet. If you can't guess what I'm hinting at, I'll just shout it since I'm so excited. I am planning on writing a sequel! Yay sequel! This means I haven't entirely exhausted myself of ideas! Haha, and fortunately, for those of you who somehow still want to read on, Chapter One of this sequel has already been written…and—wait for it—posted!! It is under the stand-in-title Two Faced.
Now it comes to my loyal (and silent) readers/reviewers. I don't know what to say other than thank you. You guys have really made writing this story fun and worthwhile. To know you guys actually read my work and liked it is still a mystifying concept to me. All of you, really, I can't say it enough, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you! My characters owe some of their existence to you and they all thank you as well (even Matt). lol
If anyone has any questions, comments, suggestions, anything, don't be afraid to tell me. I would love to hear it, just shoot me a PM or leave it in a review after this Note.
And so we come, finally, to the last and final question. And I ask this seriously to all of you so please, answer honestly no matter what the answer may be.
Do you think I should publish Shift? (Well, at least try anyway.)
Once again, thank you all so much! And don't forget to look at Two Faced!
