-If it's not appropriate to put this journal entry here, then please let me know asap & I'll remove it if no one else has first.-
Upon going through the list of people who've favourited chapters of what I've written so far. I then went to all the people who favourited more than once & hopefully showed my appreciation for their support.
Now, before I carry on with anything else, I also want to extend my full gratitude to everyone who both favourited & commented or even viewed my stuff, whether it be once or more than. I'm not trying to meet any goals here, but it all helps & I'm very aware of that. I'm sorry I don't say 'Thanks for the fave' everytime someone does so, but that feels all too much like formal & robotic behaviour in my eyes. I don't mean to offend anyone that does do that. It's just the way I see it. Nothing more.
I wish to put what I'm about to say into a journal so that all get a chance to see it. Not that I'm any kind of hipster profit who gives the "Privelage" of ranting on. I haven't been here for very long at all & have only just started with my newest work.
So far, a fair ammount of people seem to have enjoyed what I have to offer. I found that to be rather unexpected, as well as people actually wishing to watch what I'm doing. Surprising but nice
But, the reason I find this surprising may sound like a big contradiction... I don't consider myself to be the next H.G Wells or Stephen King here. I'm merely SheyGrell. Someone that got an idea & wants to create something out of it. I'm not here to please anyone & I'm not here to provide any kind of fan service regarding the characters I've chosen... Well, maybe a little in my own strange way
What I'm pretensiously going for I suppose, is my own universe set within something that's at least been given a basis. Case & point: [link]
I heard that a good sequel takes things in new directions & explores other possibilities that would seem unlikely, whereas a bad sequel merely rehashes the actions of the original. Guess that lands me in the spotlight since all my stories are about someone who made the mistake of playing this game that's been played before... Hurr.
However, I will say this; There's some characters you will most definately know (One of them have already made their debut) & some fresh faces too. You may be surprised, pleased or disappointed. It can go either way. I won't be changing anything based on whether more people will start liking it though. So to anyone who read & enjoyed my stuff, anyone who favourited & commented so much as once & those who have me on their watch list. Thank you
I've got a sense of direction now concerning where I want to go with Paralell Depths & with every bit of feedback makes the whole thing feel somewhat validated. Despite submitting it all to about 30 different groups, I'm not trying to do the best thing you've ever seen. Why set the world on fire when you can create your own.
It's been a difficult time (I won't go into why) & I've had doubts about whether I want to do this sort of thing. Then, as I said a couple of times before now (After I put this link up I'll stop going on about it before I come across as some kind of stalker
) I came across this picture: [link]
Sekaryu may not know just how grateful I am for this one image, but I do have a lot to thank them for. 8 simple words that kept my head up, to be blunt about it. It definately helped, that's for sure.
Seeing as I've gone on for frickin' ages now & if anyone's still reading, I just want to say thank you again. I really can't stress that enough.
