I feel so horrible doing this, I always told myself I would never, but I'm leaving Booksie and taking down Amulet Bearers.
I know, I know, I'm a terrible person and I deserve all your annoyance and frustration. However, you may or may not have noticed, lately there hasn't been much in the way of any updates on Amulet Bearers. That's simply because I've lost my steam. I have NOT given up on the trilogy, I will continue this to the end, if that ends next year or next decade I don't care, it'll always be something I do.
This is because of a, possibly childish and likely will never come true, dream of one day publishing the trilogy. Now if I do want to make this a reality it means I have to put my best into every sentence I write. The way of Booksie doesn't really support this. I feel rushed to get each chapter out, even if I'm not one hundred precent happy with it. This is simply because I feel horrible keeping my (two - friends don't count, they're obligated to me feedback) readers waiting.
So I feel it will be best if I take the story down, so that the pressure of getting out each chapter is taking from me and I can really put my best into every chapter. It's just not realistic that I can keep up the passion and enthusiasm for a single story and group of characters going constantly for multiple years (I'm only fifteen). My muse is going to come and go and I don't want to string my readers along when we all know my breaks between chapters can last months.
I just want to thank everyone who's left a comment on all of my stories over the past two years. I have grown so much as a writer on this site and that's because of all of the wonderful feedback and encouragement I have found on here. I have learnt so much from so many talented writers, which I will keep with me forever.
I will continue to read the stories I am currently reading, though I'm not taking on anything new. I might not comment on every one of your chapters like I've done in the past: life and school are getting busier, but I'll make sure to touch in every few chapters.
Once again, thank-you to everyone and I am very sorry.
P.S To Brian and Bobgirl, if you so wish you can give me your email address and I'll continue to send you each chapter as they come out (be warned there is likely to be months between them). You've stuck with this story and you deserve to see it continue. However I know not everyone's comfortable putting their email out onto the internet, so if you do, I will delete your comment after I've seen it so it doesn't stay up. Thank you to you both; I truly feel horrible doing this to you.
