I know I said I’d be posting a conclusion piece to Harvester of Sorrow but I’m sorry to say that isn’t going to happen anymore. I tried writing it, have failed epically, and have decided I don’t want to ruin the story by posting a poorly written conclusion.

With that said, I’m going to go on hiatus as far as writing fics is concerned. I just don’t have the inspiration for it anymore and the case of writer’s block from hell that I had for a few years seems to have returned. I don’t know how long the hiatus will be, I might not even return with new fics, at this point I can’t say.

Thanks to everyone who has read my fics and continue to do so, your comments have been very much appreciated. ღ

The Harvester of Sorrow epilogue, or time stamp (or whatever the hell you would call it) is still in the writing stage but I was wondering if anyone who read that story before, and has experience with betaing, would be interested in betaing for me when the time comes?

I mainly require someone who is good with grammar and sentence structure. Anyone who isn't afraid to give advice when they feel something doesn't sound right, should be deleted completely, or they think a scene should be added that I didn't include would be a nice plus to me. Even constructive criticism is welcome.

None of these are expected of course, I'm more than happy with someone simply checking grammar and sentence structure. I would just really appreciate some beta help here. I'm surprisingly nervous about writing and posting a conclusion piece to this story.


On a slightly related, but not really, note:

I find myself really wanting to do some editing to Harvester of Sorrow, rewriting some scenes while shortening others, taking out some details that make me cringe to read. One scene in particular I feel I went way too far with and would like to cut out some of the details I'd written. I find it extremely disturbing and hate that I have it in the story.

I am attempting to write a conclusion piece for Harvester of Sorrow - something that has been on my agenda for years after finishing that story - only I’m quite intimidated by it. My writing style has changed over the years, I don’t write in first person anymore and find it difficult to do so. But as the first story was written in that fashion, writing in any other style feels like it wouldn’t fit.

I wrote that story when I was a young teenager still learning to art of story telling and creative writing, so that adds to my feelings of discomfort here. My writing back then was atrocious. I don’t even enjoy reading Harvester of Sorrow for that reason. I read it now and am embarrassed by how terrible it is lol. I didn’t do a whole lot of research on the subject, reactions and actions done in that story I feel shouldn’t have been done, or at least taken in a different direction.

Now to go back to it and try to give it a conclusion is tough. I want to give that story a proper ending though, especially since everyone has been asking for it, more so now than before. I just hope I can figure out a way to do that.

It doesn’t help that I haven’t truly done any writing in years. I managed to finish Hands of Fate last year but it had taken me a couple of years just to find the inspiration for even that. The passion for writing is still there but it almost feels like I’ve lost the drive and inspiration. It’s an unsettling and frustrating feeling. :(
