Ed: Feeling better now... I had the day from hell yesterday, I spent about 8 hours crying on and off about an accumulation of stress and misery I'm not going to get into again because I'll start crying again if I do, my friends were worried that I might be having a nervous breakdown and I'm not entirely sure they're wrong.
So what do I wake up to this morning?
"u know u havent been uppdatin for months now i wanna no wat happens next so UPDATE!NOW!OR!DIE!gooday'"
I have never, EVER been so tempted to post a chapter 23 that says you fscking childish bitch, you have NO comprehension of what my life is like, and you have no RIGHT to dictate my life to me. And you and people like you have so completely ruined my enjoyment in writing my story that it's no longer a pleasure, it's a drudgework that I feel obligated to beat my head against through some externally imposed duty to people I never promised anything to. You don't know me. You don't know the shit I'm living with. Fsck you, fsck the story, fsck FF.net, I quit, because it's damn well not worth it to take badly spelled abuse from infantile preteens because I have my own goddamned life to deal with.
I don't know if I'm actually going to let her win that much. But I'm so tempted right now it's not even funny.
I'm likely to tone down the profanity later, but the sentiment remains... right now I have to get to another meeting...
ED: ^^;;;;; Exhausted, home again, survived a Christmas that sucked much less than it could have, so I'm feeling more sane... still mad at that reviewer but determined not to screw the entire story because of it... strongly tempted to follow someone's suggestion and post here first and leave FF.net hanging for a few weeks-to-months though... owe all of you major hugs... going to try to distribute some virtual hugs and then fall over for a few more hours before I get up and get back to work-work tomorrow...
