BMS’ story has been updated on AFF, SOL and Tablo if you prefer reading on those websites.
As I mentioned a few blog posts, I like schadenfreude. In a way, the feedback I got from several people in regards to last week’s chapter were encouraging. “It made me sick,” “What the fuck,” “It was heartbreaking,” etc. In a weird way, I’m glad so many people had such strong emotional reactions. If I’m going to make a bold move like that in the story, I infinitely appreciate that I didn’t half-ass it and people were still affected. That means a lot to me.
At the same time, I understand this hit home a bit too hard for some readers, and I’m sorry for that. I completely understand the negative feedback from some of you (no death threats though, I’m almost disappointed). Some of you have grown so close to Adam or Nicole it feels like they’re real people. Others have been in a similar situation and can empathize with Adam. No matter what your reason, if you’re hurting because of that, I’m sorry. I suppose it’s a good thing BMS has 20 chapters and not 18, huh?
After chapter 20 is finished, I’ll be moving on to different stories but I am planning on another story, a ‘grade 10’ chapter of Adam’s life. It’ll have different themes than just learning to grow up in high school – it’s a little more difficult to write in that way, even in concept form, so I can’t say when I’ll feel confident enough to start writing it. In the meantime, I’ve put off GBM (the Good, the Bad and the Molly) for far too long, so I’ll be picking that story back up.
I’ve also started to dabble in smaller stories. People who follow my Patreon (you know, all one of you) know of a working title of a smaller story (as in a story that doesn’t have chapters). As the story’s concept comes to fruition, I’ll be sure to update the Patreon blog to better include the plot, so that’s a reason to support me I guess. I’m still blown away that I even have a Patreon. Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you Alex_209. I never thought I could even start anything with my writing, and your support warms my heart.
Is that everything? I think it is. If I missed anything, feel free to pipe up in the comments or something. I hope you all have a great week.
