So perhaps this month’s piece comes a little unexpected. When In Toronto has been extended to be about twice the length it was before.
When In Toronto was the first piece in ‘Season Two’ that was voting to be written. It was based on an idea I had when I was watching a certain music video (I will genuinely give a shout-out to anyone who can figure out which music video). I had fun writing it but I was also battling with some difficulties in Real Life(tm) while writing it, and it took way longer than I thought to write. I wanted to get it out by the end of the month, so I decided to not write everything I had pictured by the time of its release.
This hasn’t been sitting well with me for a while, so this month I decided to just write and release the second half of it anyway. My apologies if you didn’t care for he story or were eagerly awaiting my next one, it’s still coming, I just had this weird attack of guilt, something to the effect of, ‘if I’m cutting corners on my writing to meet deadlines, and I sell myself as making the stories I want to make without worry of pandering… am I really living up to what I believe in?’
It just felt… not right to leave it at that. Even if no one else would have known, the story would have remained mediocre and unfinished to me. I always want to deliver the best product I can to my readers, and this story was no exception.
So while you won’t see a new piece listed, check out When in Toronto again. I’ve added the equivalent of a ‘chapter two’ to it, right after Ken asks, ‘What happens now?’ I hope you all enjoy it, and I’ll be definitely writing my next story in this coming month. Thanks for understanding. I’ll talk to you all next week.
