I started it almost 11 months ago.
I feel like this is the only story I've ever written, books and fanfiction, that I'm actually proud of. Venus and Lysander came close. This one is so much more. The sad thing is that because it's so long, and it features a few...controversial ideas...I don't think it will be popular. I don't think many people will want to read it. And I can't even imagine that my publisher will accept it. It's depressing. I somehow pushed past that depression to finish this on a high note, and with honor. But I honestly think that this book won't get anywhere, unlike The Scorpion's Empress that's won multiple awards now.
Oh well. I hope that I'm wrong about this. We'll see.
I'll update again if my publisher decides to accept this. If they won't, then...I don't even want to think about it.
