catriana_fiction: (wtf)
[personal profile] catriana_fiction

Okay, after a lot of internal debate and thinking, I've decided to make a few hard decisions.
  • I will no longer be doing Naruto series fics. If I do get a wild hair up my arse, it'll get posted after I've completed it.
  • I will re-open requests because of this. I work better with prompts concerning fanfiction nowadays, so feel free to request to your heart's content. Just understand, it doesn't mean it'll get filled. If something catches my eye/inspiration/muse, I'll do it. Beyond that, I make no promises.
  • I WILL be finishing Closer in probably two chapters. The next chapter is about a third of the way complete.
  • I'll be finishing Cursed Lineages in about 3-5 chapters, depending.
  • A Traitor Branded re-write has been abandoned. I no longer have the drive to continue doing SasuHina series fics.
  • Once I've completed Cursed Lineages and Closer, there is a high chance I will stop posting on FF.net
  • I might be posting original fic back up here again. Not sure.

I will say this: I found myself forgetting the original reason why I had started wanting to post on FF.net to begin with. It wasn't about getting reviews, but simply sharing something I enjoyed writing to those who might enjoy it. I began to let the reviews get to me, and that's never a good thing. I started letting people get to me, killing my confidence and making me second guess myself as a writer.

The one thing I would like to share is my AO3 account. I'll be posting new things there, including original stuffs, and I invite anyone to stop by and take a gander.

The archive needs fixing up. I'm going to split the Naruto section into different parts, because it's just too freaking long. Ugh. Whenever I get the time/motivation/drive to do that I will.

I am very sorry to hear that and I will miss your fics and posts. Yes the reviews will get to you but that is a given we all eventually listen to others even though we know we shouldn't. I want to say that you are an incredible writer and I honestly believe that your works are and still awesome. I am very sorry to hear that you will stop but will not nag you to continue if it is your decision then so be it. Maybe you will find that drive and passion once again lol. If I somehow insulted you I am sorry I didn't mean to or if I misunderstand your post then again forgive me.

Well, I didn't say I was giving up on fics, I just won't be doing any really long series fics. I just don't have the time for them anymore.

But, that's why I opened up requests. I'm still open for doing one shots or what have you, but anything longer than that would be too difficult.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciate it. ♥

Just a few quick things. One, are you not a fan of SasuHina anymore, or are you just going to focus on different pairings than them? Two, the other story that you started won't be finished? Last, take care! I hope you feel better!

Huh? I never said anything about pairings? Basically, I won't be doing any multi-chapter Naruto fics.

Which story?

The newest one you posted on LJ. Sasuke is a samurai looking sent to some undisclosed location looking for a bride to repopulate the Uchiha. The first chapter itself was amazing! I saw on deviantart that you said you had completed a couple of new chapters for a new SasuHina you started, but then you just announced that you weren't going to do anymore multi-chapater Naruto fics. Is that one going to be scrapped along with the ATB re-write?

Ah, okay. I will be finishing that one, as it's only plotted out to be perhaps 5 chapters. Maybe 6.

Okay. To be honest, I'm glad you're pacing yourself to your own accord. I think I can honestly say you're one of the few authors out there that catch themselves before they realize that they might be pushing themselves a little harder than normal. Though I am a little disheartened that you won't do as many multi-chapter stories, I can't complain. At least you let readers know first. Some authors don't even do that. I'm still waiting on the final chapter of a story that I read in '06.

FF.net is killing confidence as hell, but as for me, I'm happy you were posting there your works for some time (thanks to FF.net I found your profile here, where more of your stories were posted).

Entirely agree with Nerd4ever243.
