I can't wait to read what happens next.
So I was enjoying this chapter and it dawned on me that one of the main reasons you post chapter by chapter is b/c you love getting feedback. Obviously you know lots of us are loving this story, but what sort of things would like feedback about? Are there any specifics you would like another perspective on?
Thank you for that question! I just want to make sure that I'm on the right track and people are warming up to it. I also like discussing where everyone sees the story going. I just want to share it with you guys because this is the fulfillment of a dream of mine which began when I read a story called Adulthood Rites written by Octavia Butler. Most writers want to take a favorite story and turn it into their own or they form a story that is inspired by it. In my case I WANTED a story that utilized Miss Butler's idea. I'm not going to publish it and make money from it but writing is not all about publishing and making money--I just want to share the story. Thanks again
Well I can't speak for anyone else, but considering that I've never read a sci-fi romance story, I'd say that you doing a great job with warming ppl up to it. Perhaps I will even check out that book after you complete this story.As for where the story could go, there really does seem to be a lot to cover; from the birth (will it be a C-section?) to Carmella and Bilal's budding partnership as parents (and her journey from hatred to love) to all the drama that could ensure from Bilal's parents once the 5 years has passed and he wants to stay on Earth (it would be interesting if his 2nd mother went against Centurian code to try and cause more waves)...Pepper, I'm afraid that you may have a fantastic novel on your hands :)
Haha, right! When I first began writing it and I looked at how I was developing Carmella I figured I wasn't going to be able to get away with just a short story :) Oh well. I want to see where it takes me. Oh yeah, one last thing. I also post chapter by chapter so that you guys can keep me motivated to write it. I've tried writing this a year ago and kept putting it on the back burner. Now that I'm sharing it I won't be able to do that and it will have to get finished. Alas, I wish there were two of me so that I have time to write everything that I have on all of my back burners :)
