My latest twelve-part fiction serial, ‘The Wrong Address’ has now come to an end. As is my habit, I will compile all the episodes into one complete story, and post that next week. I know that some of you don’t have time to keep up with serials, or prefer to read them all at once, in a longer post.
I like to examine the response to them, as they take quite a lot of thought, as well as typing time. It is always interesting to me to see who reads them, who comments, and whether or not readers become involved with the characters.
This last serial received an average of sixty-five views for each episode. Comments were quite low, ranging from twelve to twenty, not including my replies. But that is normal, as people generally don’t need to comment on such serials. Some readers like to speculate on the outcome, guess where a twist might happen, or even predict the fate of certain characters. That makes the whole process really enjoyable for me, as it means that they are really engaged with the story.
When posting fiction, that is the most rewarding response I could wish for.
I have no idea when the next serial will pop into my head. But until then, I would like to thank everyone who stuck with it to the end, and all of those who left the much-valued comments. Also anyone who shared the Twitter notifications, reblogged, or promoted on any other social media.
Best wishes to you all, Pete.
