My most recent fiction serial ‘Connect For Love’, has now ended. As is my habit, I am taking an overview of the views and reactions to it. I always do this, in the hope of improving my writing, and producing better fiction in the future, especially where serials are concerned.
I kept this one short, only ten parts. Some of my serials have run to almost thirty parts, and that means a great deal of investment from the readers. On this occasion, each of those ten parts received around sixty views or more. As is to be expected, comments were less than views, and generally from the same people each day.
After publishing the final part, it was soon apparent that most readers were actually disappointed with the ending, the one I always had in mind. To those of you who felt this serial didn’t work, I can only apologise, and thank you for reading it all. And for the few of you that really enjoyed that conclusion, many thanks too. The constructive criticism I received in some comments was taken on board, and also very much appreciated.
It’s no big deal. At the end of the day, it’s just a story on a blog. 🙂
I will soon be publishing all ten parts as one post, probably over the weekend. This is for the benefit of the readers who prefer to read the whole thing as one long story.
So once again, I would like to thank everyone who stayed with it for every episode, shared links on other platforms, or promoted it on Twitter, and on their own blogs.
Best wishes to you all, Pete.
