    I'm ANGRY!!!

    Just kidding ^^
    Of course I'd have loved to read more of this story, but sometimes the writer just can't find a way to make things work.

    I can't really be angry at you because of two things. First, you wrote a complete explanation and an apology for stopping this story. That is much more than most writer do.
    Knowing why you did what you did makes it much easier to accept. I've nearly cried in rage when a story I was reading and appreciated very much stopped with no explanation. I felt betrayed.
    Here, I know what your motivations were and I understand them.

    Which leads me to my second point.
    Even if this story goes no further, you took your first steps in writing. Maybe in a few days, weeks or months another idea will bloom in your mind and maybe it will develop enough to become a full story, which you will be able to write better, because you will have learnt from this one, and you will know what to be careful about.

    I feel very hypocritical while writing this review because I myself have a story I'd like to write, but I'm afraid I won't be able to make it work. Also, English is not my first language (I'm French) and I'm afraid it will limit me in my writing. But deep down I know it's just an excuse and I have no real reason not to write. Seeing you write, even if you stop your story here, shows me that I should at least try.

    You have not only entertained me by writing this story, but you inspired me to do the same to. For that, I cannot thank you enough.

    hpstrmlnr, if you got an email notice saying that this story had been updated, I wanted to clarify- that was just me changing some phrasing I didn't really like in the last chapter because even though I'm no longer writing this story; I'm a nitpicker XD my apologies for the false alarm, but I will not be updating this in the future.

    Last-minute nitpick aside; I have also decided to delete this story as well as Accio Turkey, given that I am no longer writing A Thousand Hours. Hope you understand :)

    I understand your wish to delete the story on ficwad, but you should keep the file somewhere on your computer as a souvenir.
    Hoping that this one story stopping does not keep you from writing all together.
