Ah is there a reason why you won't be writing series anymore :'( ?
Yes, there are a few reasons actually.
For one, I don’t want to have to deal with updates anymore. There is a big pressure that comes with people asking for the next part and even though I know in my head I can do whatever I want and update when I please, it feels like I need to update every week/ every other week, and I can’t maintain that. I mean, sometimes ON THE DAY of an update I’ll already have “so when’s the next one???” which can be a little….inconsiderate. I mean, I FULLY APPRECIATE that people look foward to the next one, but I also can’t chug out updates for one series when I have others going on.
Two, I believe you should write what you want to read. I prefer to read oneshots over series, and the oneshots I like to read are normally long ones that have a full and solid story and are almost the length of a series, like First Light by Inktae. Although my series are considerably longer than oneshots (ex: all of Imperfect Pair is 60k long) having everything put into oneshots eliminates the need for updates while still sharing the same stories I have in mind.
That would change my schedule from writing 8-10 fics a month…to about two or three. It’s something I have been wanting to do for a long time but have only recently been inspired to do it.
Don’t worry, the same types of stories will be coming out, I have a lot of Jungkook angst coming up (and Hobi too???? Sorry Hobi) LOL, but it will just be in a different form. I hope you can enjoy it all the same!!
