We are fast approaching the end of A burning Rose, dear Patrons; even though the author claims on her bio page that she’s written up to “chapter 13 or 14″, there are only six (or nine) chapters listed on ff.net because she prefers to write longhand. (Thank the gods for small blessings.) She hasn’t updated any of her fics since the end of April, so it might be a while before we are subjected to this fic’s full glory. Sadly this particular chapter is so frickin’ long I’ve had to divide it up into more manageable bites.
There is a brief Author’s Note at the beginning of this chapter that touches on the lag in transcription:
Hello there, peoplezz, Keisha’s back! I’m soorrrrrry I didn’t update this so long, but I seriously didn’t get around to it. I don’t like sitting in front of my computer and typing my story on word. It’s hard work to stay focused on typing it all exactly the way I wrote it first….. Anyways on with the story!
According to the author’s own bio, she already has these chapters written down – she needs only to transcribe them. It’s pure donkey-work and can be quite boring, but it’s all part of being a writer. It’s kinda like owning that pony every little girl asks Santa for; in order to enjoy the fun stuff, you have to deal with some unpleasant shit.
