The Prettiest Thing - Chapter Five

Someone left me a review saying that since I wasn't updating quickly enough, people were going to lose interest in my story. I hope that person was not serious because I have updated a chapter every day since Saturday. I cannot update any faster than I am right now. Chapter five has just been uploaded onto AFF.net of The Prettiest Thing. I'm trying to write all of you a good enjoyable story while at the same time, updating the story like I used to update my stories. Just remember that you all have to be patient with me if I fall behind. And in case anyone was wondering, A Fairy Tale will be updated on weekends so don't think I have forgotten about it while writing all of these chapters for The Prettiest Thing.

People have offered to do fanart for me and for that, I am so grateful. As for the real people I have for Brett, Ella and Trevor - they are models. I do not know who they are. I do know that Joy is an actress named Aimee Teegarden but other than that, I do not know the models' names. I know it will make fanart harder to do but thank you to everyone for trying.

Below is a print of Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth, which is featured in chapter five, and also, there is a video of "Lay Lady Lay" sung by Magnet. It is actually a fanvideo someone made for Sleeping Beauty but since that movie is one of my favorites and I love the song, I wanted to post it so you guys could at least hear the song that I listened to while writing this newest chapter. Please read and review for me. Thank you.

Okay whoever commented that you were going to lose readers due to "slow" updates is OBVIOUSLY not a TRUE fan because umm...hello?? If they were here like 3 weeks ago they would have been around for your post about stopping writing all together, then continuing at a moderate pace to keep you sane in combination with your outside life. And if they are a fan who just recently found you, they have NO right to make a judgement or statement like that. Either way, they are in the wrong, you are in the right. You are doing PERFECTLY fine with your updating speed. Once a week would keep me happy so once a day is like a dream come true.
I'm not going to say ignore them because I know that's damn near impossible, but know that you do have loyal fans who are MORE than happy with you, your stories and your updates.

And now I'm going to go read chapter 5!!!!!

yeah that comment is from Sara, not saa :)

Whoever wrote that must be crazy! Sure I authors to update their stories ASAP, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you should.

I mean, I want to know what happens next but I also don't want the story to end! I think a chapter a week is good but if you aren't able to do that, then a chapter at least every two weeks would be good...but don't make us wait too long! :-)

I have to agree with Sara though. Whoever wrote that comment must not be a true fan or is just now starting to read your stories and doesn't know how fast you really update. You update faster than any author I know and you keep us updated on the stories and where you've been which is excellent!

By the way...I absolutely adore The Prettiest Thing. Sorry I don't review on AFF.net but it's easier since I am able to easily sign in and post stuff here. I was hoping that this is the chapter where they would kiss, and it was! I got really excited, lol.

Thanks for all your hard work and all the recent updates that you've given us!

Take care!

I must be catching something from Sara. :P

In the first line, I meant to write, "Sure I want authors to update their stories ASAP."

Yeah right, lose readers !!! O.o It's not gonna happen trust me ^^
Great fantastic chapter, the precedent has something interesting from "friday night lights" to me, and now we're back in a love story!!
It's just fantastic, well-writen as always, and updates once a day is a dream come true (even if you can of course update when you want and can =D)

You're updating so fast that I barely have time to read a chapter before you update another. Not that I'm complaining, of course! I love to read your stories everyday :D

Thank you so much for the updates. It's great to take a break from studying to read a new chapter! It really makes my day :D

I love that picture. It's so pretty and expressive. It's a very good choice for this chapter, as the music. I loved it!

Another, great chapter! Whoever said that you are updating slowly is crazy, there is a new update almost every day!! Thanks!

Awesome new chapter. I can't wait to see how Ella and Brett interact now that they've kissed, awkward maybe?

Whoever it was that said that you were too slow updating is nuts! They either are not checking on a regular basis or have unrealistic expectations. You have a life outside of writing and that needs to be respected. Updating once a week or every couple of weeks would be completely understandable and yet you manage to update daily for us, so thank you.

I won't repeat my review from AFF but I will say you might just be writing my next favorite. It is something about this story pulling me. I wish I were articulate enough to express exactly what it is that has capture me so. Also I LOVE that you are updating DAILY. I don't expect for this to continue because you do have a life, outside of writing, but while you are dishing out daily servings of great writing I will surely greedily eat it up.
