Soooo I have some news -.- I've had the next chapter for this rewrite for over a month but for the life of me, I couldn't force myself to post it. I felt like I was going nowhere and fast with this version of TAE. I was more concerned with pushing out longer chapters than the actually quality of the story. So I've come to the conclusion that I need to do a complete revamp [pardon the pun] of this story. From literary head to the metaphorical toe. This just hasn't been sitting right with me. I was aiming for a better version of the first draft but what I needed was to take a completely [well, not entirely] different approach. The plot hasn't changed and nor will the characters. I just had to try one more time before I completely give up on my "writing skills" or lack thereof.

I hope that those who've stayed with TAE, aren't too disappointed in me for my lack of consistency in updating because I'm hoping to change that with this next draft. It's just a little hard finding the energy I once had because it's now going into my job and with more hard work, hopefully art school soon.

I just look at this as an opportunity to practice those time management skills I've been neglecting.

With all of that said, I'd like to sincerely thank each and every person who reviewed, favorited, hell, read my first dafts of The Autumn Effect. I know how annoying it can get to read three versions of the same story but I beg you to please bare with me if you've found that you like my ideas enough to consider staying on board for my third and hopefully final try at this story. That sentence probably made absolutely no sense but just know that I appreciate and love you guys for everything you've done for me. :D

So here I go again! Onto the next attempt at not looking like an inarticulate idiot :D

Again, Thank you all!

Sincerest apologies,
