I wish people cared about my writing as much as I do...

Hey, I don't think it's a matter of people not caring (people like me- that is). It's just that sometimes I & others get preoccupied with important, or trivial things. I had seen your 2nd chapter: Reunion,- but forgot to check out the rest. I'll be sure to start on chapter 1 this time, after I get out of work :)
I know how hard it is for writers, especially online. Most people nowadays can't be bothered to read (and spell), even to save their own lives... ~If paintings are a window, then books are a door.
Lastly, I can't wait for my tablet to be repaired & shipped back. So I don't have to sit at my computer desk all the time.

First off, I don't want you or anyone to feel obligated to read my stuff. (Though I do appreciate that you have some interest. :3)
But it's not so much that no one cares, (I have a couple friends that do, though they fall into the busy/distracted category), it that no one seems to care as much. There's just no enthusiasm, or anticipation from where I'm sitting. I know people see it (view counters don't lie) but I suspect they don't stick around long enough to be able to provide feedback, which is what I really need. Currently I have to be my own cheerleader, so to speak, and it gets exhausting to play both parts, and not knowing if what I'm doing is working.
That is an amazing and accurate way to put it. I'm jealous I didn't thought of it first. :B Sadly, written work is too large a commitment for most people, especially with the giant chapters I write, and some others just can't do digital reading (I'm one of them, as it really fucks with my eyes. It makes me sad because I'm missing out on some really cool stuff.)
And I feel you on the tablet. I'd love to have one with a keyboard I could write on. Being tied to a spot doesn't work well when you've got a bunch of nervous energy, and my proper computer is kind of fucked. I have to borrow time on someone else's. :c

Aah I see, I try to give feedback whenever possible. I know what it's like sitting in the dark (or in my case the woods, hehee :P).
Thankfully, I was able to borrow an old or spare tablet, until I get mine back- in 2 weeks sadly. Currently trying to figure it out at the moment because it's different make/model.
I hope your PC get's fixed, it sucks having to share to one sometimes...

Well hopefully it doesn't give you too much trouble. :3
I'm hoping to save up for a new one. I've been getting by on hand-me-downs and scrap for years, so it's about time I got something that actually do what I need/want. I miss being in my own space, doing things in my own time.
