If your creative story-writing process is anything like mine, you would be better off posting the whole story when it's done. I tend to go back and forth between chapters and that includes making changes to what I might have previously considered "finished".

:shock: And I thought my stories were long lol. That will certainly be interesting to read. I too am presently editing a story that's currently at 9,444 words, and (what little) experience tells me it'll grow longer before I'm finished. It'll be my longest since "A Backyard Experiment" and that one swelled from about 9,700 words to 11,800 during the editing process.

100% agree with Aiko. If only from the creative stand point, I too often find myself going back to modify, add, or remove things that I've changed later in the story. I also often forget to add certain details or think of new details to add as I go, which is why I generally sit on a finished story for a few weeks before posting.
If you could read my mind, oh what quicksand tales my thoughts would tell!
Seriously, I wish I could save time writing by copying and pasting from my thoughts lol.

I'll read it for sure, might take a few days though ;) It took me two days to read "The Silty Secrets of Rebecca Lorengale" but I got interrupted halfway through. Couldn't wait to finish it the next day :D
