Double whammy, ‘cos you guys really deserve it.

I am so, so, so, so, SO sorry for the really, really late update. God, I’m more sorry than you can imagine. Basically I took that week and a bit off to do my tests and shit – revising (I did very well in all of them by the way. I’m very proud of myself for that). Then … I don’t know what happened. Days turned into weeks and there was still an unfinished chapter to be completed. So, I did another chapter at the last minute to try and make it up to you guys. Forgive me?

So, Edward’s changed his schedule (Which is a little obsessive, don’cha think?) and Summer’s been to therapy session #2. Out of interest, did anyone cry during her story? It was rather, um, emotional.Of course, I wrote that last night and on Saturdays, all the emotional stuff comes out of me. So, can you see why Summer wouldn’t tell that to Edward? I kinda can.

Right, the chapter songs. What’s gonna happen is when INO is finished, I’m gonna do a big clean-up – a big edit. I’ll be doing spell check, indenting and general punctuation that I’ve been getting wrong. The finished draft will go into a .PDF file to avoid anyone stealing my work (‘cos I’m paranoid like that) and you’ll also be able to download the file and read it anywhere. Another thing I’ll be doing during this big sit-down is looking particularly closely at the chapter songs ‘cos some of them are a bit iffy. These two chapter songs I’ve used [Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine and Exit Music (For A Film) by Radiohead] aren’t exactly perfect for the chapters. I’ve been trying to find songs for them all day and in the end I picked a couple that weren’t the best but would do. And they will do for now. So I can’t really write why I picked them because I didn’t really think it through. I was just so desperate to get the chapters up!

Also, while I’ve been somewhat absent from the INO world, I’ve been using Tumblr an awful lot – more than Bebo actually. So if you also have Tumblr, you must, must, must follow me and I’ll follow in return(; -http://magicratsbarefootgirl.tumblr.com. If you don’t have Tumblr, you really should consider getting it. I truly love it.

I shall try my hardest to get another chapter up soon.
