I am an avid reader in AFF...
Something there amuses me a lot...and I'm sure you would have noticed too...

There are two types of authors in AFF that I find very amusing:

1) They create a story; write a good and interesting forward; but that story never gets updated until much much later.

2) they write a new story; have daily updates for the first 5 chapters; then slows down to alternate days of updating for the next 6-8 chapters and suddenly...if you are lucky you get weekly updates...but most of the time...irregular updates


Why I find it amusing?
For (1)...why start a new story when you don't intend to update it until months later? I mean...you should start it when you are ready to update in the following 1-2 months...
For (2)...I think too fast an update...you put up an expectation and when you can't keep up...loyal readers will be upset at the slow update...so I think they should update once a week in the beginning...


I understand that authors are not full time writers and even full time writers don't write regularly...
But I mean...don't set an expectation with the readers...and don't keep them hanging for too long...


From my experience...I've lost interest in a story...that started out 6 months a ago with a fantastic forward...but till this day...no update...
Another experience....the story is a very well-written story...the author fed us with daily updates for 5 chapters and alternate updates for another 5 and now....a chapter a week...I think it will soon be...once in a blue moon? Hahahaha

It can get very frustrating since the author is swaying from the expectation...and the expectation is what the author set "I'll do a daily update or at worse a 3 days once update"...I think if she had never said it...my expectation would not be there...


Just a random thought...feel free to ignore....

There a third type and the worst to me tbh. The authors with really good sounding plot and forward, but when you go and read the story the english is hidious. Unreadable. It sucks and i just wanna rewrite everything OTL

You are not the second...I've seen one author that updates every day and suddenly once a week, then once a month, and now...she has "disappeared".

Really? I never noticed it! Hahaha...
But there is this one particular author who starts a new story, complain about not having any feels to write and then, leave that story for a long time..
