I liked the idea of the diary entries to let the reader know what's going on in the characters' minds.
Author's Response: I am rather glad that you liked the Diary inserts, and I hope to incorparate a few more into the story line, I find that it helps to bring the story together.rnI am at presant writting the next chapter and it should be up soon, so keep your eyes peeled for updates.rnrnOnce again thankyou for you fantastic reviews they make me want to type faster to get the story out.rnrnCrystal
I'm glad to see that you got through your writer's block. Your story is very absorbing. Don't pay any attention to the flamers on FF.net. I've heard from more than one quarter that most of them are anal-retentive twits who merely like to hear themselves talk. If you're going to deviate a bit from the canon, give your story an AU warning. That will usually defuse half the critics. My only other suggestion is that you put Elvish phrases in italics to set them apart from English.
Author's Response: Thank you for your response once again, it is a great thing to know someone other than my BETA reader has faith in my writing and is willing to give me some sensible ideas as to what needs tweeked - even if it is a minor thing. I am currently brainstorming on Chapter 9 and it should be up soon - I hope!rnrnI have a friend that I bounce ideas around with for each chapter and helps me emensily with the male aspect of the story. At the moment he has been unavailable due to his work but he has said that sometime in the next few weeks we will be able to bounce ideas around again. Please bare with me as it goes.rnrnCrystal.
I've only finished reading two chapters, so far, but this is very good. I look forward to reading your other stories too.
Author's Response: Thankyou ever so much for you fantastic review. When I posted this on FF.net I was constantly flamed because of the way I write.rnThe reason I write the way I do is because I am British and have lived in the USA for nigh on 7 years and there is a big differenc e between American english and British english.rnI hope that you get a chance to read the rest of the fic soon and I await to hear what you think.rnrnCrystal
