so much missing my fix of this story I started re-reading it. I cannot tell you how rare that is. About the only thing I re-read is my own stuff, and that's mostly to correct mistakes.
Thank you! That's a huge compliment! Don't worry, I've posted another "fix" for you.
I maintain that Echoes is going to be much more enjoyable as a binge read after completion than it is as a chapter-by-chapter read. There's too much little stuff that can be forgotten in the days or weeks between mentions, and a lot of the foreshadowing is being missed by the "as it posts" readers for the same reasons.
Re rereading for mistakes: I'm right there with you. I'm still going through every chapter at least three times in the week prior to posting, tweaking and touching up as I read.
I've just found some gaps in some upcoming material that I'm freaking out about. Nothing is really missing in the logical flow of things, but there's an obviously missed opportunity to better explain a situation (it feels almost summarized as it stands), paired with an even more obvious opportunity to take care of some character stuff. I'm currently adding some scenes that might add up to an entire extra chapter, and hoping it's all polished up in time to prevent breaking my "every even numbered day" posting routine.
And once I've gone through that, and continued plowing ahead of the readers to fine-tune the later chapters, I STILL have to go back to the early chapters to root out more typos and write proper summaries. I think I'm going to need a vacation when this beast of a story is finally over.
