Posted and edited last night. The next update will be for this fic again unless I finish the next chapter for Encounter first.

It might be only LJ's crappy mobile site, but I can't find any of my friends on my profile page. Also, my friends feed are totally empty although SN has posted her Japan trip, an entry which I only found because I got the e-mail alert. What's wrong with the LJ page? I can't post friends-locked entries anymore!

Edit: It's not only the mobile site since I'm posting from the laptop. I must also admit I hate the new minimalist layout LJ forces on us.

The two short chapters showing the trio of protagonists on the way to La Fenice has been merged into one chapter ("Since Ai firmly...") just like the last three short flashback chapters ("From the distance..."). I've also updated the summary page. The next update for the fic will probably be in January.

Posted and edited. This will probably be my last update for this year. Although I keep writing on paper, I doubt that I'll have time to type the next chapter before January. I'm going to edit and merge the chapters I've written, though, and probably update the summary page for this fix since I've neglected it lately.

These days I scribble the chapters on paper, copy the finished paragraphs into my notebooks, and leave them there to edit them before I type them down. I love the laptop for mails and chats (and I'm ten times faster when I use the keyboard), but fics are so much easier to write when I write them on paper first. Paper is better for my eyes, it helps me to focus, I can carry it anywhere since it's lighter, and it slows me down a bit so that I don't make rash decisions. I'm less paranoid of losing my work. Also, the sound of the keyboard is also rather soporific. I always end up feeling sleepy whenever I type whereas seeing the words on paper gives me a sense of satisfaction.

Posted and reread. :) I didn't find anything to edit this time. This chapter will probably merged with the previous and the next one, depending on how long the next one gets.

After staring at the short chapters for a few days, I've merged the first three chapters of Part Nineteen into one chapter since it felt right to end the chapter with the flashback to Shinichi. The latest chapter will be merged with the next short chapters.

The next update will be for "Encounter in Venice" again although it will take me a few weeks.

Posted and edited. I had to split the chapter again. It's my curse not being able to know how long a scene will be, and I could never be a journalist who has to pay attention to the word count. Anyhow, posting shorter chapters really helps me to write since I'm less paranoid about losing what I've written after posting it, and I can only leave the chapter behind me after rereading it for twenty times and fixing typos and focus on the next after posting.

Uploaded and edited. I'm going to merge this chapter and the next one with the last chapter to one long chapter since the three chapters belong together. This update was faster than expected since I've already written it last year and only needed to add a few details.
