I’ve pulled Flowers entirely from the site and ceased all work on it. A new story has been posted to replace it. I hate to seem fickle about my enthusiasm — there are few things that annoy me, personally, more than someone who can’t stick to one idea and plan. But in this case it was necessary.
Work on Flowers caused some disagreement between me and Hachi that ballooned out of all proportions. I won’t get into the drama, nor do I want to criticize another party because I know I’m at fault too. There is no such thing as an argument where only one side is composed and logical — and if you think you’re the righteous one, chance are you’re actually more at fault. But suffice to say the project has been ruined because of it. Losing a friend (or someone you thought was a friend) is never easy, and now Flowers is associated with that loss. For a creative, not-for-profit project that relies on personal inspiration and motivation to keep going, that is a death sentence.
The new story uses a recycled setting from Flowers, as well as some similar concepts, but with a completely different cast and premise. I’ve also learned my lesson on what happened when I plan ‘too much too early’. Beta feedback on this story has run much smoother, so at least from my growth as a writer, I can appreciate my brief period with Flowers for the lessons it gave me.
