Question for all of you! How close to April 1st is fair game for a serial plot that's only starting?
See, I knew this would happen... "Time & Tied" is 47 parts, so at one part per week, starting after the last "April Fool", that means I'll finish 5 weeks before the next one, i.e.- Can't submit T&T this year. My plan is to return to "Epsilon Project" (I need more editing time on T&T parts 48-96), but since the Epsilon universe is voting based, and hence would launch MARCH 6TH, that seems a bit unfair, to expect someone to write something in under a month based on only a couple weeks' worth of material. Granted, Alice will be back (she hinges all my Epsilon stories together) and Alison will be back (I miss my depressive teleporter character), but the rest I won't know until end of February. What do you all think? Fair/Unfair?
Oh, and for the record, the "April Fools" is a good project to get into. I *still* haven't beaten my view hits for April 1st 2015. Also, someone came to my site from the last "April Fools" thread here, late last December, and kicked around my site for a while, giving me 20 views I wouldn't have had otherwise. That's pretty good staying power.
