Bias in Reading Choices. . .

I must admit to a past bias on reading stories that are published online. I am a voracious reader and prefer finished stories. That is, I don't usually read stories that are "in progress."

There are a few reasons for this. Chief among them is there are a few stories that just end up being unfinished forever. I don't like to be left hanging indefinitely. Other times I was really into the story and I found the pauses waiting for new chapters to be agonizing.

Perhaps at heart I am an impatient person. I know I've missed out on some great stories that essentially have been going on for years as the author prefers to just keep adding chapters rather than break it up into separate stories as part of a serial.

At the same time I get to read gems like the Hawk and the Chipmunk by the Scot, straight through. Which I am presently enjoying very much.

Since I started writing Blockade Runner, I've found that have been more open to looking at other writer's current ongoing projects. I think this is a good thing.

Do you know of any REALLY good unending stories that I should be willing to pick up even though they are not yet finished? Send me your thoughts.

Thanks for reading,
