As I stated in my earlier blog post from today, I'm w/out an editor. I happened to check out the prologue and found that, for whatever reason, SOL had changed an italicized word to all caps. So, I started reading through the entire story and realized that I needed to upload the updated chapters that hadn't been seen by an editor because there were a small number of plot, grammatical and format mistakes. I can't say that I caught everything, but hopefully most of them.

Those of you who've voted my story low, please let me know why you're voting it low. I can't very well improve my story if y'all vote but don't send any feedback. I can only surmise that maybe it's because chapter 10 was a pretty dark chapter. Well, I won't appologize for it simply because life is just like that; sometimes it's dark and violent. PTSD is like that as well. Some authors out there like to present a utopian view in their stories; I prefer to present a fairly realistic view with my stories. The utopian approach is too predictable and too cookie-cutter; once you've seen one, you've pretty much seen them all. I make no appologies for the violence in "Saving" because it's an integral part of the story. If you don't like the violence, then perhaps closer attention needs to be paid to the codes for the story.
