I'm not certain how the statistics SOL uses works but I'd like to thank all of you who've voted. The story is far from perfect but I find it interesting and, in the end, I'm really the only one I have to please because I know that I can't please everyone and I don't expect to.
I am curious about some of the '1' votes that have been cast, though. From what I understand, a '1' means that you hated it. Honestly, I'm fine with that; I guess it hurts my ego a bit but I'm okay. It's not going to make me stop writing or posting the story. I do want to know why you hated it, however. I'm hoping it will make me a better writer. So, please, if you've given the story a '1' or plan to give the story a '1' please write me an anonymous e-mail to let me know why you hated it.
Thanks for reading!
