Here I put 125 dollars in the milestone.
Yes, I think you are right, it's better not to send parts of the story to me until my birthday when it will be completed, but it's all right if you keep me informed about how is it going generally.
As for the flashbacks question, I think it's better if the story goes chronologically: starting with the characters as children, followed with a part about them in high school and concluding with them as adults.
And, as I said before, please keep in mind the possibility of sequels about the characters of the next generation. I miss childhood sweetheart stories so much that I will surely buy following stories from you, I read the presented examples and I liked your writing style.
I will leave you more freedom in elaborating the story next time, I put in so many limitations in the first one because those elements I requested remind me of other stories which I read before and that didn’t end really happily, so seeing a similar story ending happily will support me morally. And I apologize if I complained too much about my life in one of the previous posts, it’s just I wanted to express that such stories aren’t just a way to kill time for me, but something that gives me a sense of hope that not all tender and sublime ideals are yet dead in this world, and that is really important to me.
