If you can recommend a good site, I'll consider posting it there too

and no need to be horrified. I'm sure your comic submission will go smoothly

Dx yeah Im sure its just nerves...

hmm. well, im working on my own website, that might be beneficial for a representation of your work, but I might just make an account. ive heard smack jeeves is simple enough (you can read with out signing in)

but at the same time, then people will read it and not follow so you wont have proof of your success gonk *rambles* don't mind me, I talk to myself

ill probably just make an account then sweatdrop

I'm back!!! I was away for work but I'm back. I'm going to write again, too.

hmm wow they changed their site!!!

Good story so far, looks like we should be expecting some sort of conflict soon?

Yes, next chapter
by the way, I just made a big update that finished chapter 5!
So y'know, Welcome Back!

On a different note, I'm a little dissatisfied with a few things
I told myself I'd make the volumes each six chapters long, but I made the sixth chapter extra long, so I decided to break it up into three chapters. However, ending the volume on the sixth chapter feels a little . . . . bland. Mostly because it isn't until the seventh chapter that real stuff starts to happen.
I know it may seem that I ignore everyone's advice, but I really do take it into account. Particularly how slowly things progress. I'm trying to think of ways to punch up the storyline, of volume one, but I may need some help on making it work.
Edits need to be made anyway. There are some technical changes I feel need to be made. It would help if I could find an editor. Can anybody suggest one?

if you are looking for an editor, I do know a few from outside of North America. Still, I wouldn't depend on them much since they have their own "standards" since they are from a different culture.

As for how to end a volume with the most appropriate ending, may I suggest a cliffhanger? Because you want your readers to crave your work, you know.

pardon me jumping in,
but I agree with leaving off on cliffhangers.
if you are worried about too slow a pace, a good way to think is on every "right" (if it were a physical copy for instance) page should be a cliffhanger to make the reader want to "turn" the page.
I also noticed how you spoke about youre usual break down. again try mapping out where you want to leave the reader on every page/volume. I write American style comics I suppose so it could be different for manga, but I think any comic benefits from that kind of writing!

sorry again to intrude *poof*

well, it does end on something of a cliffhanger. I'm just wondering if it will be enough of a cliffhanger
I guess I'll just wait and see
