It's been awhile, hasn't it?
Well, here's the thing. Trespasser was meant to develop into a long story that I'd update every week. But it didn't attract the eyeballs I thought it would. Even now the views are absolutely piddling. What killed my desire to continue was it becoming a staff pick, which increased views...not at all.
I suppose I should be happy I got selected, but I think they just pick things off an algorithm or something. If someone on the staff actually liked the story, they would have at the least subscribed, right? It was just sort of humiliating to get featured and for it to amount to nothing and it broke my desire to continue. It told me I was wasting my time.
So I decided to stop and refocus my energy on other projects. Will the Trespasser ever return? I do like the character. I'd love to rework things and try again. There's a lot of sophomoric stuff I don't like about the story. It's too much talk, not enough action, too much tell, not enough show.
If you liked The Trespasser, keep on eye on Capeworld Stories. It'll feature writings from Capeworld Comics, and I promise they're much better than Trespasser.
I won't delete Trespasser. As the only thing I've written that's gotten something like an award, I feel it should stay up until I remake it, whenever that might be.
