Northern Heart, Home


The details of each chapter are created during the writing, though an overall plot controls the narrative. The pacing changes from scene to scene depending on the interest and importance of the events. As long as each chapter adheres to the overall framework, it works for me. I tend to come back and revise, edit, update, tweak, etc. chapters after I’ve written them, so sometimes it pays to reread.

If you like the story, please leave me a comment.

Feel free to remind me if I lose track of something and forget to come back to it, or if there are typos in the text.

Feedback Policy

I love feedback. It’s great, and it lets me know what you think of the story. However, in my legal interests–so that no one can make a comment and later claim that something I wrote was derived from a comment they made–I must say here that by using this website and posting feedback and comments on this website and story, you agree to waive all rights to those suggestions and all rights to compensation for them.

This policy has to be up here just in case someone tries to sue me for compensation after having pointed out that I missed a comma or gapped a word in a post or because they think something they said in a comment was similar to something that I later wrote and that they should own the rights to my story because of it.

I am not going to steal your ideas. I have plenty of my own. If you guess at events that will come up in the next chapter…good! I’m thrilled that you’re interested and guessing.

So please do give me feedback. If you give exceptional feedback, I will add your name to the acknowledgments page.
