11172016 - hmmm...I just realized that I've been doing the date wrong for some time...it's supposed to be DDMMYYYY, but I've been backsliding to MMDDYYYY (I hear that's an American quirk?). but I digress...
still working on chapter 47...in the interim, since it's been exactly one month since chapter 46 went up, I've decided to examine the statistics, and found something interesting. readership/views for chapter 46 as of 16 November:
Part 1 of 3 - 230 views, or 7.42 views per day
Part 2 of 3 - 231 views, or 7.45 views per day
Part 3 of 3 - 164 views, or 5.29 views per day
okay, I've seen this before, and last time it evened out over time. also, it appears to be in line with chapter 45, which had an average of 230 views per part after one month. so maybe some folks haven't finished? but then shouldn't part 2 be smaller than part 1? and why such a big difference on part 3, where we finally meet the Drow? are folks not interested in combat? or is it the Drow? I wish I knew...please don't be afraid, dear readers, speak up and let me know, or things ain't gonna change until a revision comes along (and revisions left off at what, chapter 30? that's something else I need to work on...)
ah, part 3 also had a mature filter due to violence/harsh language, could that be it? nope, chapter 45 parts 1 and 2 both had mature filters for the same thing. so combat doesn't seem to be it either. what's going on with chapter 46 part 3? maybe part 2 is so boring, some folks gave up? I'll have to look into that...
