Notice: Sorry for the GPS errors in this one, Originally I had the fully edited one almost ready to be sent into the queue. But little did I know was that my internet connection was down. When I clicked send it came up to a page load error (I was editing it from 8:00pm to 2:00am I wanted it to be perfect) and when I went back the entire thing was gone. So I had to just do small edits and space the paragraphs. Mad

It's not the end of the world if you miss a week. I've missed several updates because my chapters just weren't up to my standards. I'm just curious as to why you were editing it inside the submission form. Don't do that. Why?
1. It's easier to read inside your word processor. You will miss all sorts of things inside the cramped submission form.
2. If something like, say, the internet goes down, then you've still got your draft.

These are easily avoidable mistakes, and I really want to see you learn from them. TAKE. YOUR. TIME. No one is going to forget about you if you miss an update or two...but they WILL avoid your work if it's continually messy or of lesser quality, especially as the submission count is getting healthy again.

Also, don't be afraid to ask for help. I'm not the best writer on this site, so I ask those who I admire to proof my work or I ask them for advice on plot details, etc. There's a whole community here who will help you (in a very genuine way) if you ask. Think about it, that's all I'm saying.
