Hey everyone! I know I say this a lot, but I'm so sorry for the inconsistent posting. I'm been getting so frustrated with this story because the more I write the more the story changes from what I originally planned. And normally, as an author, you'd be able to go back and edit those inconsistencies in later drafts but I publish every week so what I write has to stick. 
          	
          	I want to produce content that you guys will enjoy and what I have right now doesn't make me feel good. There isn't as much foreshadowing as I'd like and things are kind of clunky and have inconsistencies. It's making me really frustrated and feeling like I'm not putting out good work.
          	
          	So, my plan right now is to write until I get to a certain part of the book (I already know what it is, but I don't want to spoil anything). It's about fifteen chapters away and I plan on just plowing through all that. Just one draft. No editing or anything. Just getting it out on paper where I can think it through and see what I have so I can then go back and make everything nice and pretty for you guys.
          	
          	
          	P.S. Yes, I did outline for this story. I do pretty detailed outlines of everything, but when I actually start writing the chapters I get ideas of how it can be better and start rewriting things. 
          	
          	Hopefully, this only takes me like two weeks or a month to do. But as soon as I start writing to post again, I'll update you guys. 
          	
          	Or, for quicker updates, you can add me on Snap at ajgymnast1 and join the Super Secret Dagen Fanclub where I post tiny snip bits of what I've written and Fanart that readers have made.  There are also pictures of all the characters there too if anyone is curious as to what characters look like. And warning, Holland is a thirst trap ; ) At least, that's what the other people in the chat say. 
          	
          	As always,
          	Stay icy

Hello, I am a fan of your Dragon Rider series. The story is captivating with perfect blend of different emotional tones and twist. The creation of Andis and it's people with their different cultures and conflicts top notch as well as the character development of your characters is amazing. And your attempt to show a morden world with adavance technology in third book is smooth though it is a little abrupt change from the last two books. But one thing that I strongly disliked in this series is the confusing timeline because at the end of 1st book a year has passed so Norah and all her classmates should be 19 and then from the start of 2nd book to the middle of it the story potrais that atleast 2 years have passed since the choosing ceremony so till the end of 2nd book according to the progression of story 3 years should pass and in 3rd book Norah should be 21 and legally an adult in dragon Rider community but in the book it says she in 19 years whe old when Holland's adopt her whereas according to the storyline she should be 22 years old atleast till the end of last chapter of 3rd book you have posted. So how old is she exactly how much time has passed since the choosing ceremony of Norah can you clear it up because this confusion of how much time has actually passed since start of 1 book reuins the whole story for me and I really like this series. So please can you clarify please.

@AlisRajput That's a really good suggestion, I like it. I'll definitely try to include the other continent in the rewrite and I already have ideas for its history! Eek, I'm so excited lmao for it. And yeah, I did kinda do the team injustice. That was because the way I wanted the book to go didn't really have them involved, but they do come back in B4 with a lot more "screen" time. But I'll definitely try to fix that in the rewrite : )
            And thank you! I'm glad you like the books: )
