Feed Me, Petey

Ive been thinking some about feedback. and about fics. ive recently seen, in two seperate ljs, people saying that the author not responding to feedback hurts their feelings, insults them, and/or makes them not want to read anything else by that author.

is that anyone on here?

because, with Wingtip, i made the choice to not respond to ANY feedback individually. and my reasons, as i see them, make sense.

because, people make predictions, ask questions, think about the fic in the feedback. which is AWESOME.

but, Wingtip is so near and dear to my heart, that i dont want to accidently answer any questions. i dont want to respond to predictions. not because the questions and predictions dont matter, or even, might influence something in the story. but ive read stories where you could TELL the writer had no idea where they were going, and so, any random suggestion you made in the comments mght pop up in the next chapter or two.

there is nothing wrong with that, and shorter stuff, like Carival and Fun and Games, i do it too.

but i KNOW where Wingtip is going. I love lovelove the support i am getting from people for Wingtip, and i hope people dont stop reading because im not feedbacking.
