I had lots of fun writing The Gate of the Middle Kingdom, it was quite exciting and enjoyable for me to experiment with short chapter formats and I learned a lot during thus project. However, what I like and enjoy to scribble down as a writer is not always what readers enjoy to read. It’s come to my attention that readers find my format cumbersome to read, because they are pulled out of the story after every chapter ends. Such issues need to be addressed.
It is for this reason that I will, again, re-write The Gate to the Middle Kingdom. I’ve now experience in formats of varying lengths where short formats are concerned. The Twitter-format was fun, but too short for me to really let my words flow. The 50-word format was a joy for me to work with, but cumbersome for the reader to plow through. The 100-word format never received such complaints, and was also a great deal of fun for me to wtite in.
I’ll therefore choose to re-write the story in thid format. The Gate to the Middle Kingdom was always meant to be written using an experimental format, but during experiments it is sometimes necessary to make compromises and adapt your original plans.
