Dealing with an emergency rewrite on an ongoing serial
What is the best way to deal with it?
- Edit the chapter and notify people reading the next chapter that the previous one was heavily modified? (for those who had read it)
- Delete the chapter and publish the new version so that they get it again?
- Cut the chapter down to the bit that's not heavily modified, and publish a new second half of the chapter before resuming normal publication?
I have no idea how any of those impact the flow of readers, and am looking for suggestions.
If they are reading next chapter anyway, then they have probably read the previous one.
