Re: Dealing with an emergency rewrite on an ongoing serial

Due to... a character issue that I completely missed (being too close to your own story does that sometimes), I have a rewrite of the last chapter I posted that is absolutely needed after people pointed out to me the unrealistic reaction of my MCs.

What is the best way to deal with it?

  1. Edit the chapter and notify people reading the next chapter that the previous one was heavily modified? (for those who had read it)

  2. Delete the chapter and publish the new version so that they get it again?

  3. 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.
