10 days, 100+ followers, and Rising Stars

I started Gemstoke: Dream Garden just over 10 days ago, and woke up this morning with a message from a friend informing me it had hit Rising Stars in the Action category. It's also on the RS Satire category, currently ranked #3(!). Sitting around 120 followers, with the overwhelming majority of those coming in over last weekend. I'm so (gem)stoked!

But mostly, I haven't had this much fun writing a story in years. Just taking it on the fly, hoping for the best, and genuinely enjoying learning about these characters and this world, which is growing before my eyes. Thanks to all the readers for giving me an excuse.
