First let me say this. I want to thank all of you, who supported me on this journey of my first book. Thank you for commenting, voting, reviewing or just silently reading this little book of mine.
I really appreciate it!
I was really happy when I saw that we sometimes even reached rank 30 and the fact that we could hold this book steadily in the top 100.
In the end there are approximately 7.000 of you, who had put this book into your Collections, and we amassed a total of 3,537 Million Views! I have to say, I am really proud of this, but everything has to end.
I know on this website it is really unusual that a book ends after only 250 chapters (363k Words btw.), but I decided this is the best for me right now.
I had some ideas to continue this story, in the Dragon Ball Universe like that soul prison, the fifth timeline or demon realm. This, of course, before Zeno's fight.
Obviously, I also thought that his adventures would continue in other Universes like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Btw. don't ask me what significant event would have happened there as your guess would be as good as mine.
I have always written daily and never planned ahead, which was intentional. I wanted to enjoy this novel as a reader would and therefore never knew where the story was heading.
So, if you were surprised at some plot points, so was I.
Obviously, my reaction was more like, 'That's a nice idea! Wait, does that even make sense, *flips pages to previous chapters*. Omg! It does! *writes it down*'. Well, most of the times, if it didn't then I blamed a character for being wrong or it was a scheme all along.
There were also some parts of the stories that I was dissatisfied with in hindsight in terms of sentence structure, cringe or plot, but I won't continue the story or change it in any way.
Although it has its flaws, it just shows the mood, way of thinking and skill I had at that moment and I think I don't want to erase that just to make it the 'perfect' story. I like it how it is.
Writing this story has given me an outlet for my 'creativity', but mostly to escape reality. It is not because I am sad or depressed, it was just that it had been a good way to take a break from everything and have some fun with my imagination, while sharing it with others.
Now on why I am ending this book.
I didn't experience any tragedies of any sorts, so don't worry, but I still need to close this chapter of my life. (Pun intended)
I wasn't clear on this at the beginning, obviously, but writing a chapter is really time consuming, at least for me.
In the beginning, I needed 4 hours to write a chapter of ca. 1100 words. In the end I had increased the words per chapter to 1400-1600 words, which btw. conditioned me in pumping up word counts in essays as well.
I currently need 1,5 - 2 hours for a chapter and then another half for editing as English isn't my first language.
It may not sound a lot on a daily basis as I had rarely written more than one chapter in a day, but it accumulates over weeks and months.
I even started to prioritize writing a chapter, instead of doing what I really wanted and needed to do in my free time. Of course, it was a pressure that I have given myself and in comparison, to other authors it isn't a lot at all, but it made writing a duty and not a hobby.
Of course, one could say that I could just decrease the chapters per week and continue, but I know myself. I know that once I don't do it daily, I will neglect it more and more until only 1 chapter per month is being released.
This was also why I have never missed a single day of releasing a chapter as I would have spiraled down until I would have just dropped it without a proper ending.
At least now, this book has an ending, which I hope you like or rather can accept. If you dislike it, well, I won't change it.
Btw. for those who give a sh*t, I played with the idea to drop this book back when Broly was teaching Kale and Caulifla.
I am rambling, aren't I?
What I am trying to say is that writing just doesn't fulfill me with the joy that I had in the beginning, even though it makes me emotional to end it now.
Additionally, I don't have enough time to sustain this hobby and would rather spend it to sort out my life.
(Could have just started with that and this afterword would have been a lot shorter, wouldn't it? Guys, this is how to pump up those rookie numbers!)
I have at least three books that are swirling around in my head since years.
Who knows, one day I might open this website again, not to read but to write another story and some of you might join in on the fun, writing something like "eat a d*ck" or something similar nice.
Until then, have a good one.
A last time, thanks for reading :3
