Reader Feedback Request: City of Glass

In the effort to meet my deadlines on City of Glass, I pounded out the middle of chapter one, working off of some previous work that worked pretty well—before I put it in a serial. I distinctly do not care for how chapter one turned out because it seems to have lost all the tension from the prologue and I'm pretty sure it's because I went with the outside POVs and am holding my real main characters at a distance. These are Hayley, Jena, and Shelley, who hasn't even shown up on screen yet because I dumped her remand scene.

Should I power ahead on chapter two or rewrite chapter one? Do you care?

    Hmm, I'd chalk it up to lesson learned and power on. But then I don't know the rules governing serialized fiction--whether or not revisions are acceptable, how extensive, etc.

    If you feel that you need to rework the chapter, by all means, do it. Not sure though if reposting the revised chapter is a good move.

      I like that idea best, I think: perfection and all that, though I admit to being scared of how many readers I might be losing just off friend who literally could not seem to follow the connects. But I'm not sure if they're in the right audience either. Their own fiction contains a lot of connect lines, but not changing characters, so thinky. I think I'm just going to keep on plowing hopefully and edit when it's all over.

      I think.
