[disclaimer: includes a lot of exclamation marks and feelings]
Always love to rant and rave after writing so I'll hopefully be able to condense my thoughts a little and put it all in here!
First off, The Exchange has ended, which still feels very weird to say! I will very likely do future extended short chapters, whenever I have the time or for special holidays so it isn't quite over yet technically! :'))
It's actually the longest story I've ever written (even in spite of it being relatively short compared to most novels). There are a few chapters here and there that I haven't been to keen on, since I wrote them during busy school weeks and they ended up being shorter than I would've like them to have been. I've always had trouble committing to any thing for a long time, but you all have been incredibly supportive and motivating! It's been a first step of mine on Wattpad to complete a story, and I'm hoping to do a longer one as my next project + plan it out better :))
I'd also really like to thank everyone who has read, commented, voted, or added The Exchange to their reading list! I can't tell you how much it's meant to me to wake up every day and find all these lovely words filling my notifications! When I joined Wattpad again, it was quite scary because it had been so long and most of the people I knew on here no longer used their account. I never thought I'd meet so many wonderful writers and readers, or see the day when this story hit more than 1000 reads!
Special shoutouts to: (I've been a little hesitant to do this because I'm probably missing someone, gosh darn, there are so many people really, but these are the lovely people who have stuck with me for a long time!) chaitialatte, crucianellas, ElleLeeLove, blueberrydessert, and lillyqueeen for all of the support and for being incredibly wonderful human beings!
And, off the top of my head, some more special mentions to: @washingtonstate, @gogreenev, @21sweetnovember, writeyourname97, @bluexskies, thebrumous, seoafin, acmegreen - for sticking with me through all of the updates :))
I hope everyone liked Matt and Hailey as much as I enjoyed writing about them!
