So just a quick happy announcement... I finished the first chapter of book 3 of the Draygon series, Draygon Ashes. It's short, it's rough, but at least the basic bones are there! I can deal with fleshing it out if I ever decide to edit the series (and I mean a real edit, not just the basic typo pass I did when I re-posted the first two books to Wattpad)
          	
          	This unfortunately doesn't mean book 3 will be coming to either Wattpad or Tapas any time soon (especially since I'm still not sure I'm staying on Tapas since I just haven't had the energy to build a fan base over there and without a fanbase there are worse crickets than Wattpad has for me LOL) but it's at least started.
          	
          	I'm still struggling to write. Every sentence I write is met with my head telling me it sucks so I'm not pushing myself to write with any kind of regularity because that's just asking me to suffer. This means I might write a paragraph one day, then nothing for weeks, but it's at least started and that's really all I can ask of myself right now. I know some of you have been wondering about book 3 and that's why I wanted to give this update. I'll do my best to keep people updated here until the day I decide that I'm truly done with Wattpad for good. And yes, that day is still possible. It really depends  on how the crap in my head goes and how long I can keep doing even minimal writing. If I'm not writing, there's no point to be on a writing website LOL
          	
          	I'm a train wreck and I have been for a long while now, but I am trying to pull myself out of it. I want writing to be fun again so I can go back to doing it. Lord knows I need a hobby.

          	  It is always the case with writers but you have to overcome it so that your ideals are actualised. Your ideas and style of writing is unique in it's own way.  There's ways your work could surpass those before you and after. Take your time, take it easy. Open yourself to new things, then when you are relaxed you can always continue. I look forward to reading the book 3 of the Draygon series. You are great as you are but strive also to be greater.

@GeorgeCloudJr Honestly with the way my head is right now, I don't have to try at all to hate what I'm doing. That is basically instant right now. So I write as much as I can until that voice gets too loud and then I stop and wait until I have the urge to write again, no matter how long it takes for that urge to get here. I do miss writing, but missing it just hasn't been enough right now. But I'll either get there or I won't. Not too worried about it at this point. I'd just really like to be able to give closure to the Draygon books so I don't leave people hanging like I did the Celestial Children trilogy.
          	  
          	  @Shad0w99 Not sure they're really that original LOL I'm sure someone, somewhere has done it before and done it better.

Is there a third  book in the draygon series. 

Prisim

@frosrieb Hopefully eventually. But I'm struggling with my confidence so just haven't written much of it at all. I've gotten about a chapter done but haven't touched it in a month. I'm trying, but it's one of those can't force myself moments so I have to ride the tides of wanting to write as they come in.

With today's post, How We Found Us is once again complete on Wattpad. It will be the last book I bring back unless I decide to come back full time. I am so happy that bringing some of my books back have helped some of you through everything going on. They will remain up through the rest of this year. In January I'll sit down and have a heart to heart with myself about my future in writing if I haven't already done so. If I'm still not writing at that time then I'm unfortunately probably done with it. In which case there will no longer be a reason for me to be on either Wattpad or Tapas.
          
          Regardless of what I ultimately decide I want to thank everyone for their continued support. Without you guys I wouldn't still be trying to fight through this. I wish I had in myself half the confidence y'all have in me. It does suck to have people keep telling you you're a good writer but your brain just not believe it because of whatever excuse it comes up with, some valid some not. That's something I have to figure out for myself, nobody can do it for me.
          
          I'm not sure how often I'll be checking Wattpad but feel free to message me if you want to keep in touch, I will still be checking periodically.
          
          If you're like me and still surrounded by COVID-19 please stay safe, stay healthy, and fight on.
          
          With that, this blue bunny is once again on a Wattpad hiatus until she can figure crap out.

There are only 8 chapters left of the re-post of How We Found Us. I am so very thankful the books I chose to bring back have helped some of you through all of this insanity going on. HWFU is still going to be the last one I bring back, but I have decided that I won't make any decisions about when/if I remove my books again until the end of the year. So each book I brought back will remain up until January at the earliest.
          
          That'll give me more than enough time to sort out my own crap. I'm still not writing and right now I severely question if I'll ever write again. The confidence just isn't there anymore and I used to be able to push myself through hating my writing just because I still had fun and enjoyed doing it. I haven't had that same joy/fun in a while, thus I can't push myself through my confidence issues. My mind is still very much in a mentality that I'm wasting my time because I'll never truly be a good writer or go anywhere with it. 
          
          If I don't start writing again, then there's really no reason for me to remain on Wattpad or even continue to port my books over to Tapas. You guys have brought me so many warm fuzzies over the years and I hate that I can't get my crap together to keep sharing my writing with you, but it's just a major rut I'm stuck in and I don't know when/if I'll dig myself out considering how long its gone on at this point.
          
          If anyone wants to keep in touch then for now Wattpad or Tapas is the only way. I deleted my Twitter a couple weeks ago because the site is way too toxic for where my mental state is right now and I wasn't really using it anyway. The few people I had talked to regularly that kept me keeping it open have gotten too busy in their own lives, so there just was no point in subjecting myself to some of the crap Twitter has, especially when my head is as up and down as it is with my moods.
          
          All right, that's it. I'll probably do one more shout out before HWFU is done just to keep those who do care apprised of the situation.

Prisim

@GeorgeCloudJr At least until I figure out what I'm going to do with my writing (and if I'm still going to be writing) I'll be on Tapas and/or Wattpad. Though probably more active on Wattpad than Tapas, there just isn't much going on over at Tapas so I'm not checking it too often.

@GeorgeCloudJr I figured most people wouldn't even notice so there was no point doing a whole grand goodbye LOL I just got fed up one day and deleted it. Will probably bring it back just for comic con purposes otherwise there's just no need for me to be there anymore.

Hey your writing is awesome and i am very glad that you re posted it bcoz of pandemic .but hey just for clarification but is there a third part for draygon frost . Is it in some other platform ? have you written it ?
          I am very much eager for the next part and hope it will be soon. And once again your works are great 

Prisim

@prabanj I haven't written it yet. I'm still struggling with my confidence and desire to write so I unfortunately haven't written anything in months. Hopefully eventually but I have to get my head sorted first.

So Draygon Inferno will finish posting in 2 days. While many lockdowns are being lifted, they're being lifted slowly. As a result, I will also bring back How We Found Us to Wattpad. That will be the last one I bring back unless I decide to return full time. 
          
          I still don't know how long these books will stay back or if I will even remove them again at all. I'm doing fairly decent over at Tapas and am really close to unlocking tipping support over there after being featured back-to-back, so there is a chance I just move over there full time since it gives me a chance to earn money on my books (except for the Draygon books. If/when I finish the next book I won't leave you guys hanging. It would be cross posted) when I start writing again. But there's also a chance I never start writing again so it's all a moot point on where I go LOL
          
          So at this point, all I can say is HWFU will come back after DI finishes. After that, I'm still figuring it out. I'm so happy to hear from some of you that bringing these few books back have helped you through your own lockdowns. That was entirely the reason I brought them back during this.
          
          It has been a very rough 2020 but it seems like there is finally a light at the end of the Coronavirus tunnel.

Sorry for not getting a Power Uppers chapter reposted yesterday. I was out in a low internet area and had a hard enough time getting Draygon Inferno posted. Today I'll post 2 chapters of PU to make up for it so I'll do one in the afternoon and one later this evening, on top of the DI chapter I'm about to post.
          
          Hope these are still helping some of you through the quarantines you might be facing at the moment.

Prisim

The Power Uppers chapter repost might be really late today. My laptop took a crap and I hate trying to post chapters from my phone. I'm in the process of trying to resurrect it so as soon as I know it's fait, I'll post. Even if it means sucking it up and doing it from my phone.
