Just realized I'm going to have to write 6,000 words a week (at least) in order for "Fallen King" to be completed before the Watty's submission deadline. It's possible, but this is going to be hard, yet interesting. Therefore, "Fallen King" should get around three chapters posted per week. Chapter Two is finished and edited, but I'll wait until Chapter Three is done before posting it.

Hey, everyone. Yes, I’ve started a new story because this idea has been pestering me. It’s different from what I usually write, but I think you’ll like it if you enjoyed “Cursed by the Bite” or like superhero/power elements.
          
          I already have two chapters written and I’m working on the third. I’m going to try to stay a few chapters ahead in order to give you all weekly updates. The second chapter will be posted a week from today.
          
          If you read it, I hope you enjoy!

Does anybody else have a weird play button in the bottom left corner of your computer screen? What is it? Does anybody know?

@Freedom_1945 It’s some kind of audio thing, but I have no idea what it’s for. When I click on it, it says “processing request” or something. Idk now because the button has disappeared. It’s not on there every time. It’s weird. Also, it looks like the forums have disappeared. They may be trying something new.

I saw some other guy ask this same thing. He says it’s a listen to this story button so maybe it’s audio? Idk.

I decided to do a short FlipaClip animation based on “Cursed by the Bite.” I may do more with it at some point, but it’d be cool if y’all checked it out and let me know what you think. It’s only 5 seconds long. I definitely need some practice, but it’s a start.

I’m cracking up. I’m using a text-to-speech program to listen for any mistakes with my work.
          
          It won’t say “prickling.” 
          
          It literally spells out the first part of it, then adds the -ling. It’s “P-R-I-C-K-ling.” I guess it thinks it’s a defamatory words XD.

@EmiHinOfficial It definitely shocked me lol. I thought maybe I spelled it wrong, but I didn’t.

My county just had its first COVID-19 related death. People here aren’t taking this pandemic seriously. Please, everyone, take the precautions. Masks aren’t for your protection, they’re to protect others (unless you have a N-95 compatible mask). 
          
          Please, as someone who is part of the minority at risk, take the precautions. Wear a mask, wash your hands, social distance, wipe down everything you bought at the store, etc.
          
          People here where I live simply don’t care about others. It’s sad. Be better and protect your neighbors, unlike the immoral people here.
          
          Stay safe out there, everyone.

@EmiHinOfficial Thank you. Prayers for you and your family as well! People truly don’t understand how it feels to be immunocompromised or to have a loved one that falls in the “minority” this virus harms. Stay safe out there, please!

@RenegadeDrummer that is terrible and prayers to you as well!! I am from a very small town Indiana (its about 3 hours away from Indianapolis) and we've had almost 20 cases. My brother was born prematurely, has cerebral palsey, sensory disorder, and maybe autism plus his immune system isn't the best either so it's a scary thing for us!! Prayers to you and your family!!

Hey, how did you get so much recognition for your book Cursed by the Bite? I'm trying to learn how to get my books recognized

RenegadeDrummer

@Decoris_Unum You have to use the main website and not the app to access the forums. It’s best to do that on a computer. You’ll see a tab at the top with the home tab, where you start a new story, etc. that will say “Community”. Underneath that should be the forums.

@Decoris_Unum Wow! Okay. That's a lot to take in. Where can I find the community forums?

RenegadeDrummer

@Decoris_Unum But, if you don’t do a contest, then the next best thing is to focus on frequent updates. You can also head over to the community forums here on Wattpad, talk to some other Wattpaders, and there’s even a place where you can pitch your book to others.

Had my first vocal cord injection after going 17 months with no voice and difficulty breathing and swallowing. So far, so good. I have to take it easy for a while, so expect updates.

I deactivated my Facebook account. I’ll shortly be deleting Twitter. I’m staying on Wattpad. I may actually get some writing accomplished now. There’s just too much negativity in the world right now.
