I will admit, I never used the Wattpad forums very much -- but I can imagine a lot of you probably did! How are you doing now? What do you miss the most? 
          	
          	If you're looking for a different place to hang out and chat with other writers, I do have a Discord set up. We're quite a mixed group, with members from many different countries and ages, and although there's a bit of a horror slant to the community, we're welcome to all. 
          	
          	This invite is good for one week: https://discord.gg/dTpedcn

Hey all! 
          
          I've been working on this for a little bit now and am happy to announce: I now have my own Discord server, and you're all welcome to join! https://discord.gg/AKDzsEP
          
          I'd like to imagine this server as an ongoing writer's retreat -- a place of discussion, inspiration and accountability. Features include: 
          
          - Daily discussion prompt
          - Writing sprints and challenges 
          - A place to promote your work, solicit feedback, and ask for writing help 
          
          As the server grows, I'm toying with the idea of hosting some exclusive workshops, AMA's, and that sort of thing. 
          
          Anyway, you're welcome to join!

Hey Friends & Followers! I had a thought. 
          
          With Camp Nanowrimo around the corner, and a lot of us struggling to stay motivated with all of the craziness going on in the world, not to mention the difficulty in meeting up with writer's groups and such right now -- I was thinking of doing some "virtual write-ins" where I'd hop online and stream my writing process for an hour -- say, two 25-minute sprints with a 10-minute Q&A/chatting session in between. I could stream on Twitch or in Discord. But you could tune in, watch me work, or write along at the same time and have a bit of company.
          
          What do you think? Sound fun? Not fun? Would you be interested? Is there a specific time of day that would be best for you? 
          
          I'm looking at maybe doing it from 11am-12pm Mountain Time and/or 6-7pm Mountain Time since those fit well with my work schedule.
          
          Idk, I'm not committed just yet, but I'm bouncing around some ideas.

Wow your story is gonna be made into movie, that's like seeing your dream in reality.
          Would it be possible for you to check out my Story "What is Time - Achyut the Jatasya". I've just started writing it and would love to have a feedback on its chapter 1 scene 1.

I am proud to write on a platform that promotes diversity and raising disenfranchised voices. 
          
          I hope everyone of my followers is staying safe right now. We are living in incredibly stressful and unprecedented times. But, to quote one of my favorite musicals, even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise. 
          
          If you’re a Black or POC author, let me know so I can add you to my new reading list and help to raise your voice! My platform is small, but it’s here for you today.

@TLBodine I'm black and mostly write fantasy and horror. Thank you so much for reaching out to black/poc writers during this difficult time! It really means a lot for us.

@_Archangels__ Nonsense! You deserve a seat at the table. You're putting your words out there and practicing your craft and you deserve to be spotlighted for that like anybody else :)

@TLBodine I am POC but my story is not as good to be added in your reading list.
