Well, it took me a month of non-stop work but I finally did it, you guys! SHADRACH is OFFICIALLY finished - for the second time! 
          
          Now I can finally return to working on Cascadia, which I'm sure you've all been jonesing for. If you let me sit back and drink some fine wine for one night, I promise I'll churn out some good content for you that will be out in the near future (this weekend, perhaps). 
          
          Thank you so much for your patience!

Minuscule update: 23 out of 37 chapters of Shadrach are now rewritten/edited! I've literally devoted all of my time and effort to this new version of the book and I hope it'll pay off. Also, I have arthiritis at age twenty-two.

So sorry about the lack of updates on Cascadia! I'm still rewriting Shadrach and it's taking up every waking minute of my spare time. ALSO! Edits to Shadrach's pacing and structure forced me to delete, like, ten chapters, meaning I lost, like, 10,000 reads and I-don't-know-how-many votes and comments. Oh, well. Hopefully, this overhaul will finally launch me to the forefront of Wattpad's collective consciousness. 
          
          Happy reading!

Returning after a depressive episode is always awkward, but she's back and writing again, you guys! 
          
          A couple of life updates: I've decided to take a few extra classes this semester and graduate in June, that way I can finally give an official EDUCATED account of 1980s America. I was also granted funding for an independent research project where I'll be examining cultural and political shifts in the American middle class through 70s and 80s sitcoms. Right now I'm going through every single episode of Family Ties and transcribing everything Michael J. Fox ever said as Alex P. Keaton. 
          
          This, of course, means I'll be absolutely swamped these next few months. Hopefully, writing will help me blow off some steam from time to time. Right now, I'm finishing off chapter 4 of Cascadia, which should be out soon…

Sorry, everyone. I'm too depressed to write or do anything.

Hi! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for writing Shadrach. I really enjoyed it. Hope you’re doing OK.

@melichor hey, it's alright. Everything will fall back into where it belongs. Try to watch your thoughts and focus on keeping yourself surrounded and busy. It's only for a little while.

I've been so disillusioned with my writing and debating whether or not to pack it all up and leave Wattpad for good I didn't notice Shadrach hit 70,000 reads! Thanks so much to everyone who tuned in!
