Hey guys,
          	
          	Dropping in to say that the last few months have been incredibly emotionally and physically taxing on me and I haven't been able to really be at my desk much. As such, I haven't been able to write really anything.
          	
          	I'm going to be trying my best to bring you all new chapters for ongoing stories as soon as possible, but currently it's been hard to find the inspiration or time.
          	
          	Thank you all so much for being here, and for reading my silly little stories. I hope they can be a bright spot in your day when things are seeming kind of dark.

@themintymonster Take care of yourself, friend. You are more important than your stories (though your stories are wonderful). We'll still be here when you can write again.

Hey, I hope you're doing well in the new year. Is everything all right? Has your writing been fruitful?

themintymonster

Hey guys! Hoping you all are having a very good December!
          
          Tis the season, and since it is, I scooted my Krampus stories up to the top of the book list for a time! I'm currently stewing over another one (or two) and I'm hoping to get them done in time for Christmas! 
          There's been a lot going on at home lately that's been eating up my time, but I'll do my best to get you guys a new Krampus boyfriend before the big day passes!
          
          At any rate, I hope that everyone is doing well and staying safe!

@themintymonster I love the Krampus collection! I'm excited to see what other holiday boyfriends you're creating.

Hey guys! Dropping in to give a little update.
          
          I've made the very hard decision to mark some of my older "ongoing" stories as "completed" as I've either lost the thread from not adding to them in so long, or just have no real urge to add anything more to them.
          
          These stories will be scooted to the bottom of the story list (as usual right above the Seasonal stories) and marked as "Completed". This will not entirely exclude them from possible story updates in the future, but it will be incredibly unlikely that they'll get any.
          
          I know it's a bit of a bummer, but it's taken me quite a few months to come to this decision, and this will also open up the future for some more long-format stories in the future, as well! I'll also be able to focus more on the stories I currently still have plans for/can clearly remember the plot points I had in mind (such as The Virus and The Symbiote).
          
          A fair handful of stories will be shuffling down the list, I'm afraid, as I've had quite a lot I left "ongoing" in the hopes that I'd be able to figure out an addition.
          
          Special Note: I will say that commissioned continuations of specific "Completed" stories is still an option, as the commissioner usually has a good idea of where they'd like to go with it (as opposed to my own blank mind x-x).
          
          Thank you all so much for your support, and I hope you'll stick around and see where the journey takes us!!

@themintymonster - Dang, it do be like that.  Keep doing what u wanna do, we'll be supporting u no matter what!

As a rule of thumb, other than some of the Seasonal Story Collections (I am possibly planning to add a few more), everything below "Minty's Fanfic Archive" will be "Completed".
            
            This is just an easy way to remember the way things are organized! :)

Hi, I was just wondering who "donutholschtein" is.
          They don't have any stores, and I was wondering if you know them? Have a good day 

themintymonster

@Odontophobia That's okay, not a big deal! 
            Donut does write stories that are completely different from my own, but that's just the way of the writing world! Everybody has a different style, and theirs is more along the serious side. 
            To summarize some of their content and to assuage some possible worries, they usually write stories about anthropomorphic characters in pretty serious situations! It's different than my own fluffy feel-good stories, but nothing to be concerned about! :)

@Odontophobia sorry if that was a bit of a personal question . It's just.. you don't follow a lot of people here, and their "about" page on wattpad kind of concerns me .
            Sorry

themintymonster

@Odontophobia Yeah, they're a friend of mine who recently joined Wattpad! They haven't added anything just yet, but have plans to in the future.

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you all know that I'm going to be updating the covers of a few books that I've been a bit iffy about recently, as I've gotten better at creating nicer ones, and the old ones kind of stick out a lot.
          
          If you don't see the cover for a story or collection when you bring up my page, the cover's probably been updated! Look for the title until you get used to the change; none of my stories are going to be deleted at this time, don't worry! :)
          
          Also, I'm going to be spending a bit of time adding a few more books/stories/collections that didn't get carried over from tumblr for one reason or another, so keep an eye out for those!
          
          As always, thank you all SO MUCH for your support, and I hope you can pardon the dust as I clean up a little and add some new content!

@themintymonster Oh god I missed you so much,I've been waiting for The Symbiote for so long

Good gosh, I'd forgotten that I still have a couple longer form stories still waiting to be transferred over (like The Patriarch, which just posted in time for Halloween).
            
            There's going to be a bit of activity over the next week as I try to bring those over, including the one fanfiction I've ever written, The Venom (which is actually up now)!
            
            Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the sudden influx of stories; I'll be working on them to format them more to my usual style (some of these are pretty dang old and tumblr formatting is odd) and doing some light re-writes along the way to make better, updated versions of a few of them. :)

Hi everybody! I'm VERY SLOWLY getting some new chapters out for the long-form stories after a very long time being unable to string two sentences together.
          
          As it is, I'm focusing on The Symbiote and The Virus first, then will turn my attention toward other stories afterward. The main reason for this is these are the stories that I've had close to my heart since I began writing them, and there have been SO many comments asking for updates on them recently. As luck would have it, I'm finally able to actually be creative again, so I'm pushing out updates as I get them completed.
          
          As for afterward, if there is a long-form (non collection) story besides the above that you'd REALLY like to see an update for, please feel free to comment it here so I can scoot those up the list! 
          I'd honestly love to hear your thoughts on those stories, too, if you'd like to share! :)

@themintymonster  Honestly I will be happy with any story update. I genuinely love everything you write!!! And please don't feel pressured by update demands, update at your own pace! ❤❤❤

@JacobBiggs Thank you for your kind words and support! And I'll definitely try to get some updates going for those stories!
            
            @HetepheresRosslyn Thank you! It's really inspiring to hear that you like The Symbiote so much! Hopefully I'll be able to post another update soon!

@themintymonster thank you so much for letting us know, and please take your time! We appreciate all the beautiful writing you do for us. The Symbiote is a wonderful story I also hold close to my heart, thank you so much for that gift of a story! I am excited to read what you have in mind, you rock!

Hey, I've been trying to get some new content worked out lately, but it's slow going.
          
          As it is, I finally was able to set up the new book for The Fighter, so part two is up now! Thank you all for your patience, and I hope that everyone is being safe in this very crazy year.

Umm hey I just wanted to ask if your still gonna continue your stories??

themintymonster

@NicolekiaOliver0 It's been incredibly hard for me to put words to page, but I've been trying to get things done little by little.
            
            As it is, I'm not sure when there will be updates to most of my stories, as I simply can't seem to get things written.
            
            I absolutely do plan to continue most of the stories that are still ongoing, though. :)

Hello everybody! I just wanted to say that I am still active, just been having a very artistically-blocked latter half of the year.
          
          That said, I'm doing my absolute best to shake it off in the new year and bring you more new stories (with more new monster boyfriends) and further parts and chapters of ongoing ones!
          
          As it stands now, it might be a good idea to revisit a few of my current long format stories. Who KNOWS when they might update next, after all. *wink wink*
          
          And as always, your votes and comments are absolutely priceless to me, and have kept me going through my grey minded days. Thank you all so much for the love, and I'll see you soon!
