I've just done something completely crazy and have decided to rewrite Dark Star, but in 1st person instead of 3rd.
          	
          	I must be insane.
          	
          	Oh wait...
          	
          	I'm a writer. Of course I'm slightly insane.

There will be no #TheDemonEmpress or #DarkStar updates this week. I've been super busy at work and now I'm going away this weekend. I'm still writing, but I haven't written enough for a chapter for either book. Apologies, but they are coming!

I have decided to re-write The Demon Empress.  No new chapters will be written until I re-write the existing chapters. I was having a hard time pushing through this wall I seem to have hit, so I'm trying another approach to get me to continue this story.

To be honest, I'm not sure that there will be a TDE update this week. I haven't written a new chapter yet and I'm all out of pre-written ones.
          
          Sorry to all those who are actually reading it. But I'm super busy and I haven't been in the best mood lately. I can't write anything good right now, and I refuse to post something that I'm not happy with.

Chapter 11 of TDE is published again, but it's private, which means you have to follow me to read it.

Chapter 11 of TDE has been unpublished temporarily. I want to make it private but I can't from mobile and I'm not going to be able to get to a computer anytime soon.
          
          It shouldn't matter much because it will not be in the next draft anyway, and I may rewrite the Wattpad version to exclude it too.
          
          We'll have to wait and see.

The next chapter of TDE will be posted later than usual. Like I said in the last chapter, my hours at work have changed. No one has given me any opinions on their preferred day for updates (it can't be Wednesday anymore) so I'm just going to have to make an executive decision on that. After the next chapter is uploaded, the schedule will change to Tuesday.

I'm going to be honest here: I'm really struggling to find the motivation to keep writing The Demon Empress. I think a major part of that is to do with the fact that I'm uploading it to Wattpad.
          
          I used to love Wattpad, but lately I've been thinking of no longer posting any of my works up here. It's so disheartening to share hours of hard work with everyone, only for no one to notice. Don't get me wrong, I am so thankful for the loyal readers I have, and those who have commented and given me feedback. Seriously, I love you guys. But I don't think Wattpad is the best place for me to be sharing my writing.
          
          It's not the first time I have felt this way. If you're a long time follower of my account, you'll know that I started writing and sharing  a few other books on here: The Second Venefica & Crystal White. I was so excited and pumped to write those books...until I started sharing them on Wattpad.
          
          If you're a writer, you'll know how heartbreaking it is when you spend hours putting effort into a story and not getting any response. It makes me feel less of a writer and I lose the desire to continue writing.
          
          Right now I'm not removing The Demon Empress, but it is something I am considering. Please, don't take this as a threat. I'm going to be posting it on Worldsmyths in a minute, and I will continue updating there, so if I take it off Wattpad you will still be able to read it if you really want to. If not, that's totally fine.
          
          Sorry for ranting. I just had to get that off my chest.
          
          Cheers,
          Ashleigh
