I'm sorry for the big gap between updates again, it's been exhausting couple of weeks mostly because we're buying a house, and buying a house apparently isn't an easy thing, and we've had to tackle several surprise problems =')
          	
          	Examples
          	We had no idea that the type of loan we got could not be used to buy the plot around the house so we had to come up with a lot of money so we could buy the plot first (the bank refused to give us the loan for the house before we had the money for the plot).
          	
          	The kitchen was in the middle of renovation when we bought the house, and while the seller was going to finish it, we learned the floor needs to be replaced (no insulation, bad condition, but this is mostly just comfort/aesthetic issue) so we asked the seller to not continue with the renovation so we can do the floor first because it will be cheaper to do now, so we needed even more money and start finding us a floor. 
          	
          	I've read contracts and guides and spent hours searching for info and trying to understand bank jargon and and and...
          	
          	I'm also still suffering from the neck pain I may have mentioned last year and it has gotten a lot worse again ='( I can look to my side, but not over my shoulder because of the pain. I'm also suffering from a constant headache because of it (I can't touch my forehead because the muscles/tendons in that area are in so much pain I feel like throwing up if I do). It also sometimes (like now) spreads to my tendons in my shoulder (can't touch them at all, much pain) which causes me a lot of nerve pain in my entire right arm all the way to my fingers.
          	
          	Basically the only way I can be completely pain free is lying in my bed doing nothing, and even that requires pain gel and meds.
          	
          	So, fun times =') If anyone sees my mental health somewhere, please let me know.
          	
          	At least I have the entire May off from work so I'll have more time to write, and hopefully enough time to let my neck heal, because it is clearly caused by my work (don't stare down, kids).

@dollygrand oh no! D: Your overall health is very important, so during May you should definitely focus on healing, mentally and physically, before you focus on stories! We care more about your health and well-being than we do the content you create! Take care☆

@dollygrand Dang, that's a lot, from moving into a house that needs renovations to nerve pain. It will all work out eventually. Take care of yourself.

Deary me I'm nervous to write this chapter of Two Sides of the Moon =')
          
          I've spent 10 hours today trying to write it and I have like 1/3 ready because I keep stalling because there's a sentence I'm terrified to write because then that's it, the final showtime and hooooo boy I am not ready for this =')

StephenTaylor2

@dollygrand 
            I know you will do what is right. 
            You can write the sentence, who says you have to publish it. 
            Looking forward to reading the next chapter.

Dolly, do you have a date for the next episode of Two Sides of the Moon?

@contr123 Thank you! Two Sides of The Moon is one of those books I really need to concentrate hard or it starts falling apart so I usually take a break from that one until I can focus again =)

@dollygrand Thank you very much for answering, it excites me every time you do it, I just wanted to know if I had an approximate but don't stress too much about it. In the end, a slow but wonderful job is better and not a fast and messy one. Thank you so much for making my day with your stories.

Acceptance is now complete! 
          
          This story started as a short novelette of 9-10 chapters, but you know me, something happened along the way and I accidentally added 40 more chapters to it. But it is complete! 
          
          If you haven't read it yet, I wish you'll give it a go :3 
          
          If you have read it, would you like to help me convince the above group why they should give it a go :3
          
          Here's the short description of the story: 
          "After getting away from his cruel father's tyranny, Randall has to learn how to live again and accept the person he was meant to be - with a little help of certain someone..."
          
          And here's the link: 
          https://www.wattpad.com/story/291632574-acceptance
          
          Happy reading!
          
          (I swear, the story does exist, that link is just glitching sometimes -.- If this happens to you, you can find the story on my profile, but click the "read" button, not the cover, that should work)

Hi Dolly,
          
          I’m trying to read Bound for Life (not I’m sure if that name is accurate) on Patreon but I can’t for some reason. Do you have Radish or? I need to read it. I can’t wait anymore

@omgitsarese huh that's odd =( Have you tried it on browser instead of app?

These fake accounts are claiming that your account is in violation and that to prevent from losing your account, you have to enter a link that apparently leads you to fill out your details, DO NOT CLICK THAT LINK, no matter how scary the claim seems to be!
