Hello, friends!
          	
          	I’m sorry, but there will be no update today, and let me explain why…
          	
          	I have been going through a terrible time at my full-time job and as a result, my emotional and physical health has been suffering. After talking with my loved ones, I made the difficult decision to leave my job despite the effect it will have on my finances because I have been working myself to death while constantly being dehumanized by management. Because today is my last day at work, I am putting my all into it to make sure that all my projects are finished to the best of my abilities. 
          	
          	Friends, don’t ever let anyone make you feel less than. Don’t ever accept abuse and gaslighting no matter who it’s from. You do not owe your kindness to someone who treats you poorly! 
          	
          	I’ve felt trapped in a place with no light for months now, and it was almost like all the good parts of me were slowly being burnt away. Being able to read everyone’s comments on my stories about how much they enjoyed it or kind words about who I am as a person have been the best medicine. So, thank you, everyone, for your understanding and your magic, because every word was a medicine. (´。• ᵕ •。`) ♡
          	
          	I’ll be back with updates soon. I love you!
          	
          	xo, Spencer

@KinderKari After being free for a few days now, I already feel like I am human again. Thank you for always being ready with a kind word and positive thought. You are the best! ♡

I hope that you will feel much better in a few days time. I wish for you to find that light and for you to not worry too much as it's not healthy. I do believe that everything will fall into place and that you will be truly happy.  Do not stress about updating, I understand how life can be busy and it's hard to balance everything out. Take care my dear. All the best ♥️

@spencerhoshino Don’t worry about the update. I’m sure all your readers want you to relax and rest. I’m glad you left the place that doesn’t even treat you like human. I know that must have been a real difficult decision to make considering the effects it will have on your finances. Take care of your physical and mental health!!! Your readers will all be waiting for your return!!!!! ❤️❤️

@somanynames17 Thank you, imouto (little sister)! (っ˘з(˘⌣˘ ) ♡ I am so appreciative of your unwavering support and patience with me. It was a really difficult decision to make, but after falling deeper and deeper into the hole with no light, I felt like I had to choose to put myself first otherwise there would be nothing good left of me. T^T

Just quick message: 
          
          I'm so sorry I won't be updating Paper Wings today. I've been sick all week and I hoped to be well enough to finish writing the chapter to post today, but I'm not. T^T Thank you for your understanding! 
          
          xo, Spencer

I hope you feel better soon, Spencer. Don't worry about posting a chapter on your scheduled day. Your health is more important. Thank you for updating us and I wish you a quick recovery c:

@somanynames17 Thank you so much! T^T I'm actually having to delay the update again because I've been sick all week. I was hoping to be well enough to finish writing the chapter to post today but I'm still not better. u_u

Helloooo! 
          
          I hope you're all doing well. (*^^*)♡ I want to talk about a couple things...
          
          There will be no update for Paper Wings this week. (Sorry! There's a lot going on this week but I promise to update next week.) If you read the last update (Chapter 24), please let me know what you think. There were parts that made me laugh out loud as I wrote it. Hehe! <( ̄︶ ̄)> *disproportionately proud of myself for making myself laugh*  
          
          While you wait for the next update of Paper Wings, may I encourage you to re-read Paper Wishes on Tapas? 
          
          https://tapas.io/series/paperwishes
          
          Paper Wishes on Tapas is different from what is available on Wattpad, and although you have to unlock chapters by purchasing keys, you can earn coins to purchase keys for FREE by watching ads! (╯✧▽✧)╯ If you don't want to re-read Paper Wishes (it's fine... ╥ω╥) on Tapas, there is also a neat tipping feature where you can use your free fake money to tip me real money, which keeps me alive. Hehe. \(^▽^)/
          
          Also, as you all may know, my best friend @jeepersgigi has a Thunderclap campaign going. The campaign just hit 50 supporters! We need 50 more supporters before the end of the campaign, which is in 8 days. If you have a Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr account and would be willing to support her campaign, we would really appreciate it! ♡♡♡

          That's it for now! I love you guys! ( ´ ∀ `)ノ~ ♡

Hello, friends!! ♡\( ̄▽ ̄)/♡
          
          You may have noticed that I've been updating Paper Wings again! I'm doing my best to keep up with writing so that I can continue to update regularly. Paper Wings has gone back to its regularly scheduled Thursday posts. Thank you to everyone who has patiently waited for me to continue. Reading everyone's comments has been such a magical experience. I don't feel like I tell you all I love and appreciate you enough, so here it is: I love you all & appreciate you so much! Thank you for always supporting me & my works. (*^^*)♡
          
          Recently, Wattpad updated their Featured list, which means that, sadly, Paper Wishes is no longer featured. But, I'm happy that other writers will have the chance to share their works with a wider audience! Because my story was featured, I was able to "meet" many of you and that has been a gift in itself. Because you are all a part of my Wattpad family and the Realm of Magical Girls, it makes me feel less lonely. Thank you for being by my side, and congratulations if your story is now on the Featured list! 
          
          Lately, I've been receiving beautiful fanart, which I've shared on Instagram & on my website. I've included the artists' Wattpad username in the gallery on my site, so if you really like their artwork, please let them know! A kind word goes a long way. 	♡( ◡‿◡ )

          Finally, my ride-or-die best friend 5ever @jeepersgigi started a Thunderclap campaign, in hopes of being considered for the role of Black Cat in the upcoming film Silver and Black. We would both be very grateful to anyone who was willing to support her campaign. It costs nothing to support--all you need to do is agree to let Thunderclap post on your behalf to either your FB, Twitter, or Tumblr! The idea is to get the message to go viral.

          That's my update for now! I love you! Bye! ヾ(*'▽'*)
