I’ll Throw A Party For You

4,400 subscribers! Can you believe I mistakenly wrote 3,400? Jeyna, you disappoint me. Rest assured, I will never again forget the number of people who are showing their support. That is just unacceptable.

So, to all 4,400+ subscribers, thank you so much for your subscription!

“But er, it’s no big deal. You don’t have to thank me,” you say.

You’re wrong. I have to thank you because you’ve read my stories and you’re hoping to come back! That deserves a thank you 🙂 In fact, if I can give you more than a thank you, I would. One day, when I get ‘there’ I’ll have a party just for my blog subscribers. You guys believed in me before anyone else did, and I appreciate that a lot. Thank you! And please make sure to demand an invitation to that party when that day comes 🙂

Now, since I don’t want to end the post right here, I’m going to write about two random things:

#1 Break The Silence
Today’s WordPress blog prompt: when was the last time you really wanted (or needed) to say something, but kept quiet? Write a post about what you should’ve said.

Well, my answer is simple. Someone spelled ‘wander’ as ‘wonder’ and I felt like I had to correct this person. But I did not do so, because I didn’t want to come off as a grammar Nazi. After all, this person was a stranger and new on the blogosphere. It would not be nice to point out a common mistake just because I felt like I had to.

However, I should’ve said, “There’s beauty in both wondering and wandering.” It’s not an obvious hint, but it sounds nice.

#2 Raindrops
My latest novella is free to download for 4 more days, so be sure to get your e-book copy now!

Ok, all random things covered? Great! I can end my post now.

Thank you all once again for your subscription and readership. Remember, there will be a party 🙂 But until then, have a great week!

P.S Only 5 more days till the release of The Battle For Oz: Exitium and I’m excited. I hope you are too 🙂

(*Current blog post schedule: A post every Thursday alternating between an original short story and a Harry Potter fan fic novel.)

3500 & A Captive’s Choice

3500 and a captives choice

Oh my, what do we have here, another thank you post? Yes, yes, another one.

Like its predecessors, I just wanna say a big thank you to all 3,500 subscribers on my blog. Both old and new, I really, really, really appreciate your support by simply following and reading my posts. You guys give me a little space on the Internet that I can be proud of. Without any of you… I will eventually cease to exist on the blogosphere and the World Wide Web. Gasps*

You may not know it, but your presence and words help boost my confidence on days that I feel unskilled or untalented. Knowing that, ‘hey, people do read my stuff and are entertained or touched by them,’ helps me keep my posting schedule because I know people are looking forward to my stories. I’m just blessed to have you guys 🙂 So thank you, oh so much!

Anyway, for a little update: I will not be posting a story next Thursday because I would be celebrating Chinese New Year. As much as I want to, I’ll probably be internet-less and out for the day. So, I apologize in advance.

Moving on, I’ve decided to accompany this post with another blog prompt! I find that blog prompts really gives me a chance to show who I am without being boring. And since today’s WordPress prompt is not out yet (at the very moment I’m typing this), I’ve decided to do one that caught my attention.

You’ve been kidnapped and given a choice: would you rather be stranded on an island, dropped into an unknown forest, or locked in a strange building?

I did some thinking and I finally decided on ‘locked in a strange building’.

My logic is this, if I’m on an island I would probably die waiting for a ship to come to my rescue, if I’m in an unknown forest it would only be a matter of time before a bear eats me, but if I’m locked in a strange building I might just find a way out. That is if it’s a building that did not come out of a Stephen King novel.

Now I know what you’re thinking, there is a chance that the strange building is in the middle of nowhere. But… I could probably find something useful in it to help me find civilization once I escape. I think there’s more hope with that choice than the rest.

So what does that say about me? I don’t know. It’s an honest answer though 🙂

Which would you pick? Let me know your choice in the comments below, I would love to hear your rationale on it too!

Well, that is about it for this post. Thank you again for your support, and to those celebrating Chinese New Year, xin nian kuai le!
