Award time || Going “Award-Free” announcement ||

Hey Guys, How are you all?? Long time No see !!!!

The last month was little bit gloomy for me mental health wise and I was not in my best place, so as a result I have only written a single new post, that’s right only one!!! I am trying to get back in business though!!!! Let’s hope for the best ❀❀

Also I have decided to stop doing award post from here on, this is a huge decision as these awards post were like a savior for me and my stats whenever I experienced writer’s block and I couldn’t write any new story or posts but the thing is these post take more efforts than any other posts and most people generally don’t read it…. so all these efforts just go in vain….that’s why I came to this conclusion to not do award posts anymore…. I am thankful to everyone who have nominated me till now…. I am so grateful πŸ™πŸ’›
