[Update] On Hiatus and Some Updates

Once again, we’re going to go on a hiatus at least until midterms are over with and we can once again stabilise our time. We are all high-achieving students at different stages of our education and school, family and work remain our highest priorities so we must focus on satisfying those demands before freeing our focus to work on this website. I hope we can get this website back on its feet once this rough patch is over and thank you for your continued support.

Welcome to the Best of Outlet!

American ADHD

No, we’re not going to be talking about the overdiagnosis of ADHD in Americans or the fact that social media and technology is slowly destroying the millennials. We’re going to be talking about a far older epidemic and that is America’s extraordinary ability to get distracted and also what they missed while distracted in the light of recent events.

Story Starter: Deathfriend

A voice called her name. She looked up, neck craned, searching for the source of the voice. “Here, mommy!” Her mom’s red hair came bobbing into view and her fingers loosened. The piece of paper flew away, carried away by a sudden breeze. Thinking back on it now, it seemed like Fate was taunting her. When she was little, she thought that if she hadn’t let go of that piece of paper, her mother would still be here. Her paper with her happy stick family floated away, lost forever to her grasping fingers.

[A Novella] Locked Out of Heaven

“He slowed down, tugging back a little on her hand. Adelina looked back and smiled. He smiled back, desperately holding back the emotions that threatened to burst out. It will be enough to watch her from a distance. Maybe when he’s old and bent, this one kiss would remind him that, once, he had been touched by an angel and then perhaps he might’ve done something to be proud of. But for now, he wants to prolong the moment for as long as possible. A damned soul catching a glimpse of Heaven’s gates before falling to Hell, grasping at clouds to slow his descent.”

 

So I just wrote an article and published it. Then, I clicked on the article I just published. IT WAS BLANK! And there was no way I could recover my work. So I have to rewrite it. It wasn’t a problem with my computer but WP just completely erased my post! What the heck! I searched it up and this same thing has happened to other people. So be careful guys, because even if you periodically click the save button when editing (which I did), WordPress may still delete your work.

One other thing I want to touch on is that fact that we have a new writer!!! Her name’s Ari on Outlet so look out for her stuff in the near future!

We’re still recruiting writers so if you’re interested, go on to the link in the footer of this page and click on the link that says Become a Writer for Outlet!

So… I decided to post my story after all. First chapter is going up today on another site that I’m made as a “subsite” of sorts. It’s called Outlet for Stories. I will post there on an irregular schedule but if you’re in the mood for stories, head on over there. There’s not going to be an official post today due to the fact that the scheduled post was supposed to be posted by Nemo today but due to technical issues, it is not available so we’ll just have to post this instead.

Here is the link to the Outlet for Stories: https://outletforstories.wordpress.com/

We are also still recruiting writers so we would appreciate it if you would just head on to here and sign up. 😉 Sorry for the missing post but I hope you enjoy the narrative I’m about to unfold. Locked Out of Heaven is officially launched!!

I’m Lieutenant and thank you for reading.
