Mandrake’s scribblings: …. Okay… This mandrake may have underestimated the task that is presented in front of it. Over a week over due! This mandrake sincerely apologizes! This mandrake has not anticipate so many things to take over its time and have grossly underestimated the calamity called the writer’s block!. Well, chapter 10 is finally out and it is a doosy. This mandrake had put the title as “The Battle’s Climax” and seem to have put itself into a corner. The scenes were not climaxy, so this mandrake had suffered the writer’s block for a while. But fear not! This mandrake has done a lot of fragmented writing and has written summarized content for over 10 random chapters! In fact, chapter 11 is halfway complete due to this fragmented writing! Fwoo fwoo! Maybe this chapter will be faster and get the series back on schedule? This mandrake certainly hopes so! Enjoy chapter 10!

Mandrake’s scribbling: Uuuu… This chapter is finally complete. This mandrake is exhausted. Hmm? Update on this mandrake? Here.
This mandrake found a site! Web & Light Novel Updates
It lists the links of all of this mandrake’s R.A.M. chapters on RoyalRoadL!
Apparently this is a new site that lists links to light novel across the web. Most of its links are taken from NovelUpdates and other weblistings but this site features original works in English! NovelUpdates only feature updates for translations so this is an opportunity for this mandrake!
This mandrake had a chat with the site admin and had the links from this site featured as well!
So please check this mandrake’s R.A.M. listing page!
Chapter 8 is on final proofread phase! It will be out shortly!
Hmm? This mandrake’s life update? Well, When the opportunity presented itself, this mandrake went running. And hit a brick wall. Now this mandrake have to climb the wall with a spoon. Hard effort curve is hard.
Mandrake’s scribblings: UUUUUUUUAAAAAAAAAAH!
THIS CHAPTER IS A BEAST! At over 4200 words, this is the longest chapter this mandrake has ever written!
This mandrake apologizes once again for its late post. Details about it can be explained here. This mandrake hopes you understand.
Now, setting things aside, enjoy this chapter!
…. Hmm? Woah!
This mandrake got in! R.A.M. got accepted into Webfictionguide!
This is amazing! This mandrake hope its story will get more traction. It will still be a tough climb…
On the other hand, Wattpad is not looking good. In fact, it looks even more shady. This mandrake had come across many attempts of plagiarism of other people’s works. The users will post a translated chapter copied from the translator’s site as their own. Their petty attempt is weak willed though, as they stop updating after a few chapters when the view numbers are bad. There are some that are pretty famous but all of these makes this mandrake frown. No link to real author’s site or translator’s site! But especially the author’s!
However, life is very unexpected.
This mandrake has missed a release on 24th June, Saturday last week. This mandrake humbly apologizes. The reason for the delay is… The chapter is not ready yet… The draft is done but this mandrake have to do some serious editing and rephrasing before it is acceptable for readers to read. This mandrake apologizes for this mishap.
That’s not all the bad news though… This mandrake has come across a career opportunity that is life changing for it. However, this opportunity have an effort curve, much like a learning curve but much, much bigger. Because this mandrake will focus on this opportunity, less focus is saved for R.A.M. It is a hard decision, but one this mandrake must make. This mandrake will not put up a hiatus but rather chapter releases will be less frequent than the usual weekly.
But it’s not all bad. In order to cope with its busy schedule, this mandrake have decided to do some fragmented writing. This mandrake will write down drafts of random parts of the story whenever this mandrake can. This mandrake will let the story clutter in a chronological order and would be able to edit and rephrase it when it come across it instead of writing a draft and edit and rephrase it from the start. This will allow this mandrake to write down drafts in between breaks of its struggles with this life changing opportunity.
This mandrake apologize again for the inconvenience and hope for the readers to come by again.
This mandrake is not sure how to put this.
It posted its treasured story on another site.
Goodness… This time the site is Wattpad.
This mandrake’s first impression of the site. Not good.
The user interface is terrible. The mandrake find it hard to navigate.
The most worrying thing, this mandrake’s story title is too unique. The periods to emphasize the title’s ‘acronymness’ makes it hard to be found by Wattpad search engine. This mandrake tries to search its story, but it could not find it anywhere.
Here is the story on Wattpad. Chapters will lag behind like RoyalRoadL.
This mandrake hopes the site have good policy on removing works if mandrake wishes to pull story from the site…
Next chapter (7) will be on Saturday. The embers of conflict will spark anew!
