hi. i’m bored lol. so since no one has done this before, I decided to make a list of useful websites. these are for everyone (writers, artists, readers, editors ect…)

I hope you like it lol :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :heart:


Tags, bumps and reshares are highly appreciated! The more support this list will get, the more people will see it! :honey_pot: :teddy_bear:

Since this community is all about helping each other, I’m really glad if I helped anyone passing by. :innocent:

If you have a website in mind, please share it with us! The more the merrier! I’ll be sure to add it on the list. :cowboy_hat_face:


By the way, this is not official by the episode team. I just gathered up some sites and wrote them down. :herb: :two_hearts: :cloud:
