THERE IS FIVE DAYS LEFT UNTIL THE CHALLENGE IS OVER. ARE YOU ENJOYING IT? Too much? I am feeling so many mixed emotions right now. Im excited I'm scared, I'm worried, it's intense. Which is good as I am writing about Emotional Intimacy today! Let's get started;

I do enjoy writing short scenes. I'm thinking about doing some short stories eventually (obviously they will be longer). If you'd like to see any of them let me know in the comments.
