Updates - Story Snippet, New Muse And Story Playlist

Something To Tempt You - A Snippet From Broken Promises

It goes without saying that the following is a ROUGH draft *giggles* but I really wanted to share what I've been working on. Hopefully you'll enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it!

When I signed up for NaNoWriMo last year, it required a really big commitment and effort - 50,000 words in 30 days. With a muse that likes to hide, I needed something to coax her out so I created my Broken Promises playlist.
