    Your blog is absolutely crazy, but I love it!!! Thanks for the visit. I added a bit more of my Until Now story, but I think it's not as good as the first. Still, I've kept that one and may rework it later. Feel free to let me know what you think. Good or bad!

    Hi Joy,

    Thank you!!! I'm glad that you stopped by for a visit. I will definitely read the addition to the Until Now story. Just getting something down on paper is important. Revising is for later. Will let you know. Keep going!
