Hey, I’m moving!

I know I haven’t been at this place very long, but this was sort of an experiment. Now, I’ve got my own digs at jensako.com, otherwise known as The Mood Swings. Hope to see you there!       Advertisements

Too Stupid To Love?

If you’ve read enough romance novels, you’ve seen this particular heroine. The one who has been hurt so badly in the past by love that she will NEVER LOVE AGAIN.

Hate Winter…Can’t Write…But This Is Something
