The Subtle Balance: Part 1, The Basic Elements of Crafting Fiction

No, I haven't, Tiffany! Sorry if it looks that way. I've just been dealing with some things. RFA hasn't been where my creativity is here lately. And on top of that, I've been going through some personal stuff lately. And because of which I've been spending most of my creative energy on music which tends to help me through things more. I'll try and make sure and post some new chapters soon. I'll need to do some editing first though.

But some things just happen and some characters just demand to be written. And Jackie demanded to be a bigger player in the series.
