[heading]Keeping It Real[/heading]
I love lemons and love scenes. However, I have a serious love/hate relationship with writing sex. Every now and then, I write it for fun or as a personal challenge to stretch my limits. But most of the time, I consider it a valuable tool to help show the progression of a couple’s relationship.

[heading]The Right Amount of Spice[/heading]
Have you ever gone to a restaurant extremely excited for the meal you ordered, only to be disappointed when it’s too bland? How about when it’s too spicy?
