Hello everyone!

I hope the world not ending worked out well for you. It did for me. A lot of you have expressed an interest in more Balance posts. I sat down, started writing and it flowed very well. Almost like the story was already written in my head, ready to spill from my clacking fingers.

So, expect a new Balance instalment this Friday. My sister, Alana, has already edited it and after a few tweaks it will be ready. I will be posting bi-weekly this time. Every week was causing me some stress.

So, please share, like, follow and encourage others to do the same. I’ve enjoyed watching the site grow and interacting with all of you who like the story.
