Still off the coffee. Well, the caffeinated kind, anyway.

I am one sex scene away from a finished story. I had a protracted battle with a pair of conversations, but they fell before me and my editing pen of death this morning. Now I must put the frosting on the fannish cupcake. Maybe with sprinkles. This paragraph needs more metaphors. How about a weather one?

And inspirational.
