Hey there, heatmates! Hope you survived the rom-com experience. How was it? It was a first for me, and I didn't find it the most 'exciting' genre, especially with the incredible shrinking wordcount.
Looking forward to reading your work later this week, if you post. And then, of course, reading as many of the others as possible.

Maaaan romance is so not my thing :/ I think I usually have romantic elements in stories, but not like AS the story Tongue I definitely had issues with word count, some of what I wanted to include just wouldn’t fit. So idk, it’s done, it’s in, and I’m super keen to see what everyone else came up with!!
