I didn't expect an overwhelming response to my latest story (Kristiana), but although the score is very respectable, I've had very little feedback on it. Was it that boring? I'm beginning to think so. I'm also beginning to think my stories are becoming a bit predictable. I may change the names of the characters and the locations of the action(?), but a romance story is a romance story and I've fallen into a repeating format that I've got to shake myself from. The Contractor was an attempt at just that. Time for a rethink about which direction I should travel.
