Experiment 37 is now posted. It is a direct sequel to Experiment 36 even though I tried to write it as another stand-alone story.

Once again I intended it to be fairly light-hearted and not to be taken too seriously, though I found that I couldn't help myself and ended up inserting some quite tender moments.

I've said it before, I tend to write about broken people. They react differently and that makes them interesting. I'm not trying to make fun of people who have those sorts of issues. Ultimately, I find myself in awe of Sally's parents because they have built a life and a family despite their issues.

I guess another theme within my writing is the importance of family, regardless of how functional or otherwise the family is. Sally is broken too, in her own way, and her family is vital to her. But she needs more than they can give so she has to find that extra support outside of her immediate family. That is not uncommon.
