  22. Hmm, I might need to refer back to this. I've really hit a blogging wall and have just been writing by rote, unsure if it's something I even want to recover from.

    BTW, off-topic, I am so behind that I just finally got around to reading your review of Incendiary Girls. I'm so glad you loved it as much as I imagined you would!!
