Writing Roundup – 2015

2015 has been an interesting year, and at times it has been hard to try and write something for this blog. However, it’s also been a year where I’ve tried to expand what I’ve written, both for those stories that I’ve posted and those that have remained on my hard drive.

So here are all the stories that I’ve written this year, in alphabetical order. Hope you all enjoy them, and I wish all of my followers a very happy holidays and a great new year! I always love seeing new likes on my stories, it makes writing them even more worthwhile! So thank you to you all who read and like my work, without you I wouldn’t still be here writing!
