Waiting, waiting waiting. That's me at the moment. I open my email with half-dread, half-longing. Is it possible that I could win the December contest? I would love to and I thought the story was strong. The downside is that I don't have many friends or family to vote for me... and it was down the bottom of the list so it may not have got too many votes.
It's like the build up of sexual tension. Usually you get to breaking point and then... orgasm. And that makes it all worthwhile!! But what if the sex is bad? What if you have to fake the orgasm? Was the sexual tension worth the effort then?
