As we inch closer to the end, I am curious about how this story will come together. I am always a tad nervous when I go back to a character after a break. But it’s always great to embrace that nervousness and work with it. Lets see what experiences this schedule brings with it ! 😊. Afterall, the hills always inspire magic.”
