World-building

This was originally slotted as another in the #marywrites series, but given how much I love world-building in general, I thought I’d just mic drop discussion it.

Favorite Romance Tropes

There’s just so many. I’m going to try to limit it to my top five, which, like, don’t quote me on this later saying that these are my top five because there’s always something new that I haven’t realized that I love, or something that I’ve forgotten about.
