I think I'm a fairly patient person in most aspects of my life, but one thing I really can't stand is cliffhangers. I hate watching/reading works in progress and I dislike being left in the lurch by any plot. I'm the kind of person that, if a TV show has a two-parter, I'll save up both parts to watch at the same time.

Well, I may have only written a paragraph yesterday, but it got me through my little block I had in my Vampire YA, so I'm over the hump :D.
