As you may or may not know, recently I’ve been in something of a drama slump, preferring to watch Youtube videos and movies over dramas. Since I usually get ideas for what I want to write about from what I’m watching, well, right now I have little inspiration. So I thought it might be a good idea to do some polling and ask you, my readers, to pick out what I should watch in November? To help you, I’ve included images and synopses. Hopefully, the two polls work. If not, I’ll have to redo this.
