Update 17

Welcome

I hope this update finds you well!

Recap

Last week, we had poetry and discussions on mental health. Over the weekend, I shared eight sets of short stories. A weekly short fiction challenge, Dawn To Twilight Trio Challenge, also went live.

What’s new…

  • Poetry prompts. I promised an update and today I am excited to announce that the prompts are ready!
  • Dawn To Twilight Trio Challenge is in its second week. Join me… Do you have or can think of a story? I will begin sharing mine this week and hope to read yours!

Coming up

  • I will confirm on Thursday if Friday’s play will be ready.
  • This week, we will have discussions on finding, knowing and loving yourself.
  • Last Tuesday and Thursday, I could not share short stories; I will have at least two ready for this week!
