Past October blog:

I am back from a 3 month unplanned hiatus and hopefully can get this challenge back underway.

I missed you all and I missed this challenge.

Just to get us all back into the swing of things, here is a link to the forum thread (we are a forum based challenge):

  1. I just wanted to vote for everyone who is not me. I just love reading them, and having a chance to see what other writers are doing out there. I personally don’t feel a need to “win” and I hope that everyone else doesn’t take the outcome of the votes too seriously. Be proud of writing and of being brave to share. Keep on writing everyone.
