Yea! It’s Sunday and time for Six Sentence Sunday
Every week participants post six sentences from something they are writing – or have written. It’s a lot of fun and really a great way to meet new writers!
And I’ve met some terrific people. Thank you !
Be sure to check out the other great participants and thanks so much for stopping by.
A year already? It’s been wonderful meeting so many of you, reading your stories and receiving your feedback on mine. Thank you 😀 I’m so glad I joined this writing community!
