The First Seven ’79 Words Story’ Entrants…

I loved this 79 word story challenge. Thanks to Andrew Joyce for throwing down the gauntlet (so to speak), and Chris for gathering all the stories together and sharing them. It was a huge thrill to be part of this first group – all such talented women. Don’t miss their stories and, don’t forget, it’s not too late to take part πŸ™‚
