Late April 2011 I discovered StoryADay.org and the project that is to write 31 stories in 31 days. Anyone who knows me or follows this blog, knows how passionate I am about short stories so my clichéd eyes lit up at this new marvel. And just a few days later there I was, breathing life into new characters. This went on to become (after editing of course) my 31-story collection eBook Story A Day May 2011.
The stories included in the 2012 collection are (click here for the prompts):
