The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 24

To keep everyone on their toes I am actually getting the Report out in some semblance of “on time.” We had 44 stories this week including  3 debuts. Considering that we are in the throes of NaNoWriMo, that is pretty good turn out. Please welcome T.D.Boush, Rosalind Smith-Nazilli, and Lacy Lalonde to the #FridayFlash community.

If your story is not in the listing just visit the Collector and add your details. We’ll have it in next week’s listing. Thanks again to everyone who participates. I continue to believe this is one of the best communities of writers on the web. You are all terrific. ~jon
