The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 32

January 9, 2012 in FridayFlash Report by JM Strother

We had 44 stories in the Collector this week including one debut. Please welcome Joe Lerner to the #FridayFlash community. If your story is not in the listing below please visit the afore mentioned Collector and add the details and we’ll add it to next week’s listing. Also, if you are having trouble seeing all the buttons on the Collector please let me know. I am, but I’m not sure if it is just me and my computer or if it is a more general problem. If it is a general problem we hope to have it cleared up soon. In the mean time, keep on writing.
