Monthly SimLit Short Story Challenge: September 2019 Theme & August 2019 Submissions w Vote

I have changed things up a bit.  In an effort to ensure all the info reaches the readers, I have combined the two end of month posts.

I hope this “one-stop shopping” will lessen the confusion of two back to back posts and get the info out more effectively.

Part 1 of this blog will present the upcoming monthly theme, banner links and challenge specifics for the month.

Part 2 will contain links to the previous month’s submissions and a link to the voting site.

      1. I think I figured out what happened .. I did not realize that you had changed your banner to August from June .. it never occured to me that the banner was not correct. Sooo sorry I should have asked why you were posting a June entry in Aug ❤


  1. Oooh! What a theme for September and for the new pack!!! 😀 Lets see if I can manage to get two stories in two months out there. 😀 (As always thanks so much for all your hard work!)

  2. The September theme fits in perfectly with a couple of characters I’m developing in my game. Love it! I already have the scenes for my story mapped out. Thanks for giving us more words this time, too, as I think I’m going to need them. 🙂
