Monthly SimLit Short Story Challenge – Announcement & Info


I have to apologize for my delay in releasing this.  I did not forget.  I had to step back and take a few days off social media and television.  TBH it had me in a dark scary place.   I am feeling better but still sad to have let down those who were counting on me.
