Some Winsome Plans

envelope_by_garconis-dakfk92 

The 2018 Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner is going to begin Wednesday, January 10th.

This is the Writer’s Community that I have attempted to host- for better or worse- this last year.

I thought that I would give each of my followers a chance to broaden their horizons with a few new writing experiences as well as give you a heads-up on the happenings of this community.

Here are some of the upcoming contests that have caught my attention for this new year.

Listed after them are some weekly writing opportunities for fun and fellowship with other writers.

I hope you will bless me with giving  Flash Fiction for the Practical Practitioner a try.

I hope to see you on Wednesday!
