Welcome to another snippet.
The past few weeks have been a challenge for me technically and have not been able to submit any post. The place where I stayed after the fires in Fort McMurray had very unreliable WiFi. I’ve posted this snippet early in hopes that it will have a chance to read it. This will be my third attempt to get it up and it seems to have worked.
Over the next little while I will bring you the remainder
of the short story, 8 – 10 sentences at a time.
This link will take you to the Weekend Writing Warriors
