The #fridayflash Report
Never underestimate the power of a little press. Maria Schneider graciously allowed me to do a guest post on her blog, Editor Unleashed, about #fridayflash, and man, did it work. We had many new voices join us this week, for a total of thirty-five stories. Thank you, Maria! I also want to thank all the wonderful writers who contributed as well as our fabulous readers who retweet and comment. You are all great.
Normally I welcome each new author personally in the Report. But there are so many that's a dicey proposition - I may miss someone and inadvertently offend. Plus my gray cells aren't what they used to be and I may welcome someone who is not new. Yikes! How would that make them feel? So, Welcome all! Come back next week, and bring a friend!
