This has been a busy month, no surprise. As I watch the days slide by, I wonder if I have tried to take on too many projects this Christmas season. There is always the danger of getting so busy that celebration gets lost, so lost in the celebration that the meaning is lost. While I… Read More Bustle or Blessing
Despite the time that has elapsed since last time I posted stories, there are not a whole lot listed here. Sorry. More stories were written, just not turned in, whether due to being written on paper or not being finished or some other factor.

Lemon Uprising By Lexi Anders All Gerardo wanted was to make some connections in the town he just moved to. It started out… Read More New Rules, New Stories
Sorry I’m so tardy with this. This Saturday, May 20, the stories due are after the following ‘rule’: The 24 Hours In Which Gerardo Proves His Loyalty, Finds His Courage and Eats a Lemon. We crafted the idea off descriptive chapter titles.
