RULES for VOTING: Anyone can vote as long as you’ve read ALL the stories for this week by 10 PM PDT, SUNDAY. Vote for your TOP 3 favorites. Winner announced on Monday! (With as many great stories as get submitted, I think we all need just a little more time to read them and vote!)

    1. Your okay, Orana. I got behind and feel asleep on the couch last night, so crawled into my bed without finishing. I’ll be sure to add tour story before the poll, after I get my kids all of to school! How was your week?


    1. I don’t have next week’s word yet! I have to bug my kids for it in the morning. haha 🙂 It’s 11:51 Monday here still, but I’m visiting another author friend tomorrow, so I wanted to get a jump start on organizing Blog Battle stuff for tomorrow. Since school started I’ve been on a Go-G0-Go sort of schedule. I thought things would slow down! There’s still 24 hours to post your story so no worries. 🙂
