    1. I didn’t know what fallow meant at first. I’m always glad to add another word to my vocab list. 🙂

      1. It’s a lovely word with a smart purpose. Sometimes, for things to grow, we need to let the soil rest! ❤ That's a good analogy for writing stress, too. 😀

        1. I need to learn how to better use that word. I’ve only read it related to fields, but not to other things yet. I like how you used it!

          1. Thanks, E. Primarily, it is used in relation to farming, but we sure do like to give the same words several meanings.

  6. I’ve been trying to post for a pingback, but so far unsuccessful. Also, I didn’t list the story as Horror, except on my actual story page. Apologies.


    1. The problem may have been me writing it as a “Page” instead of a “Post”… Picky, picky, if so.
      Here is the link to the POST. 😀


      1. I seem to have two pingback links available, but I can’t access then from my phone. I’ll check on them when I get home. 🙂


        1. Huh. I’ve been trying to make my site more mobile-friendly… 😦

          1. There’s an option in the menu of the admin part of WordPress if you are on WordPress dot com. Not all layouts are mobile-friendly, though!
