Even though it is nearly Monday Morning, I am just now having time to get to this new section of Writing Outside the Lines. My weekly prompt that is posted at some point during each Sunday is oh hiatus until 2017 … due to a variety of reasons, most of all everyone is busy with the holidays and we need some time off … one less stressor until after the first of the year. That being said, I will be posting a new short story under this section each week. I read somewhere that Ray Bradbury said if you wrote one short story a week for a year you would have a book of short stories … 52. It is kind of like the analogy my grad school major professor told us when we felt totally overwhelmed … “You can eat an elephant one bit at a time.” Enough of the platitudes … and on with the stories!
