It’s time for the #D10Challenge!

In case you’ve not heard, one of my goals for 2015 is to write 52 short stories- one for every week of the year. Thus far I’m on schedule (hopefully I can say the same thing in July!) and at some point a few days ago, I wasn’t quite sure what to write. I had come up…
