20140812-072838.jpg

My apologies for being a little late with this week’s wrap up.

SHORT STORY NEWS & LINKS

I found another blogger doing a challenge similar to ours, but much more ambitious. Check out “the short story box” – http://msbookish.com/a-short-story-a-day-randomized/

If, like me, Returning Reader’s short story deck has whetted your appetite for African short stories, check out the following:

This one sounds interesting:

    Thanks for linking to my short story box post. I’ve experienced a real evolution in my short story reading by doing it the randomized way – it just makes it so much more fun. I just checked out your Deal Me In challenge page – thank you for posting those links to the short story resources. I will definitely be browsing through them.

      No problem. 🙂 I agree there’s a huge “fun” element in letting fate decide your next story, whether it’s once a week or once a day. From the sound of your post, you have plenty of stories to last you awhile, even at a rate of one per day. 🙂

    Me, I’m behind, too. Had a bit of oral surgery after which I could only sleep for four days. Will be back on board soon.
