Those are the new posts I noted since the last update. If I’ve missed you and you are posting about your stories, please help me out and let me know in the comments. It also helps if you link back to the sign up/intro post as I will see the pingback and know to include your post In the wrap up. Deal Me In may be outgrowing the “manual updates” format.
Please take time to check out some of your fellow participants posts. You might learn something (I sure did this week!). I also found it interesting that we had two stories this week whose titles included the words “Perspective” and “Orientation” and that two readers both drew the queen of hearts. That’s two weeks in a row where two participants have drawn the same card.
Also, please note that “Late-joining” the Deal Me In challenge is allowed and encouraged. Below are a few new joiners. One of the advantages of this challenge is that it doesn’t take long to catch up if you fall behind or start late, 🙂 See you next week!
