New Story Circle – Sully Part I

Back in June of this year I participated in a story circle on Cameron Garriepy’s web site. Go ahead and read that story at “A Line Run Rounds the World“. It was great fun, a good exercise, and now it is about to happen again. This Dark Highwaytime though I will be part two instead of the initial kick off.

The four different parts are coming out on the successive Wednesdays in November.

Her intuition told her she had a long road ahead.
