We have a lift off!
I've visited Anne's blog a few times. Need to pop in more.
Imagine writing one true sentence every day? What a powerful story that would be.

Stephen Tremp said...

I can't write one true sentence. I'm a fiction writer; a professional liar for hire to total strangers.

I’m exploring different types of dreams and their meanings during the #AtoZChallenge at Stephen Tremp’s Breakthrough Blogs
