They publish 101 word flash fiction daily.  They wanted a rewrite and I worked harder on those 101 words than any other published fiction. Which is a good thing! The story was much improved.

Shoshone Falls, Idaho

Last Sunday Suze and I met a good friend for breakfast in Twin Falls, Idaho and then proceeded to Shoshone Falls Park. It is about a two-hour drive from Boise, mostly on I-84 with an 80 MPH speed limit. In the mornings the highway is pretty empty so cruising along is easy. Afternoons the 18-wheelers […]
