First of the Month Fiction - July
It's the holidays, and so I'm shutting up shop with this post, due to return mid July. Everyone enjoy the break, and see you on twitter or around and about.
For newcomers, write a story in 100 words exactly or one less than 30 words. Put the story in the comments here, and link your blog below, so we can see your writing without a word count!

It was so hard being a single mother to a teenager.
This one had to be striped down, and took forever to get the word count right. Not entirely happy with the outcome...but, so it goes!
Don't for get to add your link and happy holidays everyone!
