I'm still waiting to hear back from one of the winners. Prizes will be delivered to the winner's emails when I hear back from the last winner.
In light of July's fabulous 4th celebration, I thought it would be fun to use an image relating to the holiday. This doesn't mean the story has to be about the 4th of July.
To be honest, when I chose this particular image, celebrating was the furthest thing from my mind. In honor of each participant's creativity, there will be no prompt. Have fun!
