    With your indulgence, I will give myself and any who might want to take advantage of my need for grace, an extension of the October challenge until 7 Nov. TY I have been under some heavy self-doubt and have hit a low point in my story-telling .. I could skip it this month but I really am glad to "hop back on the horse" and attempt a ride.

    That's fine with me. This challenge is the only time I can get myself to feel any type of confidence in my storytelling and it usually takes me all month to get myself to that point. I've been forcing myself to do it every month since this summer instead of every other month to, hopefully, grow my confidence. So, I understand.

    October submissions are published. We had the most DELIGHTFUL stories entered. There was not a single one that I did not fully enjoy! How I wish I had a magic wand so that I could get simmers to click in and read.

    Hi!

    I'm new to the forum, but when I read this thread I immediately thought that it sounded like an interesting and funny idea. So I decided to give it a go, here there is my entry: --> New Horizons. :)

    OHH how I love seeing the novice banner when I click in. I do adore my vets but honestly, the more is indeed the merrier!

    Sorry I can't comment to everyone. I don't have tumblr or blogger IDs. I of course read all stories and enjoyed them very much! :)

    This is the same for me as well. I only have a wordpress so I can like and comment there, but the rest I can only read.

    All very well done, fun reads this month and super interesting to see how different everyone took the prompt :)

    As is often the case with our challenge, the vote for Top reader's choice was extremely tight! Great job everyone!
