I hope you enjoy this. I am so grateful for this month, this challenge. Thank you!!
“It’s the end, isn’t it?” Karen thought as she looked at the calendar. She saw that it was indeed the end of May. She felt an ache in her chest knowing that the Story a Day month was nearly over.
Karen had gone to the website and read the wonderful stories that on the blog. She knew that there were still stories that would appear on the blog for her to read, but she hated for it to end.
“So many talented authors. So many unknown authors,” she thought. “What can I do to encourage them to keep going?”
She paced and thought about the situation. When she went to bed, she tried to dream of ways to make the wonderful writing continue. Several days went by and she still was no closer to an answer.
As she sat in a boring meeting, it came to her. She could go to the blog and post as many positive comments as she could on all the stories that she loved. She wanted these authors to know that people really do enjoy reading their work. Maybe with that encouragement, they would keep writing.
Karen went to the blog site and began writing her comments. She felt as light hearted as she commented. “You are a very talented author, please, please keep writing,” she put on one. As she selected save, it came to her. She could try her hand as well. Maybe she would start now.
“Thank you, Story A Day, for encouraging me in my dream.”
