Summer Goeth Before the Fall
I cannot believe that Summer is waning.
#WordCountPodcast episode 90 is now open for public submissions once again.
This month, we have a prompt from rural Pennsylvania the fits in nicely with both the coming autumn and our season theme of Landscapes:
In all honesty, Fall is my favorite season, and I think this month’s prompt catches the spirit of the seasonal transition rather well.
The guidelines for submission to the show are below–and anyone can send in a story for consideration. I’m always open to new writers and new ideas.
I would love to hear from you, either with a story submission or via social media. I have a Facebook Page that could use a few ‘likes.’ The more listeners and contributors we have, the better the shows can be.
There are over 500 original stories at this point—all free for your listening pleasure; all we ask is for people to help get the word out. Click the link:
