Every Friday authors from around the world gather to share their 100-words and offer constructive crit and encouragement to each other. This creates a wonderful opportunity for free reading of very fresh fiction! Readers are encouraged to comment as well.
If you would like to read all the short stories please go to Rochelle’s blog here. Here is my contribution! Hope you enjoy.

Like the song said, “Earl had to die.”
