Where did June go? This summer has flown by all too quickly, and I never put up the June writing prompts. I apologize to my bloggers that share their stories on this site.

Since July is all about hot summer nights and friends, I decided to use these as suggestions for our stories. Have fun, and do not forget to share your tales.

Did you or a family member ever share a tall tale? How did that story pan out? Share your story!
Let’s share some stories for May! With these high-spirited topics, the tales should be fun-loving and humorous. Happy writing!
