I’ve been reading everyone else’s contributions with awe, marvelling at what different things we all did, and just bubbling up with love for everyone in this bar.
Usually short stories leave me feeling sated, needing to sit with them for a while, before I can read the next one. Anthologies take me ages to finish.
