As is customary I am previewing the next challenge, Empty Shoes, based upon this picture:

I am not at all sure what to make of it as story inspiration, so I hope folk will surprise me!

Well, four entries for a diffcult challenge is pretty good so far, and there are just over 24 hours left. We have to take the summer holiday season into account, too.  Hmm, note to self, what about Southern Hemisphre authors?  I do miss Kiwi.

I won't quite hit Noon on 24th. I do part time shift work, and I got given an extra shift on Friday morning. A colleague is stuck in the Channel Isles with a leaky boat. I finish work just as the challenge opens. Well, a few minutes later. So it will be here as soon as I can.
