Tiggr kept this new idea, Fantasy Friday she called it, going for about a year. When she decided to leave blogging she offered the idea to me to see if I wanted to continue it. I told her no because I just didn’t think people would send me stories. But after giving it some thought I decided I wanted to try it. I changed it from a guessing game to just a place where the average person could write a story and have it posted.
I did have many people send stories – many of these people have since become some of my best friends ever! And there are still a handful of blogs that began by me pestering them to keep writing and join us.
But as the title said, all good things must come to an end and that time has come for Fantasy Friday. During 2016 I received only seven new stories – and thank you for those who did write for us, but it’s hard to fill fifty-two Friday’s with seven stories. I feel like I’ve done enough re-runs. I don’t want anyone to feel deprived so feel free to go back in my archives. I began hosting Fantasy Friday in October 2007 and I’ve only missed a Friday or two since then so it should be easy to find them.
Now it’s the every Friday I’m stopping – but I would never want to discourage anyone who has been thinking of writing a story, but just never got around to it. I will be delighted to post any new stories I get. Occasionally I'll ask for stories and if I get any we'll have a ‘New Fantasy Friday’ post. So no one has missed a chance to write and I hope you’ll consider it. If you are willing to write for us send your story to email@example.com I’d be happy to hear from you.
