Hello! I took a bit of a hiatus from Weekend Warriors, but I have returned 🙂 My Adam and Eve story will continue next week with the last installment.
You must write either 8 sentences or 150 word limit for poetry. Lots of great writers participate. You can check em out via ze button above.
For those who are new, I am continuing my story about Hagar and Ishmael in the Desert. For understanding the backstory, go here. For previous installments: Part one, Part two, Part three and Part four
