Visually stunning! Imagine doing all that work on something that doesn’t last.
And for those stumped for story ideas…
And yes, it’s the fifteenth and we didn’t have any SFAP entries for the Ice Man. No worries–not all pictures will spark interest and we are all very busy right now. But, here is the next image for our writing inspiration. See this page for details!
