Tuesday Tales: December 19, 2017. Today's Prompt: TINY

Hello again. Welcome to this week's edition of Tuesday Tales. To all who are celebrating a major holiday this week, best wishes for a wonderful time with friends and family.

Tuesday Tales is a weekly blog hop that focuses on the works in progress of a select group of writers. Many of the stories birthed here go on to become novels. Our mentor and founder, Jean Joachim, keeps us on our toes, challenging us each week with a new prompt. This week, we have a word prompt: TINY

Take the time to visit each post and see how we all use the word. Feedback is always appreciated.
