Mark My Words

Writing, flying and yawning my way through motherhood

Today’s Submission – Common Ties October 22, 2008

I’ve known about Common Ties for some time but I was never inspired enough to write anything for them. They pay well, $50 for 50 words. This morning I came up with five or six ideas so I sent them in. How about you? Do you have a story you can tell in 50 words or less?
