Right on! Tomorrow is more of a quiet day for me which means I get to have some time to read ( given that my kids are nice to me). I am interested in finding out what fox tails is about :D

I was hoping to get some stories out this week but I am having troubles with my wrists lately which make regular movements hard, like just doing dishes, zipping up and unzipping coats. This morning was pretty bad were I had to ask my husband to cut my young daughters pancakes for her. It was very painful. I hope it gets fixed up soon as I can't write up a storm in this condition.

Hi @gardengnomepubs, I'm @checky ! While checking the mentions made in this post I noticed that @swolsome, @cryptochrille and @gruesome don't exist on Steem. Did you mean to write @swolesome, @cryptothrill and @huesome ?

Happy to join anytime I can find the time.

Is there any limit about length of stories posted?
