Charli Mills shares the submissions to the Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction challenge this week… which was to showcase the word Chisel.. wonderful stories including from Annette Rochelle Aben, Molly Stevens, D.Avery, Anne Goodwin, Robbie Cheadle and Charli herself… over 50 short stories and poems, definitely worth a read.
