Nicole, YOU have kept us going! Your short story writing is reliably enigmatic and you’ve been a steadfast contributor of top notch stories to TWK from day one! I’m embarrassed to say, I had no idea you’d been ill, I thought ( see? there I go assuming things) you were just taking a break! I’m extremely relieved and happy to have you back on Medium and in TWK and I know I speak for all of us at the Knob when I say I’m looking forward to another 50 +/- ‘Nicole Wilson signature stories’ in 2018! ( just puttin’ it out there :-) no pressure. :-) Happy New Year!!
