Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.

- I posted for the Halloween edition for Write Edit Publish on Wednesday, and got some great feedback for my spooky story. Click here if you want to read it! The other pieces were brilliant too, as usual!
