It’s time for more Friday Fictioneers! I’ve got The Widow Teal on my brain with Camp NaNoWriMo starting tomorrow, so I decided to incorporate the characters into today’s flash fiction. This time, I’m writing about Arty, Jerrica’s friend and supporter – and a retired detective who is recovering from his last (and hardest) case. Through today’s story, we glimpse at what his life was like before he landed in Jerrica’s neck of North Carolina.
Don’t get me wrong. I love a good beef stew. But my favorite raw food resources help me stay on track and eat the way my body craves: a diet high in raw foods.
Did you love The Widow Teal Part One? I’ll be writing parts two and three during Camp NaNoWriMo. Check out how you can read Part One for FREE!

How do you discover a new topic? Are you visual or more hands-on? I need to research and read all I can on a topic. Join me as I move through my very own Montessori reading list in an effort to really digest and enjoy this method of learning.
