I love this post, Marsha — the highlighting of one blogger/writer and the inclusion of so many more. I look forward to other entries like this!

Donna from Retirement Reflections

What a deep dive into the story and all it evoked for the readers. Such a touching response from Hugh – a master story-teller indeed. This was a fascinating look back. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and including my link. 

Diana from D. Wallace Peach

I like how you shared the different ways of how readers interpreted the story. And thank you very much for linking to my blog, Marsha!!

Erica from Erica Kind

I don’t believe I’ve seen another blogger do something like this, so (as far as I’m concerned) it’s unique. Of course, I’ll also share it on my blog.

Hugh of Hugh’s Views and News

You give an author exposure, and readers a chance to develop thoughtful responses. Literary art happens between the space created between writing, reading, and discussing.
