    Thanks for stopping by my little blog.


  4. Interesting titles on the shelf. Read one or two, recognise some, don’t know others.

  5. Karen, I’ve just spent the last few weeks reading your entire blog from latest to earliest. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to future posts! I like how your posts give me ‘a-ha! moments’ and make me think differently about things I previously just assumed. Also love the Friday Fictioneers. Your blog has a definite purpose and role in the online world, something I’m hoping to work out this year with my own blog. Keep the posts coming!

    • Hi Jessie. You can’t know how very thrilled I was to read your comments! Thank you for them. It has taken a while, and some experimentation, to find the purpose and role for my blog. I’m surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed sharing the things I discover about writing, and learning from other writers like you who share my love of putting words together. I’m following your blog with pleasure.
