  • Aw, Mia! This may be your best installment of this story yet. I was thrilled when I realized they had their powers again, and were back in New York where it all began. I like that you gave such detail to the setting, you captured the essence of the bustling city quite well, and the chaos it played on Daniel’s nerves (him being a country boy and…[Read more]

  • Hi Doug, I’m doing okay in these ‘unprecedented times’, though busier than ever and having trouble finding time to read/write these days. Thanks for reading me again. I hadn’t actually planned on using this for the prompt, as this was just an exercise to work out some of the twins back story. I had a completely different story that I was working…[Read more]

  • Oh my word, Doug, this was a hoot! I could just imagine good ol’ formal Donald Johnson, Esquire, pulling at his tie in discomfort at the beginning, wishing he was anywhere but where he was, but drawn to the money despite the seemingly uselessness of the case. The image I had of old Miss Carroway was of Granny from The Beverly Hillbillies, only…[Read more]

  • Thanks for your kind words, Gold. I appreciate the comment.

  • You’ve told the story well well, Gold, the age old story of the mid-life affair and the end of a good marriage. I thought you captured the jealousy and the obsession of the wife really well, and I loved the way you portrayed the husband, losing the charm he had of a needy mistress twenty years younger than him and missing his wife who knew him so…[Read more]

  • Thanks for reading me again, Stevie! I’m still working on the details of these characters and hope to showcase them again in future prompts.

  • Stevie, you writing skills are indeed improving, and this may well be your best story yet. I like that you are not afraid to take on tough subjects, of abuse and neglect, of broken promises and broken people. Your use of the senses to place the reader in the setting is fantastic, as is the way you describe the characters and their actions. I felt…[Read more]

  • Thanks for reading and leaving your kind comment.

  • Thanks for the great encouragement, Paul. I appreciate this very much!

  • Hi Paul, this was such a fun, original take on the prompt, and somewhat different from your other stories. Although, I remember your story of your dog, and the one with the animals that were hunted, both of which also fall into the category of humorous and original.

    I enjoyed the conversation between Rosa and Daisy. It seemed Daisy was a bit…[Read more]

  • Hi Deryn, thanks for reading, and glad you enjoyed my psycho thriller. I came up with these characters last month for a psycho thriller that I’m reworking and hoping to turn into a novel. This was really just an exercise to learn more about their background and answer some of the questions that came up from the last prompt. It seemed to work well…[Read more]

  • Hi Seyi, things are quite busy here these days. I barely have time to read, let alone write, but today I found a few hours and I’m getting caught up with my reading. I hope you’re well and well along on your October prompt. Thanks for reading my story, I wondered if the reader might think Jenna was a ghost, or a split personality, heck, I was…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane, thanks for reading my story. It’s a prequel to last months story, which featured these two characters. I’m considering turning that story into a full length novel, and I was doing a bit of a character study on the twins to flesh them out more. I hadn’t intended to use this for this month’s prompt, but I ran out of time with my other idea,…[Read more]

  • Well done on the continuing saga of the girl with the gift! I don’t think you used her name in this installment, was it Amari? After the opening incident, she seems to have come to grips with her gift, finding it less painful when it comes, and learning to gain control of it. Just think what she can do as a vet! The ending is quite the…[Read more]

  • Hi Jane, somehow I missed this story last month, so when I went to read your September prompt and realized it was part 2, I decided I should read part 1 first, and here I am. I love the premise of this story, I love the character and think her gift is awesome! I love that you have continued the story in part 2, and am looking forward to seeing…[Read more]

  • Hi Sudha, thanks so much for your feedback and your questions. I’m still pondering the answer to some of your questions, though most are pretty solid in my mind, and I’ll do my best to tease out the reasons behind their behavior in future prompts or in my novel when I release it. I’m working on another story line for the October prompt, so we’ll…[Read more]

  • There are so many things I love about your story, Sudha! I quite enjoyed watching the friendship develop through the two perspectives, they were so different from each other – Diane quiet and shy, Ruby outspoken and vivacious, Diane from a privileged family, Ruby from an immigrant family with “not a lot of money.” Yet, they seemed to thrive off…[Read more]

  • I’m not sure which is more difficult, asking for help, or recognizing and responding to the one asking for it.

  • Your virtual hug is a welcome thing, it feels warm and kindhearted. You do indeed have a great memory, that must help with your ability to give such honest and direct feedback, which I appreciate so much.

  • Thanks for your feedback, Nissan; I think many of us struggle with one form of addiction or another, all to varying degrees. Wishing strength and courage for each other.
