  1. I enjoyed this, Janet! Nice to see you round. And now I’ll be extra careful drinking my tea. šŸ™‚

      Thanks Carrie. It’s nice to be back online. I erroneously thought I’d be able to keep up my blogging schedule with the three kids home for the summer. Not really working out that way but Iā€™m trying!

    • Janet said:

      Thanks Gilly. So far I have found readers either get it or they don’t. Glad you got it!

    I love your writing, Janet. I love that it is so creative and often shocks me. But I think what I love best, is that you are able to take the most mundane, ‘everyday kind of experiences’ and make me think. Deeply. I always ask myself, “What is this REALLY about?’ And you give me permission to come to my own conclusions, without making me feel as if I’ve been hit over the head, but instead it shoves me…just a bit.
    Your writing is like a literary Rorschach Inkblot Test.

    • Janet said:

      Thanks Karen. That is a huge compliment. I’m blushing.

    Read your story twice! I love to read a story that has just that little odd something that makes you stop and think. Why did that teacup breaking make such an impression on Sharon? Why couldn’t she just get over it? Great job and congratulations on being chosen for the Fiction 365!

    • Janet said:

      Glad you enjoyed it and glad it made you stop and think (I was hoping for that). I love playing around with the mundane.

  4. I really enjoyed your story Janet, good to see you and I’ll echo those congrats on being chosen for the Fiction 365 šŸ™‚

    • Janet said:

      Thanks Polly. (I’ve been offline more than I expected to be – ah summer!)

  5. Truely enjoyed yr fine tale, Janet. Throughout, I kept thinking of the stopped image of the holding up of the cup, peering through the unbelievable round fallout hole (“It can’t be”) I love those “what’s it all about, alfy” moments, & I love it that the writer wouldn’t let it go
    thanx, & thanx for all yr support of my work

    • Janet said:

      Thanks so much for the fine compliment. The whole story came to me when the bottom of my tea cup did indeed fall out one day.

  6. I liked this story, Janet. I was drawn in and wanted to know about Sharon. Great job!
