We started our week looking at a delightful story by Hosted Author Libby Drew. Radiant Renee Stevens gave us a great review of Libby's Spark and sat8997 and Mark Arbour both chimed in with their praise for Libby's works.
Our Tuesday Toss up looked at heroes - specifically various readers from the perspective of two authors, FleetingRainbows and C James. The comments on this blog are as valuable as the entry itself, IMHO.
For our midweek Author's Showcase, we had a review of Promising Author Dark's Butterflies of Death as well as a great review of Author Cehammock's Gaze. Getting these glimpses of stories people might not normally come across on their own is one of the things for which I'm most proud of the GA Blog.
Our Tip Thursday was the conclusion of the two-part "Breaking Through" - a compliation of how various authors attack the dreaded writing block.
For our Weekly Writing Prompts, Comicfan gave us both Prompt 160, a creative one called The Dog, as well as Prompt 161, a Challenging one called Story Time. We also took a look back to last summer to see how Dolores Esteban responded to Prompt 47 with her alternate take on The Frog Prince fairy tale.
Then we ended the week with our Blast From the Past - this time looking at a February 2007 newsletter article about upcoming site features - like a gallery!
So - how was your week?
