    • Me too Jackie! Your blog is so great, I really enjoy your posts. How cool that you have the HerStories anthology on your TBR list! I need to get the second one, the one about failed female friendships which I totally had a story for but couldn’t muster the mental stamina to write… probably for the same reason I’m avoiding reading it, even though I know it’s got to be fantastic. I just love the HerStories ladies!
