  • Rochelle,
    Congratulations on being featured in WP’s Daily Post today. Your weekly challenge has awakened my latent desire to tell some stories and stretch my comfort zone. I look forward to this week’s challenge.

  • Hi, I’m a first time blogger and I found you via Daily Post. Been wondering how I can participate and share more. Would also appreciate to have some feedback on my blog. Thank you! 🙂

  • Dear Rochelle, I continue to have problems with my website and had to install a backup which meant I had to recreate my FF post. It is done and at the bottom #92 but I need #79 deleted as it is a broken link and I can’t delete it. The comment problem is still there and am waiting for the forum to help me. Thanx, so much. Susan:)


  • Hello, Rochelle. I’m glad to have found your blog and the Friday Fictioneers. I enjoy writing prompts and am looking forward to participating in more.


  • Hi Rochelle, I hope this isn’t a bother, but I have a question that I think you might be able to answer. I’ve noticed some bloggers (e.g. you) mention they have an award free blog. I’m still a bit new to WordPress. What does having an award-free blog mean and what are the awards people receive? From what I can tell, the awards seem mostly superfluous, but I could be misunderstanding the purpose.

    It feels strange to put this in a comment, but WordPress doesn’t seem to have a private messaging system without a plugin. Hope you are having a great day. 🙂


    • Dear Laura,

      I’m sorry it’s taken me a while to get back to you.It would be nice if WP had a private messaging system, wouldn’t it? At any rate, if someone else reads this it’s okay.

      As you can see by my margin on my page, I’ve participated in a few of these “blog awards.” While I’m flattered when someone “nominates” me, it’s a time suck and, in my opinion, not really an award. It usually requires copying and pasting and then answering a list of questions. In turn, it also requires nominating at least ten other people. So really kind of a blogging chain letter. So after doing a couple I decided to be award free.

      I hope that makes sense and explains it for you.




    • Hi Jennie,
      To send a photo for a prompt, attach it in jpg form and email it to runtshell@gmail.com. Please make sure your name shows up either as a signature at the bottom or it or in the name of the jpg. Something like jennie.jpg. I’ve photos that I know were sent by FF’rs but I can’t remember who.
      Shalom and thank you.



  • Hi Rochelle,
    While I regret to say I haven’t read either of your books, (A mistake I look forward to correcting shortly), I was hoping, you could take a look at my blogs and let me know what you think of my writing. I would a peer’s opinion.
    I look forward to participating in Friday Fictioneers.



  • Hey Rochelle, hope this finds you fine. I sometimes come across good abstract pics that could be used as prompts for fictioneers. I do not know if suggesting one would disqualify me from that week’s attempt but I wouldn’t mind. How can I share some with you?


  • Hi there, I’ve nominated you for a Mystery Blogger Award as I’ve enjoyed your blog so much! Accepting the award was actually quite a lot of effort so I completely understand if you don’t want to accept it 🙂 If you do, all the (quite detailed…) instructions are on my blog. Cheers, Barb.

    • Dear Robert,

      I almost missed this. For whatever reason it went to my spam queue. You’re more than welcome to ‘mooch’ around. Feel free to leave comments on stories and pages as well. 😉 That’s the reason I post a blog. Thank you for coming by. Make yourself at home.
