  3. I have a cousin named Donetta… you are the only other person I’ve known to have that name! I’m taking that as a sign that I should follow your blog… that and the fact that I loved the story you shared with us at 6SS today! 🙂

    1. I’m glad you liked it. Flash fiction is new for me. I usually do poetry. It is an unusual name. My grandmother that raised me named me. Her middle name was Donald. Seems to be something about men’s names being thrown in back in those days, I guess. Her youngest sister’s name was Etta. So, my mom was going to name me Jennifer Rose from Jennifer Rose Horton on Days of our Lives. My grandmother spared me and named me Don-etta. Before the end of elementary school, my name started being pronounced Duh-netta. lol. It’s fitting. 🙂

  4. An enthusiastic, open, fun and friendly blog…off to see your poetry!
