The Best #Bloggers = Garver & Glass House Retreat

... Featured for today's #AtoZChallenge - @LaurelGarver & @GlassRetreat ...

Over the years I've learned so much, made so many friends, and been uplifted by so many great bloggers! As a result, I'm recognizing some of the best bloggers for this year's A to Z Challenge. These bloggers have shared knowledge, promotions, jokes, guidance, support, and more. Scroll on down to meet the next set of bloggers.

To the BEST BLOGGERS in the world - I say, "Thank you!"

G is for Laurel Garver and The Glass House Retreat

Laurel Garver is a "City dweller, word nerd, Indie film enthusiast and incurable Anglophile. Professor's wife and mom to a second-year Ravenclaw (perhaps wishful thinking, but she does wear a blue uniform to school...). Follower of the Good Shepherd, who is faithful when we are faithless. My poetry and fiction explore the places where heart and soul are tested and growing up truly begins. I also work in the Ivory Tower of academia as an editor, but don't hold it against me." Her blog, Laurel's Leaves, offers great writing advice, such as, "Need to raise more questions in your fiction? ... Who has the most to lose in this situation? Who might be secret allies? Who would have the most trouble keeping this secret? Who should the protagonist trust? Who should the protagonist suspect?”

The Glass House Retreat is a blog run by Maggie Pinque. I've been a long time admirer of Maggie's. She is dynamic, generous, and soulful. She supports women in their pursuits, and posts like this one make me love her even more.

Please take two minutes to stop by these two awesome blogs and thank them for all they contribute to the blogosphere!
