  1. In 2007 I submitted a story to Common Ties and was published there. I just noticed the link does not work. Are you experiencing the same thing? For anyone interested I wrote "The Gold Medal." I wrote this before they asked the questions. Love the questions too. They are a great writing prompt. Good luck with your writing career. Nice-looking blog. My blog is at I'll be coming back to read some of your blog. Sounds interesting Barbara Toboni
