The maximum number of readers connecting with the site is 55. To date I received 18 responses. Maybe some people aren’t far enough along in the story to comment – or maybe they haven’t liked the story and they’ve moved on.
Here’s what people said:
- About 2/3 of you work in healthcare.
- The character most people connect with is Hattie. Two folks named Jack (I think maybe these are readers who recognized him).
- Reactions to the storyline include: identification with the horror and sadness of Bridie’s situation; interest in day-to-day mental health work (with clients and with the team); familiarity of the setting (I’m guessing this reader is from said small town); and the tension between Hattie and Linda.
- Other comments (consolidated): team dynamics and tensions are common, relatable and transcend workplaces; blogposts are too short and sometimes it’s hard to find the next chapter on the site; the writing is a little too ‘clinical’; the stories sound real; I am enjoying it.
Thanks again! This feedback is helpful to shaping the story.
