Good morning, Write Edge readers! You’ll find the latest “Sharing work” post now up on The Write Edge Writing Workshop. Entries this morning include writing advice and also some posts related to the holidays. Enjoy them all by going to The Write Edge Writing Workshop now!
Good morning, Write Edge readers! I have a brand new book review for you. I’m sharing my thoughts with you on The She Stands Alone by Nadine Keels. Here’s an excerpt of my review:
Author Nadine Keels creates a likeable enough protagonist in Sheridan Jones, but Sheridan spends too much time in self-deprecation. While readers appreciate a character who can laugh at herself, Sheridan doesn’t miss a single opportunity to make a cute quip or offer a snarky observation of her life. Given that the story proceeds in first person, readers get to hear every single one of those observations.
Good morning, Write Edge readers! We’re closer to Christmas, and that means that the curb-width platform we’re walking now becomes thinner. As much excitement as the holidays bring, they also bring a little bit of chaos. Proceed with a deep breath and a spreadsheet (for you REALLY busy readers,) and some of that chaos comes under control.
Maintaining balance in our every-day life also allows us the freedom and the opportunity to unleash our passions as we work toward our life goals. Yes, you should definitely keep those goals in mind, even at this time of the year. You can find some wise words to this effect by going to “A Writer’s Heartbeats”.
Last week I launched Prairie Sky Publishing, the publishing arm of The Write Edge. Please do check it out, let me know what you think of it, and do sign up for the Prairie Sky newsletter. You can get two free stories for signing up and a special introduction to the world of Prairie Sky.
I’d also like to introduce you to a new post. Because I’m taking a short hiatus from my own writing, I want to share the work of other talented writers. You can find it now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop.
On Wednesday I’ll share with you my review of a short story a very kind author sent to me. My review is long overdue, but I’d like to post it this week. Come back to The Write Edge Bookshelf find out what I thought of “The She Stands Alone” by Nadine Keels.
This Thursday I’ll share more writing from other writers, and on Friday I’ll have a brand new Chart for you on Growth Chart.
Have a great week, readers!
