Book review postponed

Posted on

Good evening, Write Edge readers! Full disclosure: I thought I would have finished the book I wanted to review for all of you, but I haven’t. So I’m postponing my review until next week. Keep your eye out for it then!


The holidays are coming…!

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers! Yes, the holiday season is almost here, and, like so many of you, I’m as busy as a bee trying to get everything done. I’ve made lists, both mental and on paper, and am trying to remind myself to breathe long and deep when I think the list is too much. It is possible to get things, I keep reminding myself. I just have to knock the items off the list one at a time.

In the middle of all this is my commitment to all of you and The Write Edge. This time of year always gets dicey, but I’m doing my best. Make no mistake about that. And, really, even with all the insanity, the holidays also hold a certain kind of pleasure. A beloved figure from my childhood had a few words to share on that idea. For this week’s inspirational quote, go now to “A Writer’s Heartbeats.”

I’ve posted my piece for this week, but this time around it’s creative nonfiction. A couple of weeks ago I got the opportunity to do something I love doing (something other than writing,) and I’ve been thinking about it nonstop ever since. Here’s a quick excerpt:

…[E]very girl has to shake her hips a little when the beat demands it. Not enough to shock or titillate. Just enough to make people grin in delight.

Read the whole piece now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop.

On Wednesday I’ll share my thoughts on Where the Stars Rise, an anthology with science fiction and fantasy stories by South Asian writers. It’s the first time I’m reading this sub-genre, and I’m curious to know how this turns out. Find out what I found out in the middle of the week when you go to The Write Edge Bookshelf.

I’ll post new writing prompts for next week’s short piece, and at the end of the week I’ll post a brand new Growth Chart.

Have a great week, readers!
