Good morning, Write Edge readers! Another week has gone by with missed posts. I realize it and know that some of you are wondering what’s going on. Others probably understand that summer vacation often means the boat gets rocked a bit.
Sometimes we’re blessed with an abundance of good things, and that brings with it a new set of challenges — namely, finding time for our life’s passions and goals. This week’s motivational quote deals with just that. Even with an abundance of good things, we must find time to drive forward in the dreams that keep us up at night. For more on this idea, go now to this week’s motivational quote on “A Writer’s Heartbeats.”
You’ll also find this week’s short piece up on the Workshop. It’s a flash piece, so no excerpts today, but it may help offer some clarity on all the good things acting as “obstacles.” :> Find this week’s micro essay on The Write Edge Writing Workshop.
In the middle of the week — yes, yes, I know I promised one book review last week. To make up for it, I’ll give you two. :> Not only will I share my thoughts on Colum McCann’s Letters to a Young Writer, but also I’ll let you know what I think about Kristen Lamb’s The Devil’s Dance. Find both reviews this Wednesday on The Write Edge Bookshelf!
Next week is the last Monday of the month, which means no writing prompts, but I’ll be sure to post my Spurts this Friday on Growth Chart.
Thanks for your patience, readers! Have a great week!
