The interesting bits of life…

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! Spring is really moving across the area, and it’s such a refreshing change from winter. Every season has its moments to inspire us as we move along in our ambitions and goals. In spring, for writers, new ideas start to sprout and peek their heads out of the the subconscious. We want to take every-day instances and push them to be so much more. I’m working on a story now that tries to do that — straddle the divide between normalcy and the bizarre.

Most art, I think, wants to hold hands with both sides. Really, though, that’s kind of the fun…and the point, right? For more on that, find this week’s motivational quote on “A Writer’s Heartbeats.”

It’s the last Monday of the month, which means our monthly writers showcase. Hop on over to The Workshop and find a fun mix of first-world problems, poetry, and when a person learns to fly…literally. Find all of these stories now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

On Wednesday I’ll share a new book review with you. This week I’ll let you know what I thought of the recent release, The Star Thief, by Lindsey Becker. Find out what I thought about the book in the middle of the week on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

This Thursday it’s back to our regular schedule on The Workshop with writing prompts for next Monday’s short fiction, and at the end of the week I’ll go into my latest parenting “dilemma” when dealing with a child who has to come to terms with a loved one moving away for good. Find that post on Growth Chart on Friday!

Have a great week, readers!
