Into the last week of the month

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! It’s the last week of February — can you believe it? And for those of you who haven’t looked at the calendar recently, this year we get a Leap Day. What will you do with those extra 24 hours?

If you’re pursuing a passion or have your eyes on a goal that’s been burning inside of you for a long time, this week’s motivational quote will probably hit home. An extra day in the month means an extra day to explore and push ourselves to our limits, to make ourselves better. It means a day to challenge ourselves, as this week’s quote reminds us:

“Creativity flows when curiosity is stoked.”—Neil Blumenthal

Since it’s the last Monday of the month, I’m featuring other writers on the Workshop. Check out a piece of flash fiction, a long fantasy entry on a well-known publisher’s website, and a story that will make you shake your head at the way things would be done in “the old country.” Find these stories in this month’s writers’ showcase on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

On Wednesday I’ll share a new book review. Many of you might remember the ethereal actress Grace Kelly. Some of you might not know the full story behind that elegant onscreen persona. Author Kerri Maher did extensive research into the actress’s personal and professional life, and I’ll let you know what I thought of the novelization of the result. The book review of The Girl in White Gloves by Kerri Maher lands in the middle of the week on The Write Edge Bookshelf.

I hope you’ve been enjoying the new feature on the blog, Thursday R.E.A.D.s. This week I’ll share the last installment of my analysis of The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. You’ll also find that on the Bookshelf but on Thursday.

Finally, it’s back to parenting adventures at the end of the week. Find out what the kids and I have been up to on Friday on Growth Chart.

Have a lovely week, readers!
