Kids growing up

Changing with the seasons

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! The seasons have begun to transition here in Illinois, and our extended summer is bowing out in haste to make way for fall (I hope it’s fall; I’m not quite ready to welcome winter yet!) As the seasons change, so do our perspectives. Sometimes, when we experience a major life event, a change like this is a good one.

To that end I’ve posted this week’s motivational quote. Anyone who knows me well will agree when I say I’m an optimist, so this week’s inspirational words shouldn’t surprise them. Find the quote now on “A Writer’s Heartbeats.”

I’ve also posted this week’s fiction. It’s a flash piece, so that means no excerpts here. It also means a fast read. :> Check it out now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

In the middle of the week I’ll have two book reviews ready for you. The first is a book that caught my eye when I went to the library last week. It’s called The Windfall and is by Diksha Basu. The second book is The Eye of the North and is by Sinead O’Hart. You’ll find my thoughts on both books on The Write Edge Bookshelf this Wednesday.

I won’t post writing prompts this Thursday because next week we’ll get to enjoy a brand new writers showcase, but I will definitely be posting a new Growth Chart on Friday.

Have a great day and week, readers!



Parenting experiences now posted

Hello, Write Edge readers. I’ve posted my latest Growth Chart for you. Here’s an excerpt:

She looked at me but didn’t say anything. I think she just wanted confirmation that I wasn’t feeding her a parent line, that I meant what I said. Something in my face must have given her the reassurance she needed, because she scampered back to her place on the sofa.

Thank you for reading this week, readers. Have a good weekend, and, please, do everything you can to stay safe.
