Hello, Write Edge readers! First, I’d like to say I’m thinking about the flooding victims in Kentucky. I would urge all of you who can to donate to charitable organizations that can get aid to Kentucky and other places affected by natural disasters.
It’s the last Friday of the month, and it’s also the fifth Friday! I won’t be posting any Instagram pictures today, and I’m sorry about not posting my book review earlier this week. Long story short, I didn’t quite finish the book on time. But I’m working my way through it and will share my thoughts soon enough.
In the meantime, I do have two fun things for you that only show up occasionally on The Write Edge. The first is my newest episode of Biblio Breakdown, my writing podcast where I take a book and use it to discuss writing techniques and tips. Today I took a deeper dive into The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill. Check out the latest episode of Biblio Breakdown to find out what this book did well and how you can apply it to your writing!
Also, because it is the last Friday, that means a brand new Growth Chart! Want to know what my latest parenting adventures are? Here’s a quick excerpt:
I have to wonder, though, if my older child having a cell phone has made me worry about her more.
Next week is August — eep! I can’t believe it. I’ll be back with more writing news and more reviews and stories and such.
Stay hydrated, readers, take care of each other, and do a good deed for a stranger this weekend.
Have a good one!
Hello, Write Edge readers! Those of you who have been long-time readers of the blog and particularly my parenting blog, Growth Chart, know that my children are summer babies. One of those “babies” (who is now about five inches taller than me, by the way) celebrates a special birthday this month. Keeping that in mind, I wrote today’s Growth Chart. Here’s an excerpt:
They say it’s the hardest job in the world, being a mom. Unequivocally, without a doubt, yes. On the hardest days of all, it’s a job that we wish we could escape for a few hours or a day. On the best of days, though, it’s good. So good.
Stay hydrated, take care of each other, and do some good, readers!
