Jeanne Felfe

First of two book reviews up!

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! First, a moment to remember the lives lost on this day 18 years ago. It’s hard to grasp the concept that so much time has passed, but no matter how much time does #WeWillNeverForget.

*****

I’m sharing with you the first of two book reviews for today. I read Bridge to Us by Jeanne Felfe. Here’s the opening to my review:

A woman finds herself separated from her husband without warning; a man loses his wife in tragic circumstances. When they find their way to one another, they’ll have to decide whether they can forget their pasts and move ahead together. Author Jeanne Felfe leads readers through a sweet albeit anti-climactic love story in Bridge to Us.

Read the entire review now on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Also, be on the lookout later today for my second review. Have a good day until then!

Circling back to my routine…

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers! Well, I have to say, last week was not fun. Thankfully, I’m working on circling back to my routine this week, albeit slowly. All things happen for a reason; I firmly believe it. So I have to believe that this minor setback in my writing routine has happened for a reason too.

In the meantime, as I said, I’m working on getting back to my routine. That starts with our motivational quote for the week. Anything worth doing, people say, is worth doing well. Sometimes that means several attempts. Even the greatest artists knew this:

“The main thing I try to do is write as clearly as I can. I rewrite a good deal to make it clear.”—E.B. White

Next comes my attempts at writing after not doing so for about 10 days. I don’t know if this is necessarily one of my favorites, but it was reassuring to put my fingers on the keyboard again after so long. Check out an excerpt from this week’s short story:

“This is ridiculous,” her father said aloud, getting to his own feet. “The debt concerns Master Warren and myself. Kia should not be included in this conversation at all.”

“Father!”

“No, Kia,” he said. “The debt is mine. The choices I made to incur it were mine. The repayment will be my responsibility as well.”

Read the whole story now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

In the middle of the week, I’ll share two new book reviews with you. The first will be of Bridge to Us by Jeanne Felfe; the second will be of Long Gone by Paul Pilkington. Come back on Wednesday for both new reviews on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

On Friday it’s back to a brand new post on parenting adventures. Find out what happened with the girls when I got sick. Check it out on Growth Chart at the end of the week.

Have a fantastic week, readers!
