Long Gone

Second book review now up!

Posted on Updated on

Hello again, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my second book review for you. I’m sharing my thoughts on Long Gone by British author Paul Pilkington. Here’s the opening to my review:

A policeman puzzles over the disappearance of his daughter’s friend, despite his initial misgivings that she’s missing at all. The longer she’s gone, however, the more convinced he becomes that she didn’t leave town of her own accord. After a hiatus, author Paul Pilkington is back with another thriller in the excellent novel Long Gone, the first in a series starring Pilkington’s newest hero, DCI Paul Cullen.

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.”

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!
