Charming Cherry Blossoms

How nice it is to write to you after an afternoon in the sun

ear Reader,

I hope that you are doing well and that your weekend is going to be sweet and joyful. I took a sunbath this afternoon while walking in a park, and a cherry tree charmed me with its beautiful white and fragrant flowers. I couldn’t help but touch the petals with my nose. Cherry blossoms have the gift of melting my heart. They are so beautiful!

I was wondering, what readings have you enjoyed most this week on Scribe? Feel free to share your impressions in response to this letter!

To make a small excursion outside Scribe, I wanted to draw your attention to two stories that I found interesting. They talk about creativity, writing, and books. They are short but useful, and they were both written by a renowned author, Susan Orlean. Have a look at The Infinite Well of Creativity & Teach Yourself to Be a Copycat. I’ll tell you a little secret: among the days I like the most, there are those where I alternate between writing and reading my books, from morning to night. The crazy circle, but so good: the more I read, the more I want to write, and vice versa.

Tanya Buchko Green was the featured writer this week in the column, and I hope you enjoyed reading her poems. If you missed them, here they are just for you: Show Me What I Am Longing For. Passion’s Partner. Human in Progress. You Are Made of These. Love Unattended. Beginning to Heal.

Starting today, I am pleased to introduce a writer who joined the publication very recently, and who brings a nice touch of freshness on the fiction side, since she has published only short fiction. Andrea Cherkerzian will be happy to count you among her readers! Get a breath of fresh air by reading her first stories published on Scribe, all listed in the column until next Sunday: Chocolate. Snowflakes. Pink Plastic Sandals. My Girl Tiffany. Kitchen Queen.

On my side, I talked about how it feels to write: Like a Drug. And a cup of fruit made me write this haiku: Coming Days.

Thank you again for being here, and keep playing with words! ♥︎
