With global warming and all the disruptions it brings with it, I wonder if we can still talk about seasons today. From one day to the next, temperatures can vary by as much as 10 degrees and the weather is changing as never before. I just wish I could reverse the trend.
I can’t wait for the first flowers and sweetness of spring to arrive. I love when daffodils come out of the ground, usually in March and April in our woods and forests. It’s always an opportunity to spend some family time in the great outdoors.
Did you have a good week? For my part, I wrote this story, Certainty, that was curated by Medium in Poetry. I hope you liked it! I have also had the pleasure of publishing three new short fiction stories, by Bridget Webber, Oon Ren, and Leona Brits, which you can discover in the week’s selection at the end of this letter or in the fiction page. You seem to like this format, it’s great!
Moreover, Scribe has passed the 7,500 subscribers this week and continues its exciting journey in the land of words. Thanks again for being part of this amazing adventure!
I am perfectly aware that my editorial choices make Scribe grow at a relatively quiet pace, but I would never betray the soul of the publication to try to explode the audience and compete with others that are growing much faster.
My goal is not to flatter my ego by running after the views with stories that have been seen and reviewed a million times and that reflect the absolute emptiness of their authors.
Scribe is different, and always will be.
This week’s column was dedicated to Lynne Nardizzi. I hope you enjoyed discovering or re-reading her stories. For the next edition starting today, I chose to highlight Sylvia Wohlfarth. One of her latest poems is part of your weekly digest!
Enjoy your Sunday, and keep writing!
