 Diary of Céline Jeurève, February 12, 2048 Charles: how I miss him this maverick husband of mine, he who sends me those erotic little messages that never fail to affect me (in a sweet way)!

The Edge ~ An evening with friends

 Prologue  I know the three of them well, as I crossed their lives at different times, before we met again, that February, in London. How I came to be in possession of those pages is, perhaps, the material for another story.

Small patches of frost-free grass appear along the hedge…Continue reading “#Diary of a #Writer – December 11”

#BlogMeMaybe: May 21 – May I tell you something about writing?

I am really excited by Gillian’s announcement – so much so that I re-blogged her post! On my one attempt at the genre I sought and receive some comments from that most creative of bloggers… Which decided me to rewrite it, perhaps as a teaser before a submission, he says, pondering. For now, a lady friend,Continue reading “#BlogMeMaybe: May 21 – May I tell you something about writing?”
