Thank you for visiting ToAHotelSomeplace. Please leave a comment or critique. They are much more helpful than a simple “Like,” (although Likes are nice also.) Ruth is available on Amazon and Kindle
I created ToAHotelSomeplace to promote my book of Ancient Fiction short stories, “Passages to Ruth” and as a platform to publish more generic short short story fiction (Less than 1000 words.)
I belong to a writers group at Temple Or Rishon. This group provides positive criticism to works presented each month. Not everyone reads their works, but most do. The comments provided after the reading must fall within three categories: What did you like? What will stay with you? and what was strong? Every month we are offered a writing prompt to help start the writing process. You may use the prompt or not. I had not used the prompts as previously I was busy finishing “Passages to Ruth” and simply read excerpts from those stories. In October 2017, with the book put to bed, I used the prompt, “Summertime, and the living is…” I chose to write the story behind the wonderful song by George Gershwin. – Read More ->
