Tale of Two Cities

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,…”
I’m currently reading The Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. It is one of the classics which has been on my reading list for a while. All of my leisure reading of other works ultimately helps me in my writing.
When I curl up in my chair to read, one of the things I’m noticing is the very different writing style of the time. There are lots of descriptive words used throughout the text. It is Dickens style and was the way that things from that era were written, but it can make for a bit of a project to sift through all of them to get to the story line.
The story takes place during the French Revolution. It is really neat to let a story take you back to that time and read about how people lived. I’m about 120 pages in and very intrigued.

Another episode of my short story, It is all about Kate will be coming your way soon!

Plans the jet set life for others as an aircraft scheduler by day and coordinates a family life for my fiancée, two kids and a dog by night. Writing is a passion that I can't let go of. I struggle to make time to write, but I keep plugging away at it. I have lived in Minnesota all of my life and continue to love the four seasons and ten thousand lakes the state is known for. Some of my favorite places to write and create are by many of those lakes. Be sure to look for my first published book, The Hard Way, on Amazon.com.
