I've written poetry, a couple short stories, and done a ton of creative writing throughout the years; however, I've never seen myself as a "writer." Now, I've set my sights on "gracing" our blog with book reviews as a way to not only get my creative juices flowing but a means to share my extraordinary wealth of knowledge with our readers (yes, there is a ton of sarcasm in that statement).

Author Covers Life and Shares Lessons

Christine Rice's Essays for the Soul is a culmination of the author's experiences and lessons shared with readers. One might expect such a short collection to be limited, or an exploration into self-glorification; but this book is neither.

Writing the essays was a means of expressing my thoughts and questions I had about writing. There is also a well-structured essay about combating writer's block.

Other essays in the book were originally written for an online audience and are more technical in nature. Topics include healthy eating, a personal story about perfectionism, adult educ

I did not think these essays would be so lame. I felt like I was reading a journal or being lectured. The author does write well but these essays are no-brainers and pointless.
