My Favorite Things: My Beautiful Grand-daughter and Excerpt from Perfect Love

My grandbaby“Once upon a time,” Will began, “there lived the most beautiful girl in the whole wide world. She had the most beautiful mom of all the other moms. Her dad wasn’t really that handsome, but he had this great, great love for his daughter. Every night before his daughter crept into bed, she had to have cookies and milk to help her fall asleep. It didn’t matter if it was an Oreo, Vanilla wafers, or any other kind, as long as it was a cookie.”

He continued, “On one particular night at her bedtime, her poor old father didn’t have a single cookie in the cupboard to give to his darling daughter. In fact, there was not a single cookie or cookie crumb anywhere to be found in their entire house. The beautiful girl cried and cried Continue reading

Three Rainy-Day Poems

Write rainy-day poems!

Rainy days – I love them! I curl up on the couch and peer outside, watch the rain pour, listen to its drumbeat on the roof, hear “ping” on a tin can, see drops slip-slide down wet, slippery window panes. Rainy days – days when I’m so relaxed and calm that words, phrases, thoughts, pictures, and emotions run rampant. So let the rain fall, glide, slide, hop, skip, drop, slither, ka-plop, pour! Bring it on!

Poems, whether created on a rainy day or not, appear somewhere in each of my books. It’s how my writing began – with a  poem, then on to short stories and then to novels.     

1. What Greater Love

What love is greater than a mother’s,

For a mother’s love is faithful and true?

It shelters, protects, influences, guides.

It is far-reaching, knows no boundaries. Continue reading

Cookies, Anyone?

When writers write, pieces of truth or tidbits of facts from their lives spill onto the canvas, the written page.

English: a Oreo cookie broken in half with a s...

When my oldest son, the perfect baby, was nine months old, he learned to drink milk from a cup. But every night along with his cup filled with milk, he expected a cookie. Any kind of cookie would do – Vanilla wafer, Oreo, Sugar cookie, Coconut Macaroon…From those facts, I penned a scene (published in Perfect Love, my first novel) in which one of the main characters, Will, tells his daughter Breanna a bedtime story.

Welcome!

        Hello! I am Arsoleen Woolcock – author, mother, reader, lover of books!! 

          Have you ever read a book, loved it, and wanted to know more about the author? Have you ever been full of questions, such as “How long did it take the author to write the book? Where did the idea come from? How often does the writer write?” That happens to me all the time. Then, of course, there I sit Google-ing author facts. 

         The purpose of this weekly blog is to showcase books and to take a behind-the-scene sneak peek into the lives of authors who bring us their tales,stories, and books. So I hope that you will tune in to discover another interesting read, another interesting author, and their “wryterly” advice on writing. Also, I will share with you on The Wryters’ Block a taste of my own writing through poems and short stories.

          If you find that this this site has something to offer, I personally invite you to subscribe! Connect with me on Facebook! I welcome all comments and emails. You can email me at arsoleenwoolcock@arsoleenwoolcock.com and, of course, here at The Wryters’ Block.

          Before you go, I’d love for you to comment on my new blog. Yes, the question has to do with the name. As we all know, it’s not a good feeling to have writer’s block. What do you think of the name The Wryter’s Block? Leave me a comment. I would love to hear your thought!

          In the meantime, Happy Reading and “Wryting”!!

         Arsoleen Woolcock
