Tinge – #AtoZChallenge


My dog adds a smattering of love to my life, and a sprinkling of privy to my back yard.

It’s no surprise that I love words. They are why writing, to me, is such a glorious challenge. Finding just the right one is like discovering a hidden treasure. It’s like fitting in that piece of a thousand-piece puzzle that I’ve been looking for for hours. And what makes it such a challenge? It’s the tinge a word can put on a feeling. The morsel that’s as small as a speck. The discomfort that’s really a vexation. The gladness that turns to euphoria. And the exhaustion that leads to zonking out.


No, seriously. I’m going to bed. Winston’s making me jealous.

Would you like a dash of amusement in your day? A pinch of jollification, perhaps? Then buy my A to Z Challenge-inspired novelette, “All Good Stories”! It’s a romantic comedy about two best friends who belong together – Xavier knows it, but Jupiter has her eye on another guy: a shady character named Bob.

“A delightful read!!” ~ Cheryl Lynn Roberts, 4 stars, Amazon Canada review

“A short funny tale of two friends” ~ Ritu, 4 stars, Amazon UK review

“Quirky and charming.” ~ Bobby Underwood, #11 top reviewers on Goodreads – 5 stars

  1. Cleverly done ,Linda. That is why I love words too. They can give such joy to others 🙂


  2. I am feeling ready to take a nap too, but I had to go visit some of the A to Z spots first.

    • Lately, I’ve only been able to get to WordPress late at night. Ah, for the days I could read other blogs! But I may get there again soon. You never know. 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by, Kristin. 🙂


  3. Winston looks like he’s been in one of the meetings I have to attend. A tinge of boredom, properly handled.


  4. Loved this Linda I so agree with every word 💜💝


  5. Hope you get good sleep!


  6. I feel a twinge of jealousy over Winston’s sleeping too. *yawn*
