“A tale of true love that will echo through the ages.” (description from Goodreads)


For a short story, Writing to Heal has a lot going for it. It’s a touching story of a man, Peter, sitting down to type up the story of his life. The reader knows from the beginning that it won’t have a happy ending.

I spent most of my time waiting to be punched in the stomach, so to speak, with this character’s tragedy. It didn’t disappoint in that way.

The writing of the story, itself, was  a bit off, for me. It tripped me up a few times when reading. The use of the passive voice occurred very often, which disrupted the flow, in my opinion. There were also a few other minor issues, that another proofread could fix, that added up in the end.

But still, in the end a reader will very likely be drawn into Peter’s life story, and cry along side him by the end.
