The New #Haiku #Challenge #Review Week 85!

Welcome to the new Haiku Challenge Weekly Review with Ronovan Writes. Brought to you by … The Word of the Week to Live by:

plural vi·tal·i·ties
1 a:  the peculiarity distinguishing the living from the nonliving b:  capacity to live and develop; also :  physical or mental vigor especially when highly developed

2 a:  power of enduring b:  lively and animated character

Word of the Week to Live by-Vitality

Narrowing the list down to 10 was a lot more difficult than I imagined. I had it down to about 17, then had to keep going. I think I know why I did all those links for so long.

For all the links, click HERE for the challenge post and the comments. All duplicates have been removed. In other words, if you click one, you won’t visit that same one again as you move through the list. I delete the ping backs of those who leave links in comments for the convenience of readers. The ping backs still work.

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling on AmazonClick the Image.

“Now, I want to warn you… this is not your typical pirate tale! It’s BETTER!”

The historical descriptions are done smoothly, and flow nicely without being to “teachy”.”

“What I found when I began reading was immediate engrossment in the cleanly written character of Captain Wallace, who is a seafaring man of high rank, with a conscious. That his first person voice is as confessional as it is kept me turning the pages. ”

“I enjoyed meeting the characters, kept turning the pages to see what was happening next …”

Captain Gabriel Wallace is a man with a moral code that is largely unwavering; a confident man who holds himself with pride yet humble. A romantic hero for sure! This is an entirely engaging and enjoyable read!”

  1. Ok, all read! A great bunch of Haiku! I can imagine how you found it hard to narrow down to 10! I guess we will all have to work extra hard now, to get in your top 10!!!!!!
    Thanks again Lovely Ron! 🙂

  2. Hi Ronovan. Thanks so much for including me in your list and I perfectly understand your need to change the format. I have been perpetually in awe of your capacity to give such generous feedback to us all for so long and having my own much less onerous challenge running I understand how time consuming it is. I am sure I speak for anyone who had been a regular follower of your stimulating challenge when I say thank you so much for what you do and hope that you find more time for your own writing as you would like. Very best wishes! TJ
