Review of, Tell Me A Story In 99 Words, by Annette Rochelle Aben

It’s early morning and a welcomed cool breeze drift in from the open window. Every now and then, I pause to watch dawn’s ever-reaching hands pushing away the night. Meanwhile, my fingers clack the keys as I try to muster the words to do this book justice.

It has been a desire of mine since I was a young person to write stories. I had to start somewhere, so I chose to start by writing very short stories. That being said, I welcome you to a collection of short stories, very short stories as each of the stories is only 99 words in length. Meet memorable characters. See something of yourself in many of the scenarios. Experience a wide range of emotions. Be inspired to write stories of your own. Return to your favorites and enjoy them again and again.

Just My Thoughts:

The flip of every page brings a fresh journey into a different life. Written mostly in first person, I loved the ever-changing perspectives. Interpret Nuns through the eyes of a child in, A Most Holy Experience, or spend quality time with hungry grandchildren in, Chocoholics.

These tales play out in everyday life! A key character could be sitting on the bus next to you, scooting past in the grocery aisle, or staring back in the mirror.

This book is a roomful of trunks, their hasps straining to contain countless personal triumphs and struggles, all proficiently conveyed in 99 powerful words!

I recommend this book for everyone with a pulse.

Say, “Hello!”

Words are like threads that when woven together with passion and purpose can create a tapestry in which you long to wander. That passion was ignited in me when I was a small child and continues to burn bright even today. I was encouraged by educators who challenged me to try and by career paths that demanded I become a proficient wordsmith. I would like to think I have done them proud. Over the years, I have won awards, been nominated for an EMMY for television writing, and penned a #1 Best Selling book of poetry. My collection of books available here on Amazon include self-help, inspirational, and of course poetry. I have been invited to participate in anthologies and collections, several of which are here as well. Welcome to my world of words. Should you find something in which to lose yourself, I shall raise my glass in a toast to your happiness. Thank you for your kind attention.
