Let’s Play Bridge vs Driving on it


The “bridge verses bridge” came up because of the working title of my novel in progress–The Cascade Bridge Lottery. Someone asked me if there is a bridge (one you can drive on) named Cascade Bridge. A few wondered if the bridge that collapsed in Mount Vernon was called Cascade. Being a bridge enthusiast, it had never occurred to me that the card game I referred to in my story, could be misidentified as a roadway over water. My characters, four couples, were working toward a “grand slam” in the game of bridge and not a structure, especially not the one that fell in the river.

To avoid any confusion, I decided to change the title of my novel to The Cascade Winners. I’m hoping my characters will continue their bridge game and win a lottery too.
