Thank God, WordPress.com offers a password option.
What does this mean?
Simply put, it represents a chance to present original work at your site which is not visible to everyone.
Bit by bit, I am taking advantage of this opportunity.
If you are a reader, and would like to access certain pieces at littlebarefeetblog.com, there is a password which I can give to you.
Please, go to my About page, find the email address, email me directly – and, I will provide you the password. But, first, you must offer me a short descriptor about YOU – in case we do not know each other, personally.
Then, click on Short Stories. The password protected installments can be found there.
p.s. isn’t Obama right on the money, at this moment? I’m listening; are you? Feels like a Gospel Meeting, frankly.
Hello, dear readers.
A word, if I may, about writers and their characters.
It is my opinion that any writer will derive character from a blend of personal, observational experience and imagination. As such, any writer who rejects this is denying the very enterprise itself.
If, at any time, you think you see either yourself or someone you know in a work of fiction, trust that the writer likely knew somebody very much like you or created a composite out of several individuals. The beauty of storytelling is that it mimics life itself, but the truth in such stories lies in the messages they carry and the value derived.
So, next time you take a novel off of a bookshelf, remember that nobody lives in a vacuum. We all express our strengths, weaknesses, challenges, and dreams every time we enter the fray. Perhaps your life, viewed through the eyes of the next author, will be of benefit and service to someone else. That is both the point, and the purpose.
Yours in the story,
Ruth Ann Scanzillo,
Dear Fellow WordPress.com bloggers:
Within the past couple of days, an Anonymous poster has entered Comments regarding two of my blog entries, both of them “thanking me for the post.” The tone of both these comments suggests that I am sharing the work of somebody who chooses to remain anonymous. However, in both these cases, the pieces are my original material.
Has any one of you received anything similar, at your most recent blog posts? If so, could you please comment, using your own WordPress.com accounts, so that those of us receiving these can be identified by WordPress.com ?
Thank you, all!
Your fellow blogger, littlebarefeetblog.com
