A reader’s blessing…

Today I’m blessed again.

Aren’t these words the reason a writer goes on every day? “Opened his veins and bled until words came out.”

“In the tale, in the telling, we are all one blood. Take the tale in your teeth, then, and bite till the blood runs, hoping it’s not poison; and we will all come to the end together, and even to the beginning: living, as we do, in the middle.”
– Ursula K. Le Guin

Today I’m blessed by a reader, again.

“Mo, I’m […] from the […] Amazon thread. I don’t usually write and semi lurk but was blessed this morning and felt I needed to contact you regarding your book Daimones. My gut screams out “Tell MO DON’T STOP WRITING” . My husband bought me a book from my wish list for mothers day, and it happened to be yours. While waiting for my father this morning I started it and have been compelled to read/re-read then contemplate and read parts again. No I have not finished and am actually taking my time getting through it, which is unusual for me. You had captured me within the first 10 minutes of reading! Rarely do I not speed read through a book, but I do not want to miss anything and have been going back and rereading and stopping to absorb what I have read – to consider the future story line! I LOVE IT!

Please don’t stop writing, your gift is too precious.

Thank you for sharing your gift with us! I look forward to completing this book and anticipating future offerings!

“’Tis the good reader that makes the good book; in every book he finds passages which seem to be confidences or sides hidden from all else and unmistakably meant for his ear; the profit of books is according to the sensibility of the reader; the profound thought or passion sleeps as in a mine, until it is discovered by an equal mind and heart.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Readers are the most important persons for a writer, and often they do prove us just that, time and again. Did you receive a personal message for a reader that made your day? Share the love.

Elements of Style

Narrative is a different kind of prose. It’s not journalism, and it has to render rather than report. O Tempora, o Mores,  what is accepted today as good narrative prose is different from books and novels of the past. Flowery prose, pedantic descriptions, passive voices that were part of the accepted narrative styles of even half a […]
