It was just called to my attention that one very awesome person took the time to not only read, but also review, one of my stories Buried Alive: the story of Octavia Hatcher on Amazon.com. The reviewer says:
"This is a very short story, but a good one. It was short and to the point and
well written. It's hard to say it's a good story (which it was in regards to the
author) when it is a story of such a sad and horrible event. It's also hard to
say I would recommend it because I know a few people who really could not read
it because it would bother them too much. It should be considered a horror story
based on a true event.
So with that said, if you can read about horrible
events without it bothering you very much then I would recommend this short
story because it is so well written you almost feel like you are going through
the same events with Octavia and her husband James."
I'm thrilled to have such a postive and honest review of my work! Thank you to all who have taken the time to read my writing. And please leave a review if you like it. :-)
Your Story Dies With You
Your Story Dies With You. It's rather self-explanitory, but anyway, the idea is that every person on this earth (that's right, every last one of us) has a story to tell, and it should be told before it's too late. For thousands of years, storytelling has been a central part of how humans have communicated--stories have been passed down through generations, sharing knowledge, family history, and the odd tale with a moral that was forgotten years ago. Everyone has a story to tell, and you should tell it, now while you have the chance, because your story dies with you.
