Great Writers Take Great Pains

It takes someone really willing to dissect themselves in order to develop their skill, to be a fantastic writer. Blogs like Bernita's An Innocent-A Blog is a wonderful example of such a writer, and those that flock there every day with same intent.

These are people serious about what they do. People who want to know what makes a story tick. What makes characters work. What little nuances help create atmosphere. People with a genuine desire to be great writers.

Bernita's blog is great for yet another reason. Her topics are presented with such flair and style as to make them a delightful read while demanding that you open your mind and probe its recesses for the truth, and the pain.

Blogs like hers, and the others like it, can only make writers stronger, and their stories better. It's a wonderful world we live in now, with the techno age, and the ability to communicate in such a large scale way. It has given to aspiring writers such an awesome opportunity. One that had never existed prior. I for one, can't wait to see what developments come in the future thanks to computers, and the Internet.

This is undeserved - but encouraging to read.

Thank you, Miss Write.

Aw Bernita, you are much too modest.

Way too modest. Bernita! You have a wonderful blog. It inspires, teaches, gathers the good stuff and the good people and it's great.

I agree! I can't do a blog like Bernita's, but I'm always envious.

I have three methods of communication:

BLOGS ARE BEST LEFT TO MY WRITING

QUICK TOPIC IS BEST LEFT TO MY DIARY ENTRIES

E-MAIL IS BEST LEFT TO MY ABILITY TO REALLY ANNOY THE SNOT OUT OF SOMEONE--IF THEY DESERVE IT.

Otherwise...

It's standard communication with the world around me. (And the Secret Service--seeing that I'm such a fan of their visits now and then. (But that's another story entirely. Not to worry: I'm not in trouble with the government--yet. :0) )
