If I may be so bold, I wanted to suggest, to all authors submitting their work, to always remember the following:

- We, the writers, know you have put great effort, mentally and sometimes physically, into your writing. We appreciate this.

- We know your writing is often an intregal part of you, often, an appendage of your mind and heart and that only you can give it life.

- We know, depending on your personal character, your writing may or may not be above review and critique.

- As a writer, when you offer your work to the public, I implore you to be openminded to the course it must travel as it takes flight.

- To vehemently defend your writing from harm, opinion or scrutiny would capsize its growth, causing it to become a very lonely story, hidden away in the archives.

- Accept praise with grace, modesty, and warm appreciation.

- Be willing to accept critique with the same and your work will have life outside of your arms.

We are all authors, some more prestigious than others, and we have all put ourselves on the Writers Voice to be read and, hopefully, commented upon.

But this forum does more than that. If open to the heart and mind of this collective and very different group of writers and poets and others, oh my, your potential to create something beyond yourself becomes achievable.

The goal is to write and write good. It has been my lesson that The Writers Voice offers that option.

Thank you.
the coffee made me do it.
