RE: The Dying Body Chronicles 6: A Man hunts

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

There is only salt for wounds inflicted in this story. It is a harvest of bitterness and pain. The innocent and the responsible suffer equally. This story may reflect reality, at least one reality, but it is a hard truth. Many of us, in order to get up in the morning and face the day, have to believe in a different reality, one that offers hope. That may not be real for many people, but it is psychologically survivable.

This is a brilliant story that does not invite the faint-hearted. But even they must look sometimes and realize there are hard truths.

Thank you for posting this story in the Ink Well community. Please be sure to read the work of other writers in the community and share comments with them.

I can only sigh. I really wish I could tell pleasant stories. I am oppressed with the desire to bring reality to fiction. To show the reader the dark parts that make the human being, mind and body, what it is. Our failings are ours to own. This is no god's work.

Hello @warpedpoetic. I wrote that comment. It was not meant as a criticism. You must tell the truth as you see it, or your writing won't be worth anything. Good writers write to an audience, but they don't pander. They tell the truth. That's what you do, brilliantly. But your truth won't be everyone's truth. Again, I wish you well.

I didn't take it as criticism. I took it as commentary. I was just sharing the intent behind my writing. As always, it is always a pleasure to read your comments. Thank you very much
