I Have To Tell Everyone ... Skip Worries About Me!

I write to tell my characters' stories ... I don't put words in their mouths ... I write real. By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee.

I HAVE TO TELL Everyone ... Skip worries about the words used in my stories ... I told him my characters are like that ... it's not me!

I don't talk like that ... but when I write I have to write what I see in my mind and what ... I see, hear, sense ... as I tell the story. Their life is like that ... and I know when my characters are very scary, demented, crazy people ... they sure aren't going to act ... lily-white. They aren't worried what others think.

Don't judge me by what my characters say/do ... if you do ... then that's just an excuse not to like me ... that's something you would have to cope with. It doesn't bother me. Any writer I know ... goes on to write their stories not caring what someone thinks.

I told Skip when I write ... not to hear the words used ... 'feel, see' the story in his mind ... that's what story-telling is all about ... not sitting, judging every word used. They are stepping stones to get the imagination working so, the readers can see the story ... forget they are reading.

But ... if anyone reads and sits thinking about 'the words Gloria uses to write her stories' ... that's all the reader will get out of it. Relax ... enjoy ... let me tell you a believable story with ... real people ... real words. After all ... that's ... real life.

Think about ... the things ... you do ... in your private life ... you know what I mean. :) <3 Life goes on ... there are sadly some very sick people in this world ... just like my characters. Don't judge my words when I tell their stories ... it would be best to always be alert around you ... pay attention to those people you ... never see ... :) 

Gloria Faye Brown Bates The strange thing is I care ... that's why ... I bother to reassure my readers I'm not a foul-mouthed heathen :)
