A bad review….

…..doesn’t mean you didn’t tell a good story!

On the author pages I belong to on social media, I see comments from authors distraught that someone gave their writing a negative review. In a profound way, when I read these comments, it pains me.

When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does not take into account the blood, sweat and tears the author put into crafting their story.

When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does not take into account what drove the author to tell their story.

When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does not take into account that the author has a great deal of pride in the story which they told.

When someone reviews a story , the odds are their review does not take into account that the author is a person with feelings and emotions.

When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does not take into account the author is a person who may have taken strong inner grief, joy, anguish, love, or betrayal and put them into a story to share with others.

When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does not take into account that the author is baring their very soul to the world to see.

When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does not take into account that the author bleeds from their very soul to tell their story. 

When someone reviews a story, the odds are their review does not take into account that  most authors do not write for fame, glory or riches – but simply because the author needs to write.


“Who the hell am I?”20190630_1305207795170130459536580.jpg

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.
However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to please visit my website,

ShortStoryScribe.com

and/or Amazon Author Pages

Joe Leonardi              Scono Sciuto

if you are so inclined please
purchase a copy and leave a review.

I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell. 

Thank you,

Joe
