So I just finished reading Flannery O’Connor’s short story, A View of the Woods. I need not say any more. I had no idea that, the image I had in my mind of how O’Connor’s work was supposed to be like, versus what it is . . . wow. Quite frankly, some of her stuff is downright frightening.
So, I’m going to say that my brief inurement on Flannery’s haunting prose MADE ME MAKE A VIDEO that appeared to demonstrate my head being blown off.
Yeah . . I know. It doesn’t work. But anyway. Back to books.
So the other day, I said I had named my protagonist. And today, I want to say what my character is like. WHY–am I paranoid about sharing things? I’ve noticed many authors are literally posting their work in giant swaths of words all the time, with no fear of being ripped off.
Seriously. I need advice.
