From the creators of The Insecure Writer's Support Group,
Albert Camus once said, “The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.”
Flannery O’Conner said, “I write to discover what I know.”
SO<--- why do I write and tell traditional tales and myths?
I write and tell to inform readers and listeners of the other worlds of yesterday and how these worlds affect or effect our world today, changed history, an rewritten for people in power for control of people in a culture.
How we evolve is found in folktales, legends, myths, fables, cautionary tales, fairy tales and epics. My writings warn that these tales change to suit the ones who control the media which can be verbal, written, or filmed. The stories taken and changed from the cultures of primitives, the Hindi, Chinese, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Africans, Egyptians, Mayas, Incas, Mongols, Arabians, English and our American culture. The cultural writers give explanations of what is thought as real at that time and this time.
Reality has the same plots, characters, concerns, fears, and hopes then as now in the analogies of what is seen and heard as evolve by language, and technologies.
Always, beware of whom tells the tales and what is reality is use.
