Damsels Overcome soon in bookstores

 

Both males and females are important in social norms. I'm making a case about the male narratives that dominate - take the fable Turtle and the Hare; all characters males. Masculine pronouns lock us into male narratives and male norms. 


DAMSELS OVERCOME has 22 folktales from different times and many countries. Included are blurbs about my identity and dispute with the narratives about the damsels who appeared in these traditional male-dominated dialogues written in literature and folklore from the 6th to 18th centuries.

Launch date is April 30, 2021.

Why I don't finish reading a book!


Being a writer, when am I reading someone else's work, I stop reading because these frustrate my reading; too much backstory, long descriptions that are not necessary for the story, and the dialogue much too long like a  lecture, or too short, or not with the character's personality.

These stop me because I had too many writing classes and told too many stories. One might say this also stops most of my writing.

I have also noticed people listen to books on audio, or read short novels of 15 to 30 thousand words. I think because of our films and television we are more illiterate than the past generations and more images to read with movies and computers and television

However, what do I know? - This is just a bobbieism!
