The Daily Tales of Gregg Savage

​Once upon a time, in a world dense with even the most mundane of stories, there lived a story bursting at the seams to be told. For any decent story, however, it wasn’t enough just to be told, they had to be heard, and that’s precisely what this story wanted. The more people that got to hear a story, the better for the story, but most stories believe that being heard by one person is better than never being heard at all.

It’s difficult to describe the pain a story feels when it cannot be told, let alone heard, but it is a pain the builds up over time. Meaning that the longer the story goes without being told, the more painful it becomes. It is a sad day when a story that wanted to be told fades away into nothing, never knowing what might have been if it was…

  1. This is why these stories are called “orphans”….
    But there is another side-effect to not-telling a story given, and that is fearing the commitment to its “truth”…. telling a tale some might not be ready to hear. And in that vein, there is a new story collection out called Not-So Stories by David Thomas Moore which reveals the Just-So stories many of us grew up with but are now told as they were originally intended, in minority voices. Read it and see why truth belongs in your fiction, and fiction belongs on the page being read or on the lips being told!

    1. KC, you are utterly, completely, and profoundly saying what many others will not say, because these others are afraid of being ostracized, losing their friends and their cohort groups. Many authors don’t want to lose their audience, instead of believing that telling the truth is quite often a catalyst for change. Fear has always been the bane of truth and that is why there are many untold stories. I have never worried about what other people might say. Storytelling is the most powerful way of getting truth and/or lies into the public consciousness. Unfortunately, lies can be just as powerful as truth. Thank you for your wonderful comment. Karen 🙂
