Dear fellow writers:

I need you! As I write this, I think about the WWI posters featuring Uncle Sam pointing a finger. I need you! Well…I need you if you write a certain genre. legendsofgreenisle.com is branching out and adding a new feature – An Author Spotlight page for those who write YA/Adult: Fantasy, Epic Fantasy, Futurism, Dystopia, Steampunk, Sci-fi, etc. In today’s world there are so many creative individuals who have new stories to tell and I’d like to help by providing a little free publicity.

Please send me an email to greenisleauthor@gmail.com so that I can contact you with interview questions and link information to your book. The author spotlight will run for one week. During the week tweets and other postings will be made daily. The author’s interview and links will remain on legendsofgreenisle.com until any author requests to have it deleted.

Looking forward to hearing from you. My twitter handle is @GreenIsleAuthor if you would like to check out my followers. I’m hoping that by adding this author spotlight page we can grow a good following for new publications in the above genre.

 

Equal Opportunity versus Equal Results

Many people know that I am a Kurt Vonnegut fan. I loved “Slaughterhouse Five,” which is based partly on his experiences as a POW in WWII. Not many people though are familiar with his short story “Harrison Bergeron.” Written in a time before our school systems became an equal results playing field, I thought it ever so poignant that we studied this short story (which was made into a 26 minute film, titled “2081”) in the 9th grade Civics class that I am a student teacher in this semester. When discussing the message behind the film, I was surprised that the children actually picked up on the dystopian views of Vonnegut’s story as well as the true difference between equal opportunity and equal results. In my personal opinion, our utopia of freedom, which started hundreds of years ago has now changed. When you watch this film, ask yourself this question, “Am I for equal results or equal opportunity?”
