A note from Rhett DeVane

A note from the Writers4Higher blogger

Rhett DeVane

July 4th, 2012

Through my affiliation with the writing community, I have met some of the most outstanding people. We support each other in this often solitary and lonely calling. And it is a calling. Most writers will tell you, they don't do it for fame or money, but because they feel compelled to gather words, tell stories, make some sense of the world around them. Truly, writers hold the key to change.

When I started this blog, I had no idea how much I would enjoy learning about the human side of my fellow authors. Over and over, I am surprised by the people I thought I knew well. Such big hearts, these folks, and they don't often crow about the things they do for others.

On this day in the United States, we celebrate our independence, our freedom. Many places around our world do not share the luxury of free speech, the ability to put thoughts down without fear of prosecution or imprisonment.

For this, I am highly grateful.

Thanks to all of the authors who have taken their time to join me on the Writers4Higher blog. You are golden.

And to those who are waiting in line...the response has been phenomenal!

My best to all of you, wherever you are on the planet.

  1. Nice words, Rhett. Happy Independence Day to you, too.


  2. My sentiments exactly. I can't tell you how much the connection means to me when I get on line. I love reading the posts in your group. Have a great day!!
