Thank you for hosting me on your site today, Bernard! I hope you are well.


John, I agree wholeheartedly - writing is a privilege and one that should not be taken lightly. If we're gifted in this manner, we should work hard to ensure that we are always delivering to our highest potential. If we are not gifted in this manner, but still have the desire to write, if you want it badly enough, if you work hard enough, in the end, it just might look as if you were "gifted" all along :)

Bernard, thanks for hosting John today and thanks for being an awesome 4WillsPub host!

I love this post, John. I learned some things about Ray Bradbury that I did not know. And what a passion and dedication he had to visit the libraries and educate himself as an alternative to a University. Very thought-provoking post and YES, writing lets us know we are ALIVE! Thank you for hosting, Bernard!

Bernard Foong

It is always a pleasure to host a fellow author, John. Your book is on my to-read list.
Best wishes to you and all the best on your book tour.

Writing truly is a privilege. That makes me think of how many cultures suppress the voices of its citizens, through writing and other means. It makes me remember when women had to write under alias male names because female words were insignificant. We are privileged to be able to write our thoughts and our stories and share them with the world. I hope we never take that gift for granted.

Excellent insights, Yvette! Thanks for your support today!


Such true statements, John. I've read a lot of quotes made famous by Ray Bradbury, and they are always spot on. Thank you for hosting, Bernard!

Joy Lo-Bamijoko

Hi, John, I have always wanted to write stories. I read a lot when I was young and was intrigued by the stories I read. I swore I will write my own stories one day! Thank you, Bernard, for hosting.
