- a small note: -
I know it’s highly unlikely that this will reach any of you, but to those deleting the numbers on the six word story posts, I can’t help but wonder why. Do the numbers somehow diminish the meaning? (a rhetorical question, but the answer is “no, not at all.”) The numbers are there partially for my own reference, but also for future traveling. They are as much a title as one might find on a poem. After all, most of Shakespeare’s sonnets are referred to by number. Now, I’m not trying to imply that my writing is equivalent to Shakespeare, but the point stands:
Please do not edit an author’s work. This extends beyond the work itself to include titles and references, notation and addendum. Don’t touch it. Just pass it along.
