An Observation in Six Sentences

by Joseph Grant

Oscar Wilde once said something akin to Hell being filled with editors and in as much as this may be true, there is one noble exception: Rob McEvily. Wilde obviously did not know Rob, the bel esprit patron saint of struggling and unpublished writers everywhere, six continents at a time (who counts Antarctica, as Rob hilariously pointed out awhile back). Rob has been untiring in his efforts to promote new and maybe not-so-new writers and he has given us a place, a community in which to belong. Rob is accomplishing something that editors at maybe better-known sites and literary reviews have not - he has given the good, the bad, the happy, the sad, the high-toned, the down-trodden, the self-doubters and egoists alike, a sense of place. So no, this six is not a story, but an observation, and while it is not as verbose as one of my fictional stories in this manner of a six, it is only rightly so as I could easily surpass six sentences to say it, but the author kindly respects this editor’s guidelines. It would not be fiction to write that all of us owe a great deal of gratitude to Rob and we can truly say in six words - thank you so very much, friend.
