"Please remember that I am not a Fitzgerald expert. My posts are my point of view at a specific moment in time, I may get things wrong. Kind words and discussions are always welcomed. If I have made a mistake, politely let me know. I would like to keep Fitzgerald musings a positive experience. Comment Away....."First I want to say that most followers and commenters leave positive and thought provoking messages, and I treasure everyone. I hope you don't take offense to the new message.
However, every now and again, I do get a commenter who seems to stumble upon my site and leaves an anonymous comment. Usually, I get the feeling that they think I am an expert and have made a huge faux pas.
If you have been following me for any length of time, you are aware I am not an expert on Fitzgerald. I am not a literature scholar, or even a former English major. The purpose of this blog is not to give literary analysis on any of his work. I am not a biographer, I am not an expert on his life. I went to school for Earth Science and I have a passion for Interior Design. Again, not a literary scholar.
I have said it before and I will say it again. I am just one girl who loves F Scott Fitzgerald writings. I find a connection to and through his prose. I am on the beginning stages of my journey to read his work and find out what I can learn about myself through him.
I have taken to calling him "my Dead Mentor". But and expert, I am not.
I write what I think and feel at the time of the post. And, yes, sometimes I get it wrong. I am OK with getting it wrong. After all I am not perfect I feel learning is a series of mistakes.
Feel free to leave messages where my mistakes are pointed out, but please remember that kind words and discussions are far more effective than a know-it-all perspective. Especially, anonymous comments where I am unable to respond to your remarks.
Thank you for listening to my rant.
