Gone With The Wind

Panel 1

Why gone with the wind?

What a choice of title, some of you might wonder…but the fact that the name of Margaret Mitchell’s great saga, “Gone With The Wind,” is already unavailable on this site can only be indicative of its popularity across the years.

There are several reasons for my choosing this name. Christened “Melanie,” after the character from this novel, my very literary father inextricably tied my fate with this book and literature forever.

I have also selected this name with a sense of humility. As a writer, I write to express my thoughts and opinions on various issues always hoping to make a difference through my writings. Yet, I am conscious that nothing can last forever and so my words at the end of the day could just be gone with the wind.
