Isn't that the truth. We can't see quite so well what we're doing with our own stories. I guess that's because writing is more fun when we begin organically, which leads us down into storylines less traveled, which, while fun, may not serve the whole. And it takes someone else to tell us that doesn't work. I look forward to reading your stories. Cheers. ~ PJ
Hello there Anthony of the fine memory and many languages
You are most welcome on John's innovative SPP where all of us are inspired to write, even if we do not write here. Your writing journey sounds like mine, and the secret is if you knew from the start you are a writer it will out sometime. Even if you have to publish your first story at 42, like I did. I never stopped writing, I just never published a novel again until now.
Also, I think we are not supposed to consult on our own stories. But we have to believe in them; who else will?
