  1. Great lesson. How I wish I’d heard it ten years ago. I naturally write like that, and have had critique groups and partners systematically cull all traces from my WIPs. From your podcasts I’m getting a strong sense of listening to myself. I feel freer to go forward with more passion and singleness of purpose. Thank you!
