Especially the revising. People sometimes send me their work, and it's pretty clear they don't really want feedback or advice, but are just hoping for connections. If someone takes the time and interest to read your work, pay close attention to their impressions, try and learn from their feedback, and keep editing and improving your work.(less)

“EVERY MORNING, I wake up feeling older by so much more than a mere twenty-four hours. I open my eyes and everything seems blurry, as if I am encased”

“I wondered, not for the first time, how it was that bad people came from good people, and good people came from bad people, and why we bother to try to understand the difference.”
Laurel Saville, Unraveling Anne

“I couldn’t just bury the ugly parts of my past without also burying what might be the most important parts of myself.”
Laurel Saville, Unraveling Anne
