Spotting the Rookie Writer

[image error]

Being a rookie isn’t a bad thing. That’s how all of us start after all. No one embarks on a career as an expert in their field. But what kind of rookie will you be? Will you take constructive criticism and use it to improve or will you brush it off because you know better? Will you get angry and defensive after bad reviews or will you use them to fuel your quest to be a better wr...

" This review will contain spoilers... and profanities.

Okay, one star then.

“Bravery does not exist in a vacuum. Bravery is not the absence of fear but the ability to recognize ones fear and to master it.

-Dawn Nolan, Eve of tomorrow (coming soon)”
Michelle Lynn

Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me
