it was amazing

Her writing style can be abstract but I found it incredibly inspiring. The way she describes how a story reveals itself and how plot and story work together really made sense. One of the things that we all struggle with is fighting to keep the work we have done, all those countless hours. Our drafts are "provisional drafts", which means that we will inevitably throw out the good with the bad, but that it is OK. She reassuringly says,"If its any good it's true and if it's true it will always, always come back to you." How cool is that!!
