In confidence

“You will be glad to know that there comes a time when you no longer care as much as you once did about what other people think of what you write. Now you write primarily to please¬†yourself. After many years of practice and of being your own worst critic, you see that when you are ready to let a piece of writing go, it is because it really does have merit.¬†Nothing has changed except your perspective, and your knowledge that you’ve earned the right to feel the way you do.”
