Mindy, this is pretty good advice. I think I’m coming around to this idea of just writing for me. And now that I’m writing more often, I’m starting to care less about getting criticism.

I think that at some point, I’ll crave it again; it’s cyclical. But in the end, this writing has to be for me. That way , any audience I gain, I won’t have gained by contorting myself into some weird position that I can’t hold for long once I have an audience reading my stuff.

Thanks for reading; thanks for writing.
