Hi Anna-

When it comes to my writing I live and breathe Flannery O’Conners sage advice I will para- phrase what it means to me, “ once you release your piece into the world, let go of the outcome the piece now belongs to the reader for them to perceive however they will.” This perspective frees me from judgement (my own and others) to write what I want and how I want. Period.
