What to do if no one reads what you write.
Shaunta Grimes

Advising someone to write well has not ever worked, to my knowledge. You can advise them to give it their best, to try harder, to explore further….but neither you nor I can admonish someone to be good at what they do. Anyone who writes a blog can call themselves writers, but that doesn’t assure a professional polish of their work. It has never been a case that quantity leads to quality, but there are surely lessons we can learn along the way.

Some writers bore me to tears; others inspire me. Most critics probably don’t dwell on method, but on product. Of course, I’ve had lots of critics of my own contributions, so I have come to realize that our own opinions of our own works are not fungible.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
