I agree with you 100%, Lisa! I don’t even bother reading that shit anymore. I read fiction, poetry, and personal essays/creative non-fiction and I write the kinds of things I like to read.
I have no book or online course to flog and probably never will. I’m here because I’m a storyteller and I truly believe that if I continue striving to become a better writer by telling my stories and putting them out there in some kind of consistent way, I’ll find my tribe.
I believe you will, too. Hell, you’ve already found me. :-)
