Embracing criticism, embracing others.
John Markowski

I’m told that to write well, we need to stir emotions and debate in others, as long as we avoid deliberate offence or prejudice. A bit like gardening, anything goes as long as we observe the needs of our plants.

From a writer with much less experience than yourself, I’d suggest you write outside your comfort zone, like questioning a value or principle that sucks for some people.

Gardening can be a dirty job, but the therapy of doing it makes it all worthwhile. Much like writing rubbish, as I do!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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