There weren’t many stories up for critiquing at the bittersweet table of judgment this month. This means there wasn’t a huge amount of feedback to become the meeting takeaway. The coup de grace is that the best bit of advice given this month was something for my own work, and – since it is something I’m struggling with I can’t really do a post for you all explaining the nuances of something that I myself need to buckle down and do some extra research on.
And that’s what I think is an important takeaway for all of us: we are all of us still learning. Even the person who you rely on advice is still learning about something. Never rest on your laurels. Keep striving. Always work to be even better. And don’t let the fact you don’t know everything stop you from keeping on writing.
