I am taking a course at UTexas called Kickstart your Novel. Last week I brought in a sample of my story and a few classmates and the instructor took it home in order to critique it. Normally the instructor critiques your writing while you are in a small group setting. But for reasons I won’t go into, my writing was critiqued in from the entire group.
The instructor is kind and has a way of delivering a critique without squashing your dreams. Overall it was a favorable review by all who read it with one classmate saying it was the best thing she’d read so far in class. The instructor pointed out my good word and phrase choices. An example, “Michael casually shredded her life.”
I have the most difficult (my therapist would say impossible) time accepting praise. I sift out the good and only keep bad. Silly, I know and I’m working on changing.
So who knows, maybe I will someday realize my dream and be a published author.

Sure you can. Just keep at it. Unfortunately, I am at a stopping place now but will be back on board as soon as I relocate.
Glad you got favorable reviews. We can do anything if we really put our minds to it. I hope life is treating you better these days. Anything is possible with God in our life. I’m pulling for you and wish you the best. God Bless. Go wow them.
