Thanks for your generous comment and the heads-up about Dorothea Brande. I was unfamiliar with her work, but Becoming a Writer sounds like a good read. I’ll be sure to add it to my reading list.
I must admit though, the passing on the good of other writers was a part of prompt for this post. But the writers I mentioned made it a request that was easy to fill.
One question, what did you mean by “satisfying”? Granted, I understand the meaning of the word, I’m curious as to how this essay satisfied. I’m on this quest to understand what it is that resonates with my readers.
