An editor wrote those three words on a manuscript of mine. I want to read the paragraph that was highlighted with those encouraging words to give you permission to write some lovely words of your own today.
How do you want readers to react to your words? How do you want them to respond? Is it okay to plan that? Is it okay to want readers to respond in some specific way? Here’s a response to a radio topic that relates to your writing. I’m not suggesting you manipulate people—but be authentic enough to cause your reader to respond. If you’re scared to do that, listen to this writespo!
