This month, my contribution to the Writers’ Vineyard is about finding the heart of your story.
Not just the story you want to publish, but the story you want to live:
If we focus on what is essential about ourselves as writers, we can let the rest go. Follow all the suggestions and feedback we get, as long as they don’t compromise the heart of who we are as writers. We can give our own writerly selves the same care we give our stories: protect the heart.

“Learn what is essential, stay true to the heart of who you are as a human being. Be willing to let go of everything else.” Very nice line right there Good job!
Thank you – easier said than done, right? 🙂
Haha, definitely. Still a good reminder and something to work towards.

I read the whole article on ‘writers vineyard’…wisdom gleaned from your words: be a learner, and craft it into your work of (he)art. Every critique group should read this!
