    • Dear Bailey,
      Good insight. But even if you’re writing for yourself, you gotta tell yourself the truth–in a stylish, articulate way.
      Funny thing–writers all around the world say these same things. (Different languages, of course.) Good luck with all your writing projects. Let me know if I can help.
      Dr. John
