Something different for today's episode. Most writers spend far more time editing and rewriting the stories they tell on the page than the stories they tell themselves about their writing experiences. Too many writers do not question the stories they tell themselves about rejection and acceptance, talent, intelligence, luck, and craft. Many of the stories I've heard about the most common experiences all writers face do not serve the writer. Today I'll offer a new story about writing, a story about how everyone is born with whatever they need to tell any story they want. Don't miss it!
