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.
