Value of Listening

Writing group again last night. I enjoyed it a lot, and for once I didn’t have anything submitted. I also think I learned even more from listening and giving my critique of other peoples’ stories than I usually do from having my own writing in the discussion.

There is so much to learn that is easier to take in when observing someone else receiving the same advice. Certain things I could not take in easily when it was MY work being talked about finally sank in last night.

I’m eager to write, but wanted to take a moment to share this with you, because its something that makes a lot of sense to me, but which I’d never thought through thoroughly before.

If you need to learn something that’s close to your heart, learning it vicariously can be an easier way to work.
