The other day I looked at a text from a fellow writer. I don't often critique others yet, as I feel I've got a long way to go. When I do give advice, it's with a heads-up of where I believe I am at in my learning curve.
Now this is going to sound mean, and it's not meant that way at all. But looking at her text? I knew how far along I'd come.
This is very satisfying.
It's always easier to see mistakes in other's text, but this was something else. I could see traces of where I was at about a year ago. Basic mistakes I no longer do.
I'm afraid there's little else to this post but the satisfaction of looking back at the road, and smiling at how far I've come (nevermind how far I still have to go).
Enjoy the weekend!
