Reply: What a great comment.  You have made my day.  Thank you.  I strive to be supportive when people are writing and creating because I beleive all success is positive based.  Being vulnerable is the route to truth in our work.  Vulnerability is a tender state to be nurtured and celebrated.

I share the support that I also like to have with my own work.   Anne

Anne,Thankfully you are one of the first writing teachers I have worked with. I can’t imagine being mentored by anyone who is not supportive, encouraging and inspiring- like you. Isn’t there a saying about “what bothers us the most about other peoples mistakes or problems is usually something we too could correct…” Perhaps you are so generous with your support because you are confident about your own work and that translates into finding the beauty in all of our work too (even when it is just newly budding beauty). Thank you for being here Anne.  Rita Zamora
