I provide commentary (and hopefully insight) on my experiences as a writer.
Writing is a community activity; minimally, there is a writer and a reader and — most importantly — the transmission of ideas, albeit in one direction only.

At Writing.com, we have the opportunity to reverse that direction and make this a real conversation.

I am starting this blog to provide a third way of looking at that conversation between writer and reader, a meta-conversation, if you will. This is not a place to review works, but a place to review the communication between writer and reader. It is not my intent to critique the critics; I will not be providing specifics unless necessary. But I think it is important, especially for new writers like myself, to see that the relationship between writing and reviewing is not necessarily one-directional either. We all learn by doing and making mistakes. I make a ton of them. Sometimes I disagree when something is called a mistake but is, in my opinion, a misinterpretation by the reviewer.

Ultimately, of course, the writer bears the responsibility for writing prose that does not get misinterpreted.

I hope you find this useful.
