  1. Good point, Kim
    We shouldn’t say more than is needed to continue the narrative when something is implied. I remember writing in an essay, “I watched my nursing supervisor come down the hall towards me.” You commented that all I needed was, “The nursing supervisor came down the hall.” No need for “I watched” or “towards me.”
    Another time I wrote, “I turned around and walked back home.” You commented, “You can do better than that.” Yep.
    That’s the type of criticism I prefer, something that can help my writing move.

  2. Hi, Greg! Thank you for the kind words. That last comment I made to you sounds a little bit snarky, haha. Well, you know I meant it with all respect. I always love reading your stories.
