“Two Roads Home is an elegantly crafted, nuanced work that reveals how we stretch our bonds, and sometimes betray them, to belong, matter or survive.”
-Shauna Singh Baldwin, author of What the Body Remembers and Tiger Claw

I’m not a writer but a rewriter. Getting the first draft down is just the beginning. When I tell this to people who are just starting to write fiction, I think they’re relieved to hear it. No need to worry if your writing is crap, in fact, knowing it’s crap is a good thing. It’s the first step towards fixing it. You only need to worry if you can’t see that your writing is crap. Then you can’t rewrite it. If you can’t see the problems, you can’t fix them.
