So, the Big Red Car is a writer, published no less. As a writer, I attend writers’ groups in which you read others work, besmirch them with red ink, write indecipherable comments, drink extra large lattes, and your work gets read and savaged.
Haha, it doesn’t get savaged. Sometimes, it just sucks. Sorry.
But, sometimes, some little piece will be written with some standards or you do a little exercise.
