Then peace be with ya, sista. I’ll try to have a reasonable discussion until I start to see a pattern.

EVERY time this person comments on something I write…EVERY TIME…he begins with “gee, that’s great…except for this one thing…so now I’m going to ignore all I found great and write a novel arguing against the one sentence I’ve chosen to your focus can be drawn away from any positive impact you hoped to make and towards defending this thing I’ve decided should become the focus of your entire piece”

Okay, I’m obviously paraphrasing…

But for me, the fact that this happens EVERY TIME regardless of topic or point or whether I’m writing something critical or memorializing a personal moment in my own life …

That IS circular.

I know one thing: you are a more patient woman than I am. ☺

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
