I remember as an acupuncturist being presented with something fairly basic in theory by my Jin Shin Do instructor. It was such a novel way of presenting it compared to what I learned at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine that it opened up a whole new way of thinking about theory.

While I have certain mentors that I learn a ton from and very much appreciate, sometimes it’s helpful to learn from other places and other people. They might just put a new spin on something I already sort of know but it makes it that much more accessible. I’ve learned a lot about writing in odd places and I’m always looking to learn more.

I think that that need to learn, that need to improve, the ability to not care if I write forty thousand words of garbage that I’ll toss, is the only way I can ultimately be a more successful author. It’s a journey.
