My life as a writer began in third grade when I wrote a poem, titled, “My Mare and Me” to express my longing for a horse. The satisfaction that came from putting feelings into words. The affirming feedback from readers helped to launch a living and a life.
All of us need positive feedback. We can also benefit from critical feedback offered constructively and respectfully. I have learned a lot about people, personalities and their intentions through their feedback and the way in which it is delivered. I’ll bet you have too.
My columns appeared the last four years in the Saturday op-ed section of the Battle Creek Enquirer until March 11, 2017 and on their website (search Jan Corey Arnett.)
