What is some advice you would give new writers?
Gretchen Perkins: just let it flow. if you try to make things perfect, they never will be. if it feels right to you, write it down, you can always go back and change it. and don't listen to a damn word your high school creative writing teacher says, cuz if they are like my teacher, they don't know what they are talking about.
