This post is especially for all the newer or more uncertain writers out there. The ones who are frozen while working on their manuscript because they’ve read so many writing craft books and posts that they’re just afraid of messing up if they work on their story.
My sister had twins last summer and quickly found that there was something about a new mother that made experienced moms want to give them advice…on any and all topics. But every baby is different and every mom is different. I decided I’d bite my tongue and only give advice to my sister when asked for it. After all—what did I even know about raising twins? I had my babies 4/ ½ years apart and they’re getting pretty old now. And I’m forgetful.
