Sounds like an ominous warning... does it mean to be intimidating? How do you take it? What advice would you give to someone who wants to write but isn't seasoned? I think the quote is great advice but in a scary way.
For me, that quote just means we need courage to write what's in our hearts. I wrote from that "scared" place for a long time. Once I realized that I couldn't listen to all those inner critics, I kicked my writing up a notch.When I heard Cynthia Lord speak at an SCBWI event a couple of years ago about the challenges of writing the truth when it's very close to you, I was inspired. Thanks for the question. Now you are inspiring me to think about the topic!
