Stop trying to tell me how to write my stories.
Stop telling me I have to do this or I have to do that with my writing, ’cause guess what? I don’t.
I don’t mind friendly suggestions about ideas for the story or telling me your thoughts or you telling me stuff you think needs correcting. I appreciate that. I really do. I will talk about it with you and think and pray about your advice and/or suggestions, and if I decide no thanks, no hard feelings. I still appreciate you trying to help me. But don’t push it if I say no.
And don’t get all patronising if I say no to your idea/suggestion.
Don’t tell me what to do and don’t tell me I have to do what you want. This is my story, this is my style of writing. If you want it written the way you told me, then write a story with that idea. But leave me be with my style if I say no.
