186: Criticism, Reviews, and Paying it Forward

April 14, 2021

IMG_3570.jpg

This week, Imogen and I have a lively conversation about:

  • The highs and lows that affect our parenting, homeschooling and creative lives
  • Criticism: why do we let other people's opinions affect what we do? Whose opinions should we listen to? Why we shouldn't let criticism stop us from using our talents
  • Reviews: why we don't ask for many reviews
  • Writing about things we have never experienced
  • Paying it Forward: is free online stuff really free? 

We're also discussing some books and movies.

And we're telling stories about:

  • how to remove a dead tree
  • cockroaches
  • how I might have made a difference to the lives of the world's dogs
  • and many other things
