Honoured though I was by her comment, I'm not even close to being an expert. There is too much left to learn. And honestly, I don't think I want to be an expert at this stage in my life. Maybe at the end, but not now when the thought of learning more still sets my stomach to fluttering. As my career moves forward, I'm going to get better and better and better. It's exciting knowing that.
So, my question is: are you a writing expert? Does an expert have to be published? My high school English teacher wasn't, but I still think of him as one of the most knowledgeable writers I know.
And if you are an expert, how do you know you are?
