It is always good.
quote; My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way-Ernest Hemingway.
writing tip: Oh gee whiz! Another fool asking their family to critique their writing. OMG! please never do this. Your family sees you through a certain lens, one which can always be improved upon. You are cheating yourself by letting your family read your unfinished work. Hemingway says, write what you see and feel in the simplest way. That is the truest part of you and only you-you don’t need family to validate who you are. The nice thing about it is,once you have completed and published your book your family will be in awe of your accomplishments. If they aren’t tell them to write their own damn book. There will be excuses, believe me.
