One of my favorite parts of the "schedule" for the workshop from the article:
“Re-embrace Your Inner Critic.” Using advanced transference techniques, you will pretend to read your work to the most discouraging person you know: the relative who says “Who do you think you are? You’re not funny”; the friend who never got around to reading your short story; the scary professor who always gave your essays a D. You will learn to love them all as they do their best to keep you from typing out another word.Anyway, I'm off to school. Enjoy the article!
Perhaps that little voice that keeps murmuring in your ear that you have nothing of worth to say is really onto something!
