There’s a balance of whose advice you should take. As author Rebecca Renner shares on this episode, when your grandmother says you can do better after reading your first novel, that’s some wisdom. Especially when you wrote that novel at 16 and it’s about pirates with superpowers.
If someone tells you the only thing you can do with an English degree is teach, don’t listen. Rebecca made that mistake, but eventually, course-corrected and writes for a living. Enjoy this episode, and if you need any advice, hit her up on Twitter!
