"You can certainly write," she said.
I will certainly take that.
She did say a lot more besides, about the state of the market, what sells and what doesn't. And how important America is. Some of the news is a bit depressing - we know what sells, and we know not all of it is any good. I ended up wondering what to do with this inside information, because as a writer I can only write what comes from within. My inner muse pays no attention to the market whatsoever.
