Never before have there been so many teachers telling so many students how to write. This is very good for the teachers. However meager the money, teaching is a paying gig and a subsidized education. Nothing helps you understand something like being forced to explain it.

Have you gone to writing school, or have you just naturally been a writer? What do you think of the boom of writers? Does it make you feel like what you do is less than what it was before every Tom, Dick, and Harry wrote pieces?
