“What, exactly, did I learn during “The Novel”?

I learned how to admire my own work. I used to hate everything I wrote; now I see it with different eyes. Alongside this, I learned writing techniques that I find very useful. Now I know more about how to analyze other people’s texts, how to be more objective, and how to better understand what makes me feel what I feel when reading.

It was very useful to get a clearer picture of what kind of reader/writer I am.
I felt understood and represented.”
