And the concept of reading another writers work is refreshing and an excellent way to get pay homage to other writers. Debra is insightful and generally does a good job guiding the discussion, but she has a habit of fake laughter that really detracts from the discussion. It makes her sound insecure and sometimes stops the readers from saying more because it takes the impact out of their idea if it’s serious.
