What a Differene A Week Makes

Wow – it’s true. Time is good for a lot of things. It gives perspective and lets levelheads start to come through. Wow, what a week.

Besides the action packed stuff (Val was in an electrical storm, Val was trapped in an elevator, Val was almost in a drunken brawl at the airport), the thing that’s changed everything the most is that I got that teeny, tiny bit of validation I was looking for.

I know, I know, we shouldn’t pull our worth from other people and all that matters is your own opinion but, come on, I’m a writer, that can’t ever be 100% true. And when I was feeling down I gave my book to someone to read and they loved it. As in couldn’t put it down, stayed up all night reading it, sent me an email at 2am to tell me how much they enjoyed it loved it. As in sent me a really long explanation on thier opinion and quoted parts of my book back to me loved it. As in is making their husband read it loved it. Gotta say, that is just the best kind of loved it that you can get.

And that inspired me to reread my book a little bit and rediscover what I loved about (dude, I totally forgot I was kind of funny) and reaccess what my genre is (though I still have trouble calling it romance because it does not end that way but romanitc comedy I’ll take). And, well, yeah – I have reread that email more times than I care to admit out loud. *guilty look*

Ahh, but what a difference a week makes . . .
