I don’t say that often enough. Went to a meeting with them last night, and they caught a lot of things in my manuscript that I hadn’t even thought about. PLUS, they are highly interested in finding out what my characters do next; they always want more. That’s such a boost! To hear that someone is invested in my characters, that they really want to find out what happens next is just the best feeling in the world. It’s why I write, really. I mean, I like to write. I like to tell a story, but to tell it, I need someone to tell it to, even if that’s just my writing group and a handful of wonderful friends (for now ^_^).
Having my wonderful writing group also helps me keep my dream in mind. One day, someone who is not already a friend will pick up my book (having no obligation to do so) and will read it. And if that person likes it, if that person craves more, oh man, you’ll have to mop me up off the floor. I’ll be a happy little puddle.
If anyone reading this blog cares to comment, what are your writing dreams? What scenes in your mind keep you going? And if you’re not a writer and are reading this blog anyway, what dreams of the future keep you moving along?
