How’s it going? Last post, I said I’d mention something surprising that my cousin said to me before we left her wedding reception. This won’t be a long post–mostly because I still don’t know what to think of it.
Let’s get to it.
After the hug goodbye, Samantha said something to the effect of:
“I love your encouraging stuff on Facebook. You should keep doing that.”
(Statement subject to doubt because it’s difficult for me to hear over music sometimes.)
But I think that’s more or less what it was.
And I’m still a little shocked by it.
It’s a strange thing for me, to be honest. As writers, we want people to enjoy what we write, which means they have to read it, and then get something out of it.
But for some reason, it’s still a shocker to me when someone I know admits they’ve read something I’ve written.
And I have no clue why that is. Maybe it’s because I think of my writing as something for “other people,” like people who I know personally would never read anything (when they probably read all the time).
Maybe you feel something similar with your writing and people you know? Drop me a line in the comments–I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Until next time,
