For those of you just stopping by the blog on a random Wednesday… haven’t you heard? It’s writer appreciation week!
As I’m sure you know, being a writer can be very difficult. Particularly with the amount of rejection writers have to face, whether they’re passes from agents or editors or receive one of those truly mean Amazon reviews written by those evil people who write truly mean Amazon reviews.
So. While this business can be rife with negativity, I would like to request that we forget all that tough slogging for a moment and share the love. Let’s say something nice about one or more fellow writers.
I’ll start. I’d like to thank my clients for being the most talented, professional, and hardworking group of writers I’ve ever met. I truly feel lucky to be working with you.
Oh, and Roald Dahl, wherever you are, you were my favorite writer when I was a kid and I know I wrote that fan letter to you in fifth grade and then you died that very same week, and I’d like to think that you read the letter before you passed, or, at the very least, that my letter wasn’t somehow responsible. It was a little traumatizing. You probably would have appreciated that.
