I am in awe.
Wednesday’s blog post topic, giving advice to the lovely and talented 11-year-old Rebecca Riter, was a phenomenal success! I want to thank each and every person who took time out of their day to stop by and help out.
I knew the online writing community was supportive of fellow writers, but I honestly had no idea of the amount of support and encouragement everyone would bestow upon Rebecca.
She’s thrilled and her parents are gushing with pride. (Her brother, however, still thinks of her as just a sister 🙂 )
Seriously everyone, your comments and advice went beyond my wildest dreams and I sincerely thank you for helping to make Rebecca’s first foray into “writerland” a wonderful one.
And now I’ll stop gushing and move onto Writing Quote Friday…
Today’s quote comes from John Gardner…
In my own experience, nothing is harder for the developing writer than overcoming his anxiety that he is fooling himself and cheating or embarrassing his family and friends. To most people, even those who don’t read much, there is something special and vaguely magical about writing, and it is not easy for them to believe that someone they know—someone quite ordinary in many respects—can really do it.
