Thanks for Listening
I was paid one of the highest compliments of my writing life today after class. Someone had said that while she was driving home she was wondering what had happened to those two characters she was thinking about, and wanted to go home and read the rest of the book. It turns out she was thinking about the first two chapters of MY book I had shared with the class. She actually wants to read more, not out of classroom obligation. I was giddy.
You see, I always wonder if people are paying me lip service because our class is so damned nice to one-another. This proves that while most probably still are-she isn't. I am elated to find I might one day be able to affect a readership. Yay for me.
