it's february and this might brighten your wintery blues
OMG if he showed up anywhere near me...anyway. I've been noticing a lot kinda angsty, worried posts from writers I know. I hate that. maybe it's the long winter. maybe it's publishing or maybe it's just the mysteries of the ether.I don't know. I keep wishing for my chums to break out of it. a few days ago I had my bout of it and Super Editor brought me out of it. everyone needs a Dorrie. she's so awesome. she is my one person fan club. she said in an email that she was anxious to read how I had managed to bring everything together in my rewrites. that was one of the best things anyone has ever said to me. it gave my sagging confidence a much needed boost. I know it's an awesome story that IS different from other vampire stories but hearing an actual publisher turned editor say it is made my day.
