I went to book club recently, and I told myself in the car not to bring up writing or my book. But I made a comment about the ancient Egyptian worldview, which I've been learning about for Book the Second, which led my friend to bring bringing up my new book.
This dear friend RAVED again about my writing and my ideas and how so very clever and imaginative I am, and on and on. I blushed and got through my elevator pitches.
But man, it feels so good to have someone get excited about my book. It feels so good after rejections and the ever-present fears of what may never be. I've missed a lot of baby showers and Pampered Chef parties to write this thing, but to this friend, it was worth it. It spoke to her.
This friend is a naturally exuberant person, and I feel narcissistic when I'm around her. But it feels good. Yay for positive people.
I can do better than that. A-hem.
YAY for POSITIVE PEOPLE!
Who are your cheerleaders and how have they helped you? Can you tell them I want to be friends, too?
