a little celebration…

From my editor…

Woo-hoo! On the right track!

What you don’t see in this image is the response. The oodles of questions. The push to think deeper.

What you don’t see in this image is the reflection. The round about conversations that finally (finally!) got to the heart of the matter.

This is the rejoicing part.

Celebration is much more than just rejoicing.

Response, reflection, and rejoicing all rolled together, often over time is what keeps writers going. That’s genuine celebration. (This is the topic of my next book, written with Christi Overman.)

And that’s why I force myself to write even when I don’t wanna.

  1. Thank you! It's these kinds of things that keep me writing. You know, though, I'm pretty sure my VERY FAVORITE kind of feedback is comments to blog posts. Thanks for taking the time to encourage me. I appreciate it!
