I need to thank you because right now, as I finally write the novel I’ve wanted to write for decades, you keep saying exactly what that feels like. And explaining it for me, so that I can just send a link to my loved ones, and say, “Read this…” Instead of taking precious writing time to plead my case. So far, it’s working beautifully. They’re not happy that I’m so damned obsessed with my PC right now, for hours and hours on end. But they “hear” you, too. Blessings and write on, sistah…
