And I so needed that to shake off the blog scare that stopped me from writing anything. I mean how does one blog? Apparantly - like this!
Since T-man already posted, I'll start with him. He is awesome. We love him. If it wasn't for his support and constant "you guys rock!" mantra, we never would've got this far in the book as we did. I mean we wrote it man! What more could there be?
Uhm...selling it perhaps? To precious little YOUs out there :)
Then, there's Humzy. She hasn't commented here but I'll mention her not only because she is Aoife and she is Demon and she is all the characters in the book but also because if I didn't - I may end up dead ;)
Humzy and T-man: you guys rock!
If you have begun to think this is a fawning-over-personal-thank-you note to my friends then yes. It is. But there's also something to share here with every reader out there. We writers need support. Lots of it. We need encouragement. Lots of it. So if you have a friend who has promise to shine in this field, don't hold back! Praise your friend. Tell them how awesome and rocking they are but also, don't forget tough love.
Humzy was never indirect about what she liked or disliked about the book. Her critique was honest. T-man read all but wrote back only when he had something to say and it was always worth listening to. So, be someone's T-man and Humzy if you get that chance.
Your writer friend will love you to bits for it!
