Got a lovely email today. Thought I’d gush about it for a moment. It’s nice when something works out the way you hope. The idea behind my book was that it would be helpful to people.
Here’s the email I got.
“Your book took my first act from 90 pages to 25. Your book enabled me to create a great first draft that was read by a major player last week. Things are now in process and he said that he will read anything else I have. Thank you for your contribution.”
Someone saying they’ll read the next thing is not as good as a check or an invitation to the weekend house in the Virgin Islands, but it’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
I think I’ll knock off for the day.
