There's a little something all storytellers are looking for; affirmation. They want to know their story has reached someone, that they're not just talking in the dark.
And I've been kinda lost in the dark lately. I know my book's out there, that people have bought it. It's out with reviewers, but no word back yet. It's a frustrating time this early on.
But then I get word back from someone who read it, and they loved it. It was excellent to hear.
It was just what I needed to get through this early start.
