Gratitude


I’m grateful for my husband. Right now he is my proof reader. I have my next book ready to go to the publisher. I’ve been over it carefully, looking for mistakes; and he is my final reader (after my critique group). He’s great to find typos!
He is also great to support me in attending luncheons with other writers, my critique group every week, weekend workshops, and sometimes, just spur-of-the-moment get together with an author who is in town. He never complains, and he’s always happy for me to go. (Maybe he likes me out of the house? Just kidding!)
Anyway, I’m feeling thankful for him.

Aw, your husband sounds great.
I have a great support network of writers and non-writer friends, and my hubby DOES read everything I write, but I'd never lean on him for typos :-) I do lean on him for a never ending supply of coffee and diet coke, and putting up with me.

hi miss christy! for sure its way important having someone for supporting us in our writing. for me i got a cool critique partner and other bloggers that help me lots. and my brother sebastian does all the editing stuff for me and all my family reads my stuff. all that helps me be a better writer.
