I just wanted to say that I had like six questions lined up to ask you in case I couldn't find an answer from Sir Google. But BUT I read one of your posts about doing your own research and I have happily answered those questions using Medscape (which is freaking AMAZING!!). So I wanted to say thank you SO SO SO MUCH for not only giving me the resources to do my own research effectively but for encouraging me and other writers to be creative with our writing and not just stick with the normal PT1
PT2 boring stuff. This blog has given me the courage to delve into serious research to maintain my story’s integrity and lemme tell ya, I FINISHED SOMETHING!! It was just a short story, but I FREAKING FINISHED IT!!! And it was this blog that helped me do that. So sincerely, thank you SO MUCH!!
This message nearly brought me to tears. Thank you, for telling me about all of this. It’s one thing to get praise, which is nice but is… external, I guess. It’s another thing to know that I fulfilled the purpose I set out to do – help writers.
I’ve always struggled with finishing things. I’m a starter but not a finisher – my classic move is leaving just one dirty dish in the sink, and I have untold archives of stories begun but never finished. So I know exactly how much it means to be able to say “I finished something,” even if it’s small or if it’s not that great or if you want to burn it immediately (ie, most of my work). And I’m both completely honored and amazingly happy to have been even a small part of that for you.
Congratulations and keep on writing! I hope it gets easier.
May the page rise to meet you :)
