Comments: I almost didn’t think I was going to make it this week. Last minute work came up that should have derailed me, but I had to send it back to the guy who’d given it to me for clarification and he still hasn’t gotten back to me, so voila!
This week I was given a very special gift. I was allowed by a fellow writer to help with her query letter. It’s something I do occasionally on Query Tracker, but there’s no real discussion between myself and the author that I give suggestions too. So being able to give my suggestions and the reasons for them, and then getting feedback from her that I cleared up some of the fog that had settled on her in the process. I’m not going to name names, in case she’d like to remain anonymous, but I’d like to thank her for giving me that opportunity.
So, thank you, it is an amazing feeling to know that you’ve helped someone. I no longer have any doubt of the reasoning behind my best friend’s decision to become a teacher.
