Sometimes I get comments on my works-in-progress that “it reads like a Lifetime made-for-TV movie.”
And other times, when I’m working on a story and know it’s not there yet, I get this:
“speaks to the souls of those who wish to know the human condition, and leaves us with all the possibilities of life – achievement, happiness, risk, disappointment, humor, devastation.”
“beautifully written — *sigh* why can’t I have such a grasp and command of the English language?”
And I think to myself, I’m not there yet but maybe I’m closer than I think.
What encourages you to keep going?
