Writing is such a solitary activity. You are alone, for countless long hours with people who are not real but seem totally real. For a time, they become your best friends and worst enemies. So, when finally it's time to share them with the world, your tiny world expands... and it's terrifying. You are giving other people a glimpse inside your mind. What will they think? Will they love your 'people' like you do? Or be bored with what you thought was a riveting adventure?
So it's so wonderful to receive positive feedback from readers. Thank you Deb and Vicki for your kind words. They mean more than you will ever know.
