You know what is awesome? The person who said this to me is someone who I only met last Thursday and who I only talked to for maybe ten minutes. She is the cellist in the band I posted a couple of entries back…and she just put into words exactly how I feel and want to explain to people what writing is all about! So thanks, Rachel, for the amazingly encouraging words!
