...is the most marvellous thing.
My husband finally read my book.
We'd made a pact that he'd never read my work until it was published - of course, I never expected that to happen quite as fast as it did. And suddenly, after months of me blocking the computer screen from his sight everytime he walks past it (I can't STAND someone reading my draft form - unless I've got it to a certian point and send it to super-cyber-cp Jude)... he got handed this little book.
He read it - cover to cover in one hit - and tells me he thinks its great :)
No wonder I love this guy.
Nothing else matters. Readers, reviewers, nada.
My hubby thinks its fab and that's good enough for me.
This is the guy who gives me hours of time so I can write, who has always said 'you can do it' - no matter what. Who never, ever fails to give me the lift/push/kick in the pants (KITP) when I need it.
Just the thing I need right now in fact!
Everybody should have a support person like that - someone who believes in you more that you do yourself - to keep you going when those damn doubts are weighing in.
Actually, this is a theme in the current wip. The wip that's proving to be a real DOG at the mo. Good thing I have the hubby to give me the KITP!!!
