If you are a writer, one of the hardest things to do is feel confident about your work. You are always doubting whether you are good enough. If the story you want to tell is important enough. Will readers get what you are trying to say? Will you get what you are trying to say? I go through this every other day, it seems. And every time something happens to make me believe in myself. Yesterday, something happened. Or should I say, someone happened.
Writer and radio personality, Claudia Moss, asked me to answer a few questions for her blog about a month ago. I was happy to do so, and felt honored that she would want to interview me. Well, I was not expecting the glowing piece that she wrote about me. She not only talked about my books, but she included a picture of herself taking my In The Mirror Challenge. She photographed herself smiling with an electronic copy of In The Mirror. Then she posted the questions I answered. This is by far the best write-up I’ve ever had. I feel like a New York Times Best Seller. But to say that is to negate the respect women like Claudia have for my work. With this beautifully written piece, Claudia made me understand that I am a Best Seller. That my work is important. That my readers get what I’m saying. That I get what I’m saying.
Writers don’t get heartfelt, honest praise like this every day. And so I want to take this opportunity to thank Claudia for this special gift, which has made me see beyond the Best Seller list and see me, a writer.
I Love You, Claudia.
