I am so touched when I receive emails that share with me how my writing has touched others.
“I’m working my way slowly through your book. (I’ve read nothing since my brother’s death 6 years ago; I used to be an avid reader but now it takes me all my time to remember what I read after the page is turned).
Can I just say that you’ve written my life in so many ways? Not exactly the same experiences or people, but the feelings the emotions, and you’ve actually put into words what I was struggling to even acknowledge.
Thank you. So much. From the bottom of my heart.”
I find this so touching for so many reasons. Ultimately as a writer what I aim to do is to share my stories and the stories of others in an honest, open and heartfelt way. I try to trust that this will allow my creativity to reach the hearts of the people who most need to experience that story at that time.
