Writing can be a largely thankless task. You slave over your words, crafting them into a book that you then timidly reveal to the world. It’s a slow, arduous process. Many ignore it, others promise they will buy and review it, but never do. Then there are the negative comments, the unnecessary remarks and the indifference of others who you counted as friends. Sometimes you wonder why you bothered. You question whether you should keep going.
Then a review like the one above pops up. Entirely unsolicited from someone on the other side of the world who you don’t know. Yet your words somehow resonated with them, your characters spoke to them, lifted them up and took them to a better place. A place where the underdog, the misfit, the outcast, can be the hero and save the world. Thank you Joelle for believing in me. Thank you for restoring my confidence in the process.
