|my writing buddy Gail.|
This appliance is generally under-used by my fellow writers. They don’t seem to understand the full worth of the well-spring, or if they do, they don’t appreciate it like they should. I’ve seen this facility ignored, squandered and left to fade away in a dusty corner. Then the writer complains the resource has let them down when they needed it most, or that someone else is monopolizing it. They should be ashamed of themselves, for there is no finer writer resource. I am quite sure I wouldn’t’ve achieved any of my success without it.
My favourite writing resource even has a name...Gail. Yours should have a name too...Jim or Hilary or Sue. Because, in my opinion, the best resource a writer can have is a writing friend. A friend who knows the dark days, blank screens days, the evil rejection slips, the crashed screens, writer’s cramp and silent tears of frustration. They should do – they’re suffering too.
Naturally, they’ll expect you to be a writer friend right back. Gail and I agree...that’s like twice the resource. Double the result for us both.
I wouldn’t be without her, so...thanks, Gail.
