I don’t know if you know this, but I’m a writer. Sort of. I self-published a couple of books and have also been in three out of the four Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers’ Soul books and a couple of magazines. Because I’m pretty much an unknown writer, I get really happy whenever people compliment me. So I was extremely happy when, in response to last Thursday’s Trifecta Challenge entry post, I got a bunch of great comments. Here are some of them.
“I love the humor and the sass in this piece. And I adore the line, ‘She was as happy about being average as most people were to be unique.'”
“Love the Casanova/Steve Martin description! Perfect tone for a total sleaze ball.”
- “’Casanova and Steve Martin rolled into one cheap cigar of a package.’ i loved that line.”
- “John Updike said, ‘Prose should have a flow … It should feel like a voice tumbling into your ear.’ This piece certainly does that. Well done.”
I was as happy as a little clam. Add that to going to the food trucks on Saturday and not having a panic attack in public (okay, I drugged myself a little) and my happy was easier to find than usual. Now if only I could find myself an agent!
