You know you've done your job as a writer when...
  • Mrs Bear
    A friend lent her paperback copy of 'Mrs Calcott's Army' to a dear friend of hers who has been very ill, and is going blind. Her husband reads it to her in the evenings when she's in bed. He's enjoying it so much he doesn't realise she's nodded off, and goes on reading, and has to go back a few pages next day. He wants to know when the next one's coming out.
    It's lovely to think that my words are giving pleasure to people going through difficult times.
  • That is so lovely, Mrs B. I don't think there can be a better compliment.
    Thanked by 1Mrs Bear

    Lovely to know you've written something with that immersive quality that can actually lift people above their circumstances.

    That's a lovely compliment Mrs Bear.
  • ClaudiaClaudia
    That is so heart-warming, Mrs B - it must have made you feel delighted and probably a little humbled.
  • Mrs Bear
    Definitely humbled, Claudia, but so pleased that they are both enjoying the book while they share their precious time together.
  • That's fantastic Mrs Bear!
  • A real compliment.
  • Yes, so rewarding for you. That's the sort of feedback we rarely hear.

    But Mrs B; you are sure the lady's 'nodding off' through tiredness? :D
  • Mrs Bear
    So I'm told, PET.
