I have bragging rights

I did some powerful writing today. If I can write fiction that stirs my emotions, perhaps it will stir reader’s emotions as well. In fact I had to stop writing because my blood pressure was rising and I couldn’t take the suspense. Well then, I’m patting myself on the back. But I must be humble. The reader still has to wade through the rest of the book, invest in my protagonists and hate the antagonists to get to this, amazing piece of work.

Allow me a little brag. If you don’t love what you do and do it as well as you can, then why do it? If for no other reason than to please you I think.



  1. I think its a pretty good indicator if YOU are deeply involved. There are scenes in my books that must be sub-conciously autobiograohical cause although I've read them aloud hundreds oif times, doxerns before an audience, I still can't stop myself from crying. Other "impartial" readers have reported that these same scenes touched them as well (although most likely not as dxeeply). So... trust your gut!

  2. Brag away!

    Writing a moving scene is hard work. If we can't sit back and be proud of our achievement, then it is a poor show!
