This Makes Me Want to Write More

Someone left this message on my FB author page the other day and it made me think. It doesn't matter how many likes, thumbs up, hearts, retweets, or smiley faces you get. It doesn't really matter how many times the 5* is clicked. All that is overshadowed by one heartfelt statement sent in a private message from someone I don't know. I don't suppose I realised how much my words could affect another human being until that moment.

    Well done. It is always nice to know that someone appreciates what you write.

    There's nothing like a heartfelt word of appreciation. If I receive exceptional service in a restaurant, I sometimes write letters to the manager. Comment cards are nice, but an actual letter really hits the nail on the head.

    Well-done to you, and well-done to the reader.
  • Very cool. I guess writers work in isolation mostly. It's the simple heartfelt comment that can make a difference.

    I'm guessing so.
