I Wrote Something

a while ago. I think I told you about it. Today a reporter picked up on the story (Swedish only, sorry).
And thanks to her it's been a very good day.
When you write for a living it's easy to lose track of what's good and what's not.
It's a job, it pays the bills, it's what I do.
But then someone actually reads something you wrote and likes it.
And you get a high that's better than anything.
Last night I felt like nothing. Today I'm on top of the world.
And do I like it! I love it.
Thank you, friendly stranger.
Thank you everyone who cheered me on today.
Turns out I'm a writer, after all.

Photo from last weeks conference at Gotland. A whole other story.

I clicked over, then confirmed that I still can't read swedish. I'll just have to take your word for it :)

Congratulations! How wonderful. I know exactly what you mean about being a writer vs. being a writer.

Dammit - brought a tear to me eye. Although there were still all of two words my Danish couldn't help me with. Nice one.

Do tell about Gotland though! Really want to go there. Gotska sandön too! (

You guys! Thank you. If I write at all these days it's thank to you. This place is where the words end up.

Anna said...
