I am blessed with the best of friends

Here's another image that fits my story, Tuesdays and Thursdays, which has gone down really well at Every Day Fiction. My thanks to everyone who read and commented on it. Special thanks to Kevin Shamel, just about one of the most upbeat and supportive guys I've ever met, who excelled himself this week as custodian of my self-confidence. You're da man, Kev.

A big shout out to Gay Degani who's been keeping me on track this week, writing-wise. Gay's a blazingly good crime writer and having her watch my back is a gift.

Thanks to Tania Hershman for suggesting the buddy business and for her all-round sweetness and enthusiasm, and to Vanessa Gebbie for not telling me to button it about the perils of writing porn when we met for supper earlier in the week.

I too feel blessed, Sarah.

Anything we can do to make this writer's life less isolating, Gay, has to be a good thing. Not to mention the tips on contests to enter, the mutual encouragement etc etc. All good stuff.

Vanessa Gebbie said...

It was lovely to see you, Sarah. I found the 'writing porn' conversation a suitably spicy accompaniment for the wonderful Indian food we were enjoying!

Sarah Hilary said...

That's true, Vanessa!

You're rock and roll in a big way, Sarah.

You're action figures and heart touching. How many people are that as writers?

Just enough that you're one of the few. Keep rocking and I'll keep reading.
