"I just bought Rosehead after stumbling upon your blog and reading a few different posts including the Rosehead sample. I must tell you that I absolutely love it! Your writing is fantastic, I am getting swallowed up into a book like I haven't been for a long time. I am a writer, struggling to get my first book written. Struggling with all the fears and crazy thoughts. I am devouring your book thinking "I will never be able to write as well as this"
So I guess it all goes full circle doesn't it?"
"Oh, you will be able to. In fact, you can do it now. It's the fear of failure that's stopping you. It's true with anything, writing, dancing, flying a plane--at first you're intimidated because you think you don't know shit. The way I battled mine was stubbornly writing despite the fear. I almost quit several times. I'm glad I didn't. So you can do it. Chin up. I believe in you. XOXO"
