I know this is kind of a self-ego stroke, but I felt the need to share this with you. I was browsing through my email, reading some reviews/criticisms of work I'd previously written to get back in story mode, and I stumbled upon this little gem. I honestly don't know how I missed it before, but I definitely would have remembered a compliment like this (regarding "Everyone Likes a Challenge":
"Of all of the short FanFic writings I have to tell you that your short story from Eric's POV is good enough I wouldn't be surprised if you were really CH but pretending to be a fan/writer. It is really very well written and in the same style/spirit as the Southern Vampire/Sookie Stackhouse series.
Keep up the good work and you might think about doing some short stories and publishing them.
(name withheld cuz it's someone else's)"
I had to reread that a couple times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. My sincerest thanks to the author of that lovely PM, it was just the boost I needed to get my ass in gear and start writing again.
Much love, Nox
