One of my readers sent this text message to me this week:
I'm reading a book about authors and how hard it is to convey feelings. You don't have that problem! I felt like God wanted me to encourage you about your writing. You always do such a great job of making the words leap off of the page. The words become vibrant, alive, and dancing around the reader so that the reader feel like they are in the setting ... the reader feels what the character feels. Anyway–I wanted to encourage you. –Lauren, TX
