What do you like most about your writing?
I read in a baby book recently that babies really love enthusiastic praise. Any of my colleagues could tell you that praise isn’t really my forte. It just doesn’t occur to me. I don’t think I had ever responded to anything Edith has done with enthusiastic praise, so this morning, I tried to keep it in mind. She was playing with a cup and a ball, and she put the ball in the cup.
“Good job!!!!” I squealed, clapping my hands.
I wish you could have seen the look she gave me. Basically, it was the sort of look you might give me if I responded that way to you putting a ball in a cup.
Anyhow, I have written one novel and it’s some real ball-in-cup shit. I’ll like my writing when I write something worth liking.
