I wasn't sure if I should post this here or over at emyrld_facets because it's personal, but it's about my writing. So I guess it's going here.
Saturday at the Renn Faire I saw a friend that unfortunately don't see often enough. She's one of those people that you can pick up a conversation with months later and it's still good. She's got a busy life, I understand that. She is one of the most caring people I know.
So I mentioned to her that I started a different LJ that was more about me rather than my writing, I had lost a bunch of my RL friends off this journal because of mostly posting fic. And I knew that my writing wasn't her cup of tea.
She completely blew me away. She told me that she didn't really comment on my fic, but she reads it. She told me that it was awesome to see the evolution of my writing style. That she sees how much better I've gotten, how I am able to use my words better and am more descriptive.
Well, the feeling was awesome. To have someone who is not in fandom praise your writing for your ability and not for content.... well it was a real boost. It's also making me want to write more original fic and to be more enthusicastic.
Thank you my friend.
