“Oh man, now I’m all excited. I feel like I had a piece of cardboard and now you’ve given me SO MANY SHINY THINGS to decorate it with! I will make art. Good art. Just like Neil Gaiman wants me to.” – C.H. McFarland
If anyone ever asks me why I love to mentor and edit, this is what I’ll show them. Seeing stories blossom with just a few well-placed suggestions here and there is its own reward. Watching these amazing writers realize the gem they have and seeing them start to believe in themselves . . . that is everything.
That is always worth it.
