Who doesn't need affirmation? Gary Chapman wrote a book called The Five Love Languages (excellent therapeutic resource, as well as just a great read for the general population) in which "words of affirmation" made the cut. My actual love language is quality time, but I do so like the affirming word. I think it's secondary, maybe.

Recently, though, I've received quite a bit of affirmation on my current WIP. Some of this confirmation came from people I'm very close to and have known for a while. Others came from people I've never met, but have an association with through American Christian Fiction Writers. Either way, it just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! I sit here, reading comments from my crit partners with a goofy grin on my face. I think, "Hey! She got it!" or "Aww, she likes my main man as much as I do!" Sigh.

I suppose I should begin writing these peoples' names down, as hopefully they will end up on a dedication page somewhere in the future.

To all my affirmers, and you know who you are, a multitude of thanks. It means the world to me.
