Catch Me Before I Fall Down and Faint


I just retrieved the following email from my Inbox.

Dear Susan,

Thank you very much. I have read your blog, and was much moved by it.

Best,

Marilynne Robinson

I hope she didn't read the comments, or she'll know I only read half her book :) That's awesome!

You should so get her to blurb your next book...

hahahaha! Right, Libby.

Yes, it totally made my day. My week! My month!

But it does remind me that even the biggest writers like to hear from their readers. I've gotten responses from every writer I've ever written to (it's only been a total of about four). I think I just didn't really expect it this time. And I've been so happy to hear from anyone who has enjoyed anything I've written.

I have to say, I didn't really faint, but I did get a little teary.
