It was nerve-wracking to let my mom read my manuscripts. When she read the second one, I waited and waited to hear what she'd say.
Then she called and told me she cried.
I was floored.
What a compliment! I know she's my mom and that her viewpoint is going to be different than a more objective reader, but I was still flattered and I still smiled.
Who do you let read your work? What kind of comments make you smile?
