Most importantly, I helped a fellow writer, contributed to helping others love story writing (or at least feel better about themselves by comparing their skills to my own!), and exercised multiple writing muscles I hadn't used for a while, such as reading out loud, flash editing, critiquing with my wife, and more.
Thank you Betsy for the opportunity.
As a side note, I accidentally said to Betsy in the submission email I was pleased she was a follower of this blog. Hopefully she will be in the future, but what I meant to say was that Betsy has participated with me in Sprint Writing and multiple AI conversations. I appreciate all of her participation with a new author in training such as myself.;-)
