I know Jenni recently did an ode to husbands but I really must talk about how awesome mine is! Some of you may know I've been struggling with a middle grade fantasy novel for about 3 years now. I finally set it aside for the past year much to my husband's disappointment. He loves the story so much he can't stop thinking about it. He keeps threatening to write the book himself and I keep telling him no because I'm so afraid he'll do it better than me!! LOL! But finally last night he says, "So can we talk about your book yet?" (I've been too discouraged to even talk about it for so long.) I'm working on my inner writing team and being open to my stories and allowing myself to be more positive about writing. So I said sure. I grabbed a pen and a paper and my husband proceeded to give me exactly what I've been looking for to help this story. He laid out the world building points that had been getting me stuck and together we outlined a whole book and this time it has a plot!! I've been needing a way to simplify the story and make it feel accomplishable and in one night my hubby did that for me!! Now that I know what he's got I'm not letting him off that easy, he has to help me write it now. And we were worried we couldn't find a way to have dates without it cost money. Now we will go to our own little world and write the story together.
Moral of the story, listen to our husbands and those around us, they may just have the very thoughts our own brain couldn't come up with!!
