Maybe I would still be writing if it weren’t for Rebecca’s encouragement but then again maybe I’d have talked myself into the belief that I really didn’t have the time, who knows.
Getting feedback from an author was the best critique I could have hoped for. I wanted honesty and wasn’t afraid of criticism.
Dancing On Thorns is an epic read. It’s set in the world of ballet. After so much encouragement and advice from Rebecca I wanted to read her work, I suppose I felt obliged to really. The funny thing is that when I told my Mum about her, she told me she had recently read it!
I’m so glad I decided to read it, one; Because it was bloody good and two; because it gave me an insight into the kind of writer she is. At first I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get into it because I know nothing about ballet but that really didn’t matter. I’m often put off by big reads and this is a big book! However, I raced through it and thoroughly enjoyed it.
