The good thing about being in a class full of English majors is that you aren’t the only one crying when an author makes a speech about how he knew that he was making a difference with his words when children knocked on his door at Halloween and they were dressed as his book characters, sent him fan mail, and even had birthday cakes that were decorated with things that he himself had imagined such a long time ago. Characters from a book that was constantly turned down until one publishing company finally took a chance on him and printed his it. It wasn’t just his book anymore, it was the reader’s book as well. It belonged to whoever connected with it. That’s when he knew that he had made. It wasn’t just an idea in his head, or a rough draft, no, it was something much more than that.
