My husband and I celebrated our Two Year Wedding Anniversary this past week and I thought I would take a moment to give Jeremy some of the accolades he deserves for being the husband of an aspiring writer.
Jeremy is my number one supporter.
He is continually making sacrifices for me and encouraging me to make sure I put time aside each day to write and edit.
He is the best accountability partner I could ask for, because he doesn’t simply ask if I have written today to appease me, but he truly cares about my projects and my deadlines.
Not only does he want me to do the best I can do, but he wants my stories to be the best they can be.
He will always take time out of his day to work through character arcs and outlines with me, or to read over a scene and give me pointers.
And he’s not afraid to tell me when something is flat or unnecessary or boring.
I’m thankful he doesn’t puff me up with flattering comments, but gives me genuine encouragement and honest compliments.
He doesn’t give me a hard time when I say that I’m doing to do work, and I sit down to edit or write.
Even though it currently only affects our budget by financing an additional coffee date each month, he takes it just as seriously as I do.
And not just because he loves me, but he believes in me.
Although I consider myself every bit the amateur in the world of story telling, he sees my potential and helps me to grow with every project.
I am so thankful for my number one fan, financier, supporter, encourager, critic, and partner.
