Thank you for reading my work and sharing this with me. I couldn’t quit, even if I tried…

foymeetsworld: Hi, Della. (: I just really wanted to tell you that you are such an inspiration to me. I'm an 18 year old amateur writer, and I hope to one day possess a fraction of the talent you do. Much love! <3 (:

Hi Danielle,

Thank you :)  And as I write that it doesn’t seem enough to compensate for how your words have moved me as I sit here working on my upcoming project.  Maybe there is a poem in this inadequacy, but for now, thank you :)

p.s. Keep writing the truth, everything comes after that :)
