When you read the critique of the first chapter in Aidan’s story, a critique made by Daryl Devoré (a friend and an author I look up to) and she brings you to tears with only a few lines.
This is what she said: Free yourself. Let your voice run free. You have a great one.

Are you one of those people who always sound professional and cool when making calls to, for example, roofers (the people who fix roofs)?
If you answered yes, I don’t like you too much right about now.
I just called a guy to come to the place we’re trying to buy for a quote on the fascia (getting technical, I know), and it was such a dumb-assed phone call. Oh my god.
“Hi, I… uh… I called friday–no, probably Thursday, for a quote for–because we just had the inspection and, uh, we need a quote to see how much it would be to fix the, um, fascia?”
Sweet Jesus, I should really start rehearsing those kind of calls before making them.
This page is a work in progress so bear with me. It’s always a question of finding the time…. Because, you see, I’m buying a house. A frigging house. And we all want to close soon. In like, 3 weeks. Yeah. Just give me a few more days to get through this mess and I’ll explain what this new page means.
