Crazy as it sounds, my favourite part of a book is the acknowledgements. Not only do you get the tiniest of insights into the writer, you also see that a real person has wrote the book. A person who, like me, has sat at a computer, has had people swirling around their mind in a non-mental type of way and has sent off their work. For them, it has been sucessful and I hope it will be for me one day.
The acknowledgements are an inspiration to me. I read them, give a little sigh and think 'one day'. One day I might have the chance to thank people for helping me on the road to publication. I'm always disappointed when there isn't an acknowledgement and for some reason, I prefer them to be at the beginning of the book rather than the end (shrugs).
So I would like to thank the writers for thanking those who have helped them. Keep thanking!
