I love reading the acknowlegements in a book. I find them inspiring as a wannabe writer but none more so than the acknowledgements in Miranda Dickinson's Fairytale of New York.Right at the end it says:
'Dreams can come true - you're holding one in your hands right now.'
It just goes to show that writers once had a dream to be published and it can happen. Sometimes us wannabe writers need to remind ourselves of that.
