Wow, I can't believe it! I've been SOOOO scared ever since my name first popped up in the column's radar two weeks ago. I was worried that Steven would really hate the thing, and advise me to think about a career in accounting. So to know that he not only was able to sit through reading the whole script, but actually LIKED it... that does a whole lot to boost the "self-worth" discussed in the latest Bolts & Nuts.
And to echo what Steven said, reading all of Bolts & Nuts and The Proving Grounds before submitting my script was invaluable. I know I'm still lacking in "where and when" in my panel descriptions, but I'd say that's because it's still new to me. Before learning about its importance through those columns, where/when was practically non-existent through the whole script. Much of it was added in redrafts on the back of Steven's notes on other scripts. Though I'm annoyed at myself for not rectifying its absence in the opening.
Thanks a lot for your comments, Steven. You don't know how much I appreciate positive feedback from you. I know you're not one to sugar coat flaws you notice, so knowing that you enjoyed my writing has really boosted my confidence. I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts on the script as a whole, but I know you're busy, and won't pester you about it. Maybe drop me a PM when/if you're up for talking about it?
