Ha Ha! Edwin’s got a similar mindset. Gladys, though, has to keep him grounded. I like to please. I’m wired that way. Claps and positive comments are evidence I’m on the right track. Otherwise, you just write blind. I think all writers are a bit like Pavlov’s dogs too. We enjoy praise.
Thank you for your comment Mark. (Worth 100 claps, but I’m only allowed 50).
