Emalyn, I'm delighted that WRITING MAGIC has been helpful! Alas, I don't have time to look at your books because I'm deep in writing my next one.

Dear friend:
Thank you so much for writing Ceiling.. It was a perfect match for other books I’ve read during the pandemic, especially Last Kabbalist of Lisbon. I appreciate all the work you put into this effort to bring our history to life.

Gail,
I have been writing some books and need some help with them. After reading Writing Magic so many times and using your practices in them it has helped me with some ideas. Can I send my books to you?
Thanks,
Emalyn

Gail,
As I write to you, I am somehow simultaneously a 24-year old college grad and a 10-year old girl with more dreams than ambition. But one thing that never changes is how your writing has influenced me. At this moment, I realized what Fairest did for me, both as a child and as an adult, though somedays I feel more childlike and irresponsible than I did when I truly was one. Reading Fairest, and loving Aza instantly led me to this great experience of gaining confidence in what I was capable of, rather than focusing on the things I didn't have, or what I looked like. Being an overweight and quirky kid, I didn't realize how important it would be to have the kind of acceptance that is found in Fairest. But when I reread Aza's tale and really took in the words that my younger self needed to hear, my older self was ready to listen. Again. Because some lessons are learned over a lifetime. And confidence is gained sometimes slowly and then rebuilt, again and again, stronger each time.
Thank you for writing Aza for all the kids who needed to love themselves, and for those that maybe didn't have the supportive family and friends that helped Aza pave the way in her own story. And though I'm sure I've thought "where's my Prince (or Princess) Ijori (who will love me even though, or perhaps despite the fact that I am ugly/fat/awkward/whatever the insecurity of the week may have been)?" a million and one times, I realized soon that that wasn't the focus of the story, and that happy endings are different for everyone and love happens in beautiful, unexpected ways every day.
So thank you. Thank you for giving me a lesson I will carry with me forever, which gives me the building blocks of confidence and growing older and, hopefully, wiser.
With all love and affection,
Rachel
