Then, a couple of days later, this arrived in my Twitter feed:
Glad I’ve got sunglasses on so no one sees me crying at the pool thanks to a short story about a quilt of all things. Nice work, @leioss.

It’s beyond wonderful when a total stranger takes time out of their day to tell you they’ve enjoyed your work. But not only that, when the feedback you get tells you someone got your story & that it affected them the way you hoped it would… That’s completely priceless.
