Yup! This about sums it up.
An author’s friend,
Is patient, and understanding.
They know when the characters
They know when you’ve been writing
For twelve hours straight,
And need to sleep.
They know you aren’t ignoring them
When you stare into space.
But rather, you are discovering new worlds
For them to run through.
They know that at the end of it all,
An author needs to turn to someone
I did it.
