Writing can be a lot of hard work, but it does have its own rewards. I was lucky enough to get two rewards yesterday. I got to see the cover of my next indie project, and it's much better than anything I could have done with my next-to-nothing skill with GIMP or Photoshop. Also, I'm rereading Twinned Universes before I send it to the editor. There are quite a few things I need to change or reword, but this Sandra person can turn out some readable prose. ;)
What are your writing rewards?
