I just met Tanith Lee . . .

. . . and I shook her hand. And I bawled my eyes out while I tried to articulate how much her work has meant to me.

She seemed genuinely surprised that someone would come all the way just to meet her. And she seemed quite honored, and said as much.

So, um, yeah. I met Tanith Lee. She apologized for being merely human. I assured her it wasn't a problem.

I'm still in a bit of a state about it, so I'm going to go off in a corner for a bit and, um, recover.

Today I took pleasure in meeting one of my literary heroes and having her tell me she's looking forward to reading my book when it's published.

Today I learned what Tanith Lee is like in person.

I'm glad that you got to do this. It is a wonderful thing to be able to tell someone what they meant to you. Bet she'll remember you *grin*

I do feel partly responsible since I did give you her books to read because I thought they were sooo cool.

Re: Randomly found this.
What particular rabbit hole did you tumble down to land in my journal? Now I'm all curious.

Hi, I think I was friends-of-friendslist trawling...
