Everyone needs support. (I say this as the girl that's been told to stay on the couch for her weekend with a heating pad under her butt, forcing the Hubbs to do all the 'running') Be it emotional support, intellectual support, or sometimes, even physical support.
Support when you're writing is a little different. I know if I have a plot problem, which as we know, happens to me a lot, I can always call my sister and get a new perspective. I can ask the Hubbs for input any time. I can even call my Mother and ask her what she thinks of what I've written.
But the writing is still ultimately up to me.
And that's the hard part right now.
