“You are the first professional to offer feedback and your encouraging words have given me additional motivation!  It is reassuring to know that I was on the right track; you have a remarkable ability to give constructive feedback in a positive way (and you are absolutely correct).  Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration.  I look forward to submitting more stories and continuing to improve.”
