Good Afternoon All,
It's a nice feeling to know that I don't just sit behind my computer typing away at my manuscript (ms) completely alone.
What do I mean? I mean I am fortunate enough to have met some other writers (both published and unpublished) through this helpful tool called the Internet (and met a few in person). It's great to be able to look up and say "They know what I'm going through, they are going through it too (or have gone through it). I'm not really all alone!"
There's some really talented people out there. It's also nice getting tips from the published authors. Published authors understand what the unpublished ones are going through because at one time they went through it.
I don't want to be "an island" because then I don't learn as much. I once told a writing friend of mine (Tess) that I would be "a sponge". And I mean that (not just at the Workshop we're attending in October, but also in general).
I've learned a lot from my fellow writers (both ones I know in person and through communicating online). And they're all wonderful people.
I'm not trying to be a "brown-noser", I'm just big on giving credit where credit is due. And I owe a lot to the authors I've met. (Not just for their advice/tips, but also for their friendship).
So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything. You all are the best!
Have a great weekend everyone!
