To My Faithful Blog Readers:
Thank you for another year of your eyeballs on my words here.
Thank you for bravely putting forth your work for critique.
Thank you for offering your own critique to others here, who, like you, are striving to better their work.
Thank you for giving feedback when I've asked for it, and even when I haven't.
Thank you for your support and encouragement during my this-isn't-fun times.
Thank you for sending your friends and colleagues here, that they might benefit from our community.
Thank you for sometimes making me laugh out loud. Or Chesire-grin. Or tear up with gratefulness.
Thank you for sharing your journeys, your struggles, your victories, your hearts.
Thank you for being teachable. And for teaching.
Thank you for being one important voice in the Writing Community. Every time you reach out, you leave your mark. Every time you pay it forward, a new blessing will come your way.
I'm honored to be here with you. I love (love! love!) the beauty of writerdom. And I'm truly thankful for what each of you has given here.
Happy New Year!
Naturally, the blog will be dark while I'm feasting on the joy of being with those I love best. May your holidays be equally rich!
