First, for all of you: You've done another tremendous job of leaving helpful critiques for your peers.
For those who entered an excerpt: Kudos for bravery and humility!
And now, the "collection" part:
So many of you have shared, both via email and in the comment boxes, how this blog has positively affected you as a writer. I deeply appreciate your words of affirmation, as they continue to give new meaning to the time I put into this blog.
I'm gathering up all the "good words," so to speak, and creating a "positive feedback" page. I can't track everyone down from the comments, since some of you are unlinkable (which sounds like unthinkable with a speech impediment). So if you have said something POSITIVE in a comment box lately, and you DO NOT wish to be quoted, please send me an email (including your screen name, so I know which comment you're talking about). Otherwise, please know that I will be taking comments from the boxes and adding them to the warm fuzzy pile. You'll receive credit with whatever screen name you used to leave the comment.
If you would rather leave a fresh, shiny comment RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW -- the floor's open! Tell me how this blog has impacted your writing. Sign your name the way you'd like it to appear. Say as much or as little as you'd like.
The truth is that this blog has become so much more than I expected. And it's beyond exciting.
As for criticism, suggestions for improvement, and general grumbling? You can email that privately. Except be forewarned: I don't pay attention to grumbling. Only constructive criticism. *grin*
That's all for now! I look forward to your comments.
