The Community

I started seriously blogging about writing last spring, I think the beginning of June. When I look at how many incredible people I've met online in that short time, I'm amazed. I've had chances to swap manuscripts and query letters. I've been able to share in the joys of new publications and commiserate over rejection letters.

I love that even when competition for agent critiques is on the line, we round up as many of our writing friends as we can to share in the opportunity - knowing as we do so, our odds of winning go down.

The writing community is full of smart, talented people. I'm proud to know you. Some of you well, some of you not so well.

No matter where you are on the road to publication, or whatever your goals might be - I'm glad you're here!

And I guess I'm feeling a wee bit sentimental this friday...


  1. I know exactly how you feel. I was "late" for our cyberspace meeting last night but it was well worth it. Even across the miles you can feel so close to someone.

  2. I hope your sentimentality is linked to something good. Thanks for the insights.

  3. I agree completely. And I'm glad you're here, too, Jolene!
