Most of them are writers, many of them published and well established, and some have only just had their first books published. And some, like myself are very new to the game. But here’s the thing; I have never known a friendlier, more helpful, encouraging and inspiring bunch than those writers I have ‘met’ on line and later in person. All so willing and eager to pass on their wealth of knowledge and experiences in the world of writing.
I have frequently had, as most writers do, moments of crippling self-doubt as to my ability as a writer. But it only takes one positive comment from a writerly friend to lift my spirits and spur me on and all is well with my world again. And even friendly and well meant criticism is welcomed because without it, I and other fledgling authors would never be the writers we aspire to be and never move onward and upward. We need constructive criticism to become better writers and fine hone our skills.
This is a short post today because other aspects of my life need my attention right now. But I cannot finish this without a mention of those friends. So…..a big thank you to….
