Thankful Tuesday - Giving Thanks To The Writing Community

Today is the final day in Christine Fonseca's Giving Thanks series. I have given thanks to my writing group and agents, and today I want to give thanks to the writing community.

You guys...in case you haven't noticed, the writing community is awesome.

I am so happy to be a part of a group of people who are just so NICE and HELPFUL. Every day I go through my Google Reader and it is just full of posts that people wrote to help encourage me and make me better. Every day!

Editors are nice and helpful, agents are nice and helpful, established authors are nice and helpful, debut authors are nice and helpful, and people like me, who are trying to do it, are nice and helpful toward each other. I love it.

I've learned so much in the past year by being part of this community. I've learned what it means to be a good writer, but I've also learned what it means to just be a cool person thanks to all of the amazing people I have met both online and in person through this awesome community.

So everyone out there...thank you! Thanks for being so encouraging and helping me succeed. Thanks for helping each other and letting me witness it. It makes me glad to be part of a group of such incredible individuals.
