Robyn Campbell and Theresa Milstein
I am so proud to call her my friend....Robyn, be watching your mail for a little something from me. (wink) Be sure and hop over to Robyn's blog and meet her.
Theresa a couple years ago. She was a struggling substitute teacher. A position I had been in many times. I tried to comfort her and encourage her not even thinking about the writing side of her life. Her blog was just one of those blogs I had to visit to see is she was okay. Over the past year we've become closer, trading manuscripts (OMGoodness she is SO helpful), emails and even a phone call. I know my mg novel will be better because of her. Not only has she ripped my manuscript to bits (LOL), she gave me suggestions on how to improve it, and she has encouraged me so much this year.
I am grateful to consider her one of my friends and a critique partner. If you haven't met Theresa (or T, as I call her) please hop over to Theresa's blog and check her out. T, keep an on your mail a little something should arriving in a couple days from me.
Our writing community is full of selfless people and I feel so blessed to be a part of it.
If you didn't join in on Operation Help the Elf and you'd like to give props to one of the people who have influenced, helped you or made a difference in your life...feel free to do so in the comments. (It will make you feel good, whether they see it or not.)
Have a wonderful holiday and I'll be back on schedule after the new year.
(((HUGS))) to everyone!
