(There's nothing better than a quick turn around on a critique!)
Today's day 17 of Arlee Bird's A-Z Challenge! Since I write for younger children and we're doing the ABC's, I thought I'd do The ABC's of A Good Friend (and throw in a few random pictures, because I have a bit of a camera habit).
I like friends who are quick on their feet...LOL, I don't mean they can run faster than me. I mean they're quick with comebacks. I usually come up with a good comeback a couple days later. LOL...
Friends who come to your aid quickly are a big plus. You know those friends...The ones you know you can count on in a bind. Your go-to people! They are QUICK to help you. Be it an edit, a query, pet sitting, babysitting or checking that your basement didn't flood while you were out of town for the weekend. Those people are your quick go-to friends....Everyone should have a handful of them!
Quiet friends are great too. There are some people you can just hang out with. You don't have to be doing anything "fun." You can sit on the porch and read or chat. You can go for a walk in the park. You can long deep discussions with them about the meaning of life or about if faeries really do exist. Quiet friends are comfortable friends....You can go to their houses and sleep as late as you want.
There are so many different kinds of friends. I hope you have quick and quiet friends too.
Can you think of any more "Q" qualities that you'd like to see in a friend?
