I have some amazing fellow writers I am blessed to call friends. They've been such an encouragement to me through this writing journey. They've shown their care for me in some amazing ways.
My critique partners are so faithful to work on my submissions. I know how much they put into the group, and they're much appreciated. I've seen all of our work blossom and bloom over the past year and a half. We need each other. I'm so thankful that God put us together. Blessings to you all.
I've also come across some writers through ACFW that have given me invaluable help with proposals and edits, and even sent me information on upcoming conferences and contests. One friend gave me a reference to her agent. That was a very selfless thing to do. They've contributed to important stepping stones on my walk to the finish line of getting published.
Two different conference leaders gave me books on learning the craft of writing. They've been invaluable tools that I've used to come along on my journey even more.
This is my prayer to you all, one of thankfulness.
2 Thessalonians 4:1 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith growth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
We must work together in the writing world. It's a tough one even though we're in the Christian book business. Thank you all so much for your willingness to put me in your prayers and thoughts, too. This is living life for Christ:furthering others, working together, and helping when you didn't have to.
