You guys, I was BLOWN AWAY by yesterday's response to my desperate cry for critique. A whole load of you jumped into the dark, uncharted waters to help me with my WiP. I know I'll have a better product going into the conference because of you. Thank you!
From the surface of my cold, turbulent lake where I'm treading water, it's nice to have many friends around me.You make this sometimes solitary endeavor less cold and less dark.
And for those of you who didn't have the time (especially considering my absurdly short timeline), I still feel your support and encouragement. After all, when I look at this realistically, if twenty people had been willing to read and give feedback, I wouldn't have had time to incorporate it all.
The numbers were perfect and I am grateful for every single one of you.
I feel like I'm being melodramatic about this.
I just want you all to know how much you've blessed me with your generosity and encouragement.
Now ... back to a lot of percolating. And eventually a lot of editing.
