|Thanks, Internet Friends!|
Because this is a month for giving thanks, I thought I'd offer a huge thank you to my many friends on the Internet. Whether they be in e-groups, blogs, Facebook, Twitter, or other social media, I can't begin to count how many wonderful people I've met and bonded with.
Some are writers who not only share their journeys to and after publication, but also bits and pieces of what's happening in their personal lives. From connecting with my writing friends I've learned so much more about the publishing world than I ever would have figured out on my own.
I've also gained friendships with those who appreciate writers and books, and are all too happy to offer encouragement and praise, often when it's badly needed.
On the Internet, I can read a hodgepodge of my friends' lives, including pictures of children, grandchildren and other family members, and share in the personal events of their lives. I fawn over photos of the cutest pets alive, and appreciate marvelous depictions of nature at its finest.
Intermingled with such personal events, are the professional milestones of my writing friends, such as new projects, book covers, contracts, book signings and appearances.
On a sad note, I also commiserate when tragedy befalls any of my friends. All too often I shed tears when I hear of the trials and deaths of their loved ones, not only human, but sometimes pets.
My life is richer because of all of you. Thank you, my Internet Friends, far and wide, from so many corners of the globe, for allowing me into your worlds!
