I'm Thanking for...

Yes, I called you a rodent
Tara  of Tara Tyler Talks  and Vikki of  Scribblings of an Aspiring Author came up with this awesome idea...

A hop to thank the peeps who help you along the way.

When I first saw this I thought...cool...I can do that!

But as I sit here, I'm like, holy smokes, how do I list them all?

We writers are just like the little mice in the field. There's a whole bunch of us holed up in our little nests, pecking away, trying to find enough morsels to make us fat.

Start turning over rocks and stumps and out run these little creatures, half blind from computer screens and sun withdrawal. They run for cover on tiny little paws that move slowly on legs numb from carpal tunnel.

And we all fear the cat. The sly beast of insecurity that threatens to swallow the lone squeaky runner whole.

The smart writer knows there's safety in numbers, and my numbers are many.

From the 200 brilliant people who follow my blog, who comment on my posts, who tell me, 'You go girl'!

You know who you are. You're here, right now, reading this...and it's you I'm talking about it!!!

Thank you! I love you!!!

To every blogger who ever sent me a technical how-to life line, a private word of support, offered to read some the rough inane dribble that leaks form my brain...I thank you!!!

You guys rock! Without you, I'd have been cat food a looonnnngggg time ago!!
