My good friend and I went to breakfast this morning and the subject of writing support came up. She and I have both had experiences where we have heard people say not very nice things about other writers or have seen controversy as we have taken this journey.
As we reflected on this, we thought about those amazing writers who did support others out there in the community. Those who answered questions, those who plan awesome activities, those who care if someone has gotten something published how big or little it may be. Those who haven’t gotten offended by someone’s misspoken words.
They are the class acts.
And there are many out there.
To you I say thank you. You are the support writers need to keep writing, the force of support to encourage a discouraged friend (not drag their noses in “you wrote this?” But instead said, "I can help you."). You are the ones who keep us going. And to you I say. Thanks.
After having a difficult week with the writing, I was grateful for those around me who came to my aide. I hope I can be more like you and be a support and not a weight when others in my life are struggling. I am truly grateful.
Have you ever had someone help you up when you were feeling low? Do you have any suggestions that I can put in my mini book of awesome ideas to help others around me? (I know long title for my notepad, but I love it!)
Thanks guys! Next week I will actually take the time to think of a great post and not go on a long rants. Well, maybe. =) Have a great week, and may all your writings be mind-boggling astounding.
