She did that.
Erica joined this blog over two years ago because she thought Christy would be a great addition to her writing team and she (erica) wanted to make some new writing friends, too.
christy was and erica did.
We both wrote this blog while we completed, edited, and queried our first manuscripts. Then we edited some more. Rewrote a couple. Wrote another, and a third. Perfected our crafts and researched agents and editors and writing styles and point of views and yes, even how to craft a sentence (ha!).
We did that, too. Successfully, I should add.
For now, are proud of our accomplishments. However, we have our limits. We are mothers and teachers and wives and daughters.
So are you (subsitute male pronouns and nouns as needed). It's okay to be overwhelmed - well, not okay, so much as "in the same boat as us." No one should feel guilty about that.
The long and short of it is - for now, we are closed for the season. Please know and believe that we cherish each and every friendship we've made here and that we will keep working on everything that's important in our lives.
Until we return, have a cup of coffee on us. We'll meet up again soon.
this is christy's cup. she shares like that.
