Friends, fellow writers, countrymen, women and critters...
I would like to begin by reminding you of a series written about me a year ago, when my friend Amanda Socci, the Creative Idea Gal and I had only known each other a few months.
As I wrote at the time: "While parts 1 and 2 of her series on me were in the form of an interview of me, the 3rd and 4th parts comprised her personal opinions on my writing voices and suggestions for the future.
The finished work is something I've never seen done by other online writers, in relation to my decade as a blogger, and is a humbling, thought provoking experience for me to digest (I've had a few friends share their thoughts, and encouragements, in comments and e-mails over the years and those people have played important roles in my growth as a blogger)."
My Creative Voices and What One Writer Thinks of Them - In 4 Parts
A lot has happened since then, in both our creative lives, and her support and encouragement has meant a lot to me.
We even met at the Blog Paws Pet Blogger and Social Media Conference, last May.
In addition to her own blog and her blog called A Slice of Faith, a journey to book publication, she is a freelance writer and the creator of a series called the"I Know I Can" WNFIN 10-Month Training Program, for Writenonfictionnow.com and Writenonfictioninnovember.com.
It is this last that is applicable to this story.
