It's a matter of faith. Faith=confidence in something or someone else. For the bird, it's faith in those flimsy wings--because she's seen her mother take flight a hundred times and believes she too can accomplish something great. From the safety of these leafy branches I've watched several friends, several of you, take flight, and it's miraculous. But the real reason I've taken the leap is because of the many wonderful and supportive people who have literally kicked me out of the nest. (You know who you are.) I've received encouragement, ultimatums, even received threats! (For which I will profoundly thank you, as soon as I stop plummeting to my proverbial death.) To those who have pushed and aided me forward, you rock.
And back to the mystery guest... I promise a free cheese wheel of your choice to anyone who can guess the identity of my future cohort.
Off Topic: Curious, what blog posts in the last 6 months have been the most meaningful/memorable for you? What were they about? Why did they stand out?
Having a mystery guest is a great idea! I love that, not to mention that image of the birds. Great!ReplyDelete
Agree with Sheri! As to who that mystery guest is . . . hmm. Could it be a famous writer? Am I close? Can I expect at least a slice of cheese?ReplyDelete
It would be awesome if your guest was The Good Doctor, but that's wishful thinking, I think. And congrads on getting your feet wet in the publishing arena! You'll do awesome, I have no doubt. :)ReplyDelete
That's awesome about the mystery guest. I wonder who it could be.ReplyDelete
And congrats on sending your manuscript out there! Good luck!
Oh I know who I am...So do I get to guess?ReplyDelete
C. Lee--um, no. But here's a virtual slice of cheese.ReplyDelete
David--Wishful thinking indeed. And thanks!
Matt--Yes, thank you for pushing me out the door, and NO, you don't get to "guess".
Um . . . I have no idea. But I'm guessing a writer--or agent? Editor?ReplyDelete
Congratulations on sending out your manuscript! Good luck with the queries. :)
Good for you for taking the leap! I hope your mystery guest reveals him/herself soon :)ReplyDelete
A mystery guest blogger? Hmm.ReplyDelete
I love that bird picture! Yep, that's what querying is like! Good luck!
I'm blanking on a moving post. If I can think of one, I'll return and let you know. Long day. My mind is mush!
That's great, Crystal! Super good luck to you and here's hoping that story sprouts its wings!ReplyDelete
I love the idea of the mystery guest. And good luck with your manuscript!!ReplyDelete
Woohooo! Good for you on getting your MS out. So hard but necessary on this freaky journey. ;-) I'm looking forward to "meeting" your guest.ReplyDelete
So excited for you "leaving the nest." Crossing everything for you...ReplyDelete
