To my Crit Partners....

Here's my new motto regarding the Fab 4 (and Heather)....where we go one, we go all! That's a line from White Squall (great movie, btw, if you haven't seen it) and it's just been playing in my mind a lot when I think of my "core" group. In ups and downs, requests and rejections, celebrations and publications...we're in this crazy place together...on this winding path, this never-dull journey...we're cruising it all together. And that, my friends, is what it makes it all worthwhile. Yeah, contracts WILL be nice...and all the stuff that comes with it, but I wouldn't trade where we are right now for anything. Because I've been blessed to have you guys as my friends, my cps, my prayer partners. So, where we go one, we go all. That's my profound thought for today.

How is everyone else??????????

You're exactly right. when I read what you wrote on my blog, it touched me straight to the heart. I love you guys so much. I would not make it in this insanity without you.

and fear not..Sci-Fi girl is on the job. :-D

Hey girl, you about made me cry! I feel the same. No way I could do this without you guys. We've already gained SO much—each other. Love you!

I'm feeling the luuuuuuuuuv, even if I'm not one of your cps (I don't think I could keep up with you and Ronie! Aiyah!).

Very sweet, Robin! Your cps are lucky to have you. =D

Heather Diane Tipton said...

wow. I know that I crack you up because of how weird I am but I gotta say the fact that you include me in your group is such a blessing. and I'm honored to be a part of it I love y'all so much. I'm very grateful for this journey the Lord has placed me on and that He deemed me worthy to have the likes of y'all to travel it with.

That's a lovely post, Robin :)

I've said this before: I just feel like it's not a silly dream like it once was. I'm sure I'll be pubbed, because I'm willing to do the work it takes. I'm still with the CPs I have because I know they take this seriously. And you ladies attract other writers, like Camy (who is far from fat, btw) and Heather. More rejections will come, but it's part of the business. If we make it part of OUR business, we'll make it work for us.

They say it's all about he journey and who takes it with you. Your cps should be happy to know you. I know I am. You're very sweet. :-)

Ronie...I printed out my motto and taped it over my console so I can see it all the time! Now, excuse me, where are our contracts? LOL

Camy...you can feel the love? From me? LOLOLOL Considering you being you and me being me, well, that's just funny! But honestly, I do luvs ya! We're gonna have to much fun at National!

Kelly...I think we bless each other...and annoy and irritate and...LOL

Aw Heather....you know we luvs ya! :)

Thanks, Bonnie!

Ron...very true. I love that we're here to encourage each other. Speaking of, don't you owe me some chapters???? LOL

Thanks, Tanya. But shhh....I'm not sweet. Not really.

Edie...mine passed just the cp mark long ago and became friends and prayer partners. We actually *gasp* talk on the phone about stuff other than writing! LOL
