Warning! Sappy post alert!

Wow, well, I never claimed I was good at keeping up with journals and diarys...I should have known I'd be bad about keeping a blog....then again I haven't had much to say that was worth posting.

This week (past 7 days, not the actual calander week) has been pretty eventful. Yesterday one of the girls in my writing group (I guess you could call us that) sold her first book! It was wonderful to be there for it. Also, I finished my first novella this morning, and others in our group have had extremely good weeks as far as page counts goes. It did make me think though, about whether or not I'd be writing still if I hadn't found a group of friends to share all the ups and downs with....ok, I am pretty sure I wouldn't still be writing. I'd have gotten discouraged and let something else, some other hobby take over.

Sharing a friends excitement over her first sale, bullying (and being bullied thanks Jessica and Aline) and having other writers to whine with is so important, and I just want to take this opportunity to thank the Prolific Scribes. I can't wait until the day we can all say we had a first sale party together.
