Sincere Thanks are Due

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of my readers. You guys are the best!! I sincerely appreciate all of your encouraging words. You make my writing here seem important and keep me going when I don't want to lift another pen. There are so many days when the low self esteem monster I've battled most of my life tells me my writing is worthless and I might as well pack it in. You guys (every single one of you) help me realize that's not true! Thanks for brightening my life :) I'd give you all a great, big hug if I could.

I apologize that I don't get to read and comment on your blogs every day. I want to, know that. I do follow up on your comments via a comment on the corresponding post. Please check back if you wish to read my response to your words. I appreciate the time and effort each comment takes. Time is precious and the least I can do is let you know I appreciate you spending a bit with me :)

Have a fantastic weekend, keep those pens (and keyboards) moving, and I'll see you all on Monday!

Most sincerely yours,

I sincerely appreciate your encouragement too, Jen! And I totally understand about not being able to make it to every post. I can't either. I wish I could, because each of my blogging friends has such encouraging and helpful posts! But I draw in what I can! Have a great weekend too!

So glad to hear you are feeling better. We all need each other and it feels good to know that my voice won't linger in the clouds unnoticed. No never.

Have a great weekend!

I find the support freely and generously given by this online world of writers somewhat overwhelming. There are days it's truly wonderful to know you're not all alone.

The support of this community is truly staggering. I will echo what the others have said.No worries about blog comments. We all understand. Have a great weekend.

Aww...well, I'm touched, for one.

you know, I don;t come here in hopes you will always comment on my comments or even my blog. I come here because I like the "feeling" of your blog. I don;t make it every day--too many to visit but I'm sure to get here weekly at least and then play catch up if needed. Lately I've had some spare time to read up more frequently which is such a pleasure.

As for low self esteem--I've fluctuated between that and having git a lil' too high. this year has most def. been an Annus horriblis for me, as the Queen said, bu ti suspect in time i will climb up on top eventually. You keep up the good work of doing that too.

Hey, the anit-spam word below for me is"cherio!" How very fun indeed! :)

Wow..what a great group of people you all are...I have been bitten by the "low self esteem bug" too. I have been writing for so long...books in boxes under the bed..and all that...sometimes I ask myself..what am I doing?

I attended a writers workshop in Cambria for many years..I'd say 90% were published authors..and they gave me the best advice I ever got about writing..NEVER throw anything away. And I never have. And I am glad. Blogging has given me more keep at it....

Have a great weekend...

Do the best you can and that's all you can do. I try to hit 20 of the people who follow me a day, and the ones who leave comments on my blogs about 3-4 times a week. That's the best I can do.

You are a great supporter of my work and I thank you. Your encouragement helps me grow as a writer.
I think the blogging world has united folk and given confidence to those who lack it (I am one in that group).
