Class of...Holy Amazingness!!!

One of the things that always strikes me about writing is how I can get SO RIDICULOUSLY close with people I've never met. But after a million emails starting with "I feel like an idiot complaining about this, but I know YOU will understand..." you kinda bond. (Either that, or by some strange coincidence, all their contact info changes and they "forget" to tell you in advance.) And I had the opportunity to join one of those groups this year.

I'm a member of the Class of 2k11, and today is our launch day! We've been working toward this for about a YEAR, and it's so exciting to see it all come together after so long! And I'm particularly excited because I get to share the experience with my fellow Team 11ers. They're some of the best writing friends I've got.

So please stop by the Class of 2k11 to see what we're up to and read the inaugural blog post by...er...me. But before you do, why not take a minute to tell me about the writing support you can't live without?

So stopping by! I want to find out more about this!

My husband, if my husband didn't support me I don't think I could do what I do, and push the way I push. When I'm down all of my blog buddies lift me up, without them I would be nothing! Yay for support!

I feel the same way, and it always amazes me. I think this is true of writers -- to get to know one another through just our words -- more than any other group.

Also, I love your blog. It always makes me smile.

Isn't the virtual writing world amazing? Glad you 2k11ers (why does that look like a serial killing gang name?) found each other. Best of luck to you all!! (oh, and I found my blog partner and couldn't do all this without her - thanks christy!)
