With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I’m using this post to send some blog love out to all of you who have given me a read over the past three months.  In The Beginning, my goal for the blog was to get myself writing every day (or close to).  I knew I would enjoy the writing, but I never could have imagined how awesome and gratifying it would be to connect with you – the people reading.

If you recall from my early posts, “exposing” myself and my writing so publicly my greatest fear and a big part of the reason I hesitated for so long.  Finally, I decided I had to do it if I was going to make any progress toward publishing my work.  To have the very aspect of blogging that I feared most turn out to be the best part is just amazing.  Whether you are a physical-world friend or a virtual world friend, your support, encouragement and help (with my manuscript) is greatly appreciated.  Thanks for coming along for the ride so far, and Happy Valentine’s Day.

  1. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too! It’s been great getting to know you and I am so thrilled for you that it’s turned out to be rewarding 🙂

  2. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours from me and mine. I have loved getting to know you and hope you go from strength to strength!!

    • Lara – same to you. I want to book a trip to England just so I can see your face! Any time you guys want to come to Colorado… 🙂

  3. Happy Valentine’s Day Julie! I love the idea of a tandem Wolf Hall read — any idea when you’ll be ready to dive in?

    • Terri – pretty soon! I’m proposing it at my book club meeting for our March read. I don’t know if it will get chosen or not, but either way I want to read it soon. I’ll let you know at the end of the week a more “definitive” timeframe. Also, I can be flexible based on your reading schedule too!
