C is for CPs

There was a time when my world was dark. I wrote, I read, but I couldn't see.

The words tumbled onto the page, but didn't always like what they'd become. They wanted to be heard. They wanted to take wings and fly. But they couldn't do it alone.

Neither could I.

One day an email came and my words were discovered.
My new friend saw a spark, something she believed in. I knew. My words knew.

With her friendship, support and general awesomeness, I grew (and continue to grow) in ways I never could have imagined. I am stronger because she believes in me.
Then we met other friends. We were introduced to other words who wanted to be nurtured, shaped, loved. We wanted to grow. We wanted to share. We wanted to be better. And we knew we could do it together.

Now my world is full of light. I write and I read. The darkness may cast its shadow, but I know where my light is to guide me: the girls from Operation Awesome and Renae.

My friends. My rocks. My lights.

My critique partners.
