J is for Jon

Some things are best said in another language. El me cae bien. Which translates to: I fall in well with him. Which is just a very cool way to describe friendship, I think. And that is how I feel about my crit partner Jon.

I turn to Jon unabashedly when I'm stressed, or overwhelmed, and when I'm enthused. He is supportive of all my writing emotions. And let's face it, there are a ton. On a daily basis. :)

And, his creativity is contagious. He inspires some really cool stuff--things I might not have thought of otherwise. When I know that J will read my work/hear my idea/put his energy behind a project, I know I have to step it up, and take it to the next level.

I get to reach. And isn't that what it's all about?

J, thank you for your energy, your creativity, your constant support. I would be wallowing without you.

J, me caes bien.

  7. I am taking that comment to my group tonight. I feel the same way about each of the Inkers.
    Pen and Ink has published a short story on Amazon. Lupe posted about it yesterday http://thepenandinkblog.blogspot.com/
    There has been so much written about self publishing that we wanted to track a venture and inform our readers of the results. The Wooden Men, a folktale based on a Mayan Legend, costs 99 cents. http://www.amazon.com/The-Wooden-Men-ebook/dp/B004T50IRW.
    We also discovered the free kindle downloads for Macs, PCs, Blackberry, Android, iPhone and iPad and the Windows 7 phone
    There has been so much said about Kindle. This download is your chance to view content without having to buy a Kindle

  8. You sound like you have an awesome crit partner!
