In light of Denise's post yesterday, I've been thinking about song lyrics. When I was 10, my best friend and I sang the Beatles' With A Little Help From My Friends for our school's talent show. We didn't win any prizes, but I took that song to heart and am thinking about some of those lyrics right now--how they relate to the writing journey and #wipmadness and the awesome help I've received from people I've met right here during March Madness. Many of us have raised our hands and stepped up to critique each other's work on a moment's notice. We've cheered each other on. We've made each other laugh. This is golden. So sing along with me:
What do I do when my love is away
(Does it worry you to be alone)
How do I feel by the end of the day
(Are you sad because you're on your own)
No, I get by with a little help from my friends
We've made it through a week together and I officially declare today March Madness Gratitude Day.
I am grateful that at the end of the day I feel encouraged and supported and because of your help, I've already revised almost 40% of my novel! THANK YOU ALL!
How has being part of March Madness made you feel at the end of the day? What have you accomplished?
Speaking of support, don't forget to stop by Anne Hale's blog tomorrow for Thursdays check-in.
