39 EPIC Winners!!

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."                                                                                     - Anais Nin
When I found this quote, I thought of all of you ~ my writing friends, who birth new worlds with me on a daily basis. I thought of you who are new to my personal writing journey and those are new to your own. But mostly my thoughts went to those of you who offered to donate such generous prizes to help me celebrate two milestones in my writing career. I was going to write a few lengthy paragraphs, expressing how special you've each made me feel, but I decided that quote already said exactly what I wanted to say.

I consider EACH of you my friend, thus each of you represents a part of my writer self yet to be explored, yet to grow, and yet to flourish. You also represent my strengths and successes. My only hope is that I can be the same for each of you.

Thank you.
