More Than a Critique Partner

Wrap It Up ~ Blog Hop!

More Than a Critique Partner
I entered a query contest
Figured out I am not the best
(Actually worse than all the rest)
But I found you
Your comments and ideas in blue
Make my writing improve
Glum writing days of mine
You dust with sparkle and shine
With every inspiration and line
Pulling me through the icky and rough
On the journey to making my skin tough
Thank yous and smiles are not enough

If you'd like to join in, here's what you need to do:

Write a piece of flash fiction, poem, or song (300 words or less) for someone you know (real or imaginary). It may be in any genre, but it must have a holiday theme (real or fictional). Post it on your blog anytime between now and when the linky closes. You will then give it to that someone, sometime before the new year.

Check out Leigh Covington's blog to join the blog hop and for more information!

  8. Nicely done! Now I know why Cassie was so happy with her CP's, LOL. I think everyone of us posted something on Critique Partners on Monday.
