Special Thanks for Non-Writing Influences

I do want to start some part of this now. Can't wait. (Which means I'm procrastinating NaNo, but I'm still going to do it.)

I would like to thank people who have provided fundamental inspiration. They don't necessarily know what they've done, they didn't necessarily mean to do it. Doesn't matter. It's not about writing, so those of you who inspire my writing are still, and always, my writing buddies and my writing inspiration and people I love dearly. I'm not going to try to list those.

First up: valverdi. Don't try to go see her LJ. She doesn't post. But some of you know who she is. She remains one of my important guiding lights because where she's going, I seem to be following.

Second up: scottedelman for reasons of a discussion we had at Capclave. Another rock in my life, not because he's doing it on purpose, but because he's a living example. Go read the title for his LJ. "Ever Tried. Ever Failed. No Matter. Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better." I'm starting to get that. And again, for me right now, it's not a writing thing.

Third up: Luc Reid's willpowerengine. Luc has been there, done that. These posts are sometimes behind where I am, sometimes ahead. But they make me think and they provide that incentive to keep going.

Fourth up: kellyoyo and planetalyx for 2 years of change and maintaining change and supporting each other through it all.

These five are proof positive that change is possible. That even though I've been there and done that, I should try to do it again. And again. Until I internalize change.

See? Someone knows who she is. And pointing her here would be a bad thing? But she knows. She knows. She's already providing support to others, just like she wanted to do.

A little soft-shoe in the morning!

You know what I mean, you do. Yes, I understand the 'aw, shucks' part. I'd feel the same way.

I don't know the other folks you mention but Scott was one of the founders of my critique group. He is also the reason my husband likes to go to cons with me. And come to think of it, he is the reason I know you!
