Dear 24 Carrot Writer,
What a year this has been!
If you had written
words and stories,
If you had queried,
or launched a book into this world.
If you had hustled with marketing,
or had dipped deep
into the well of online classes
to grow and improve your craft,
we applaud you.
And if, this year,
your pen was dry,
your fingers quiet,
your stories dormant,
because you had to be there for others,
because you had to take care of yourself,
we send you hugs and encouragement.
Because even if stories weren’t written,
they are still there:
until your heart can open up for them,
until your fingers can pen them.
So for now,
take a break.
You deserve it.
Cuddle with loved ones,
read fluffy novels,
watch tinsel movies.
And when you feel ready,
start dreaming -
gentle dreams about gentle goals.
But in the meantime,
all of us at 24 Carrot Writing
wish all of you a beautiful,
Amanda and the 24 Carrot Crew
