Months ago, I joined a website,
fingertips calloused and swollen
mind clogged with words.
I begin to post thinking
"why not? Maybe it'll be helpful."
Little did I know what would happen.
It wasn't immediate, the recognition
at first my pieces slipped through the dashboard,
no praise given.
And then, one day, a comment.
Then a like.
Then a follow.
I posted more, wrote more.
Got reviews, improved,
sharpened the blade of my greatest weapon, my words.
My parents drifted apart.
And I had two homes.
The world shut down.
We were locked inside.
The world turned quiet.
But this... this was my third home that
connected me to the world.
You guys have no idea how happy I am right now.
One. Hundred. Followers.
I can't... gods, it means so much. When I first joined I never really expected people would like what I wrote, much less want to follow me for it. But apparently I was wrong, and it's never felt so good to have been incorrect.
So just to thank a few people:
Chaseoceans: You were the first person to ever like and comment on one of my pieces, and it made me so happy to see you liked something I wrote. Thanks for getting me going!
beth r.: For being you're usual hilarious self, please keep posting, your pieces always make me smile.
LindytheDarkRaven (#Spookified): pls never stop being a potterhead. Talking about who I would take to the WTW Yule Ball is something I never would have thought of XD. Lets get a WTW Convention!
mirkat: You only showed up like a week ago, but WOAH you are amazing. Seriously, 71 followers in that small amount of time is just a little insane. You're so kind and you always seem to be liking and commenting on my pieces. Thank you!!!
haunted.by.words (#queenie's halloween): Hey, we have differences. A LOT of them. That directly affect both of us. But Fangirling over Tower of Nero was so fun, and I'm glad we could have a discussion about what we believe without, ya know, going crazy.
FantasyOtter12: Thanks for your kind comments and support always. You were amazing from the start of that sci-fi/fantasy camp, and you're still amazing now.
seaomelette, therisingwriter, Tula.S, mooncake, and mindfruit (brainsssfruit): Hey CAs! You guys are awesome, and I am loving this ambassador ship so far. Thanks for reviewing and supporting me over the past month and a half. CAvengers Assemble! (Lauren I'm officially stealing that).
exilityy.jackskellington (#Queenie’s Halloween): My first follower, my best friend my wtw twin. Love you stupid.
AAAHHHH 100 FOLLOWERS!!! I can't believe it. Unfortunately I couldn't mention all of you, so I'll just say a general THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!
