Hi again for week two to all my wonderful friends,
Additional advice from fantastic motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar, who I’ve been reading every year from his daily calendar. Here’s the second reading from his Stairway to the Top step-up plan:
“The second step is the recognition of the worth and ability of other people as well as the necessity of effectively living and working with them.”
Do you find that to be true for you?
Stay tuned for more of Zig’s tidbits of truth.
All the best,

Absolutely true!! Sometimes, as an introvert, I’m tempted to huddle up and just write, write, write–which is okay and necessarily, but taking a break and being with my friends ALWAYS refreshes me! And helps me become a better writer.
I miss our Sixteen Thumbs, it was the catalyst for getting published and furthering my writing career. As BJ says, Good Writers Don’t Write Alone! Amen!
Sallie, one of the Thumbs, probably the pinky!
Never a pinky, girlfriend! Always a Thumb! It was the catalyst for all of us. And the reason I have achieved all that I have. I learned perseverance, patience, and persistence. Thank you, Thumb, Sallie!
Yes, I absolutely do find that to be true. Sometimes I bury myself with my own work and forget the importance of this. But I truly saw it in Sixteen Thumbs. A most inspiring reminder.
Ahhh…the Thumbs were sensational. Heavy-handed when necessary and pointed upward when there was cause for celebration. I learned so much and value the motivation, encouragement, and support of a writers group. Kudos to all of The Sixteen Thumbs! And thank you for the comment, Kay.
You inspired us all.
Kay Strom — an inspiration to MANY! You should see her at writers’ conferences!
Oh my, yes! Writer’s Group was instrumental in learning, growing, and sharing successes as well as failures, um, non-acceptances.???? Still depend on many of them before any submission. Lovely gifts, all of the Sixteen Thumbs.????
Our Sixteen Thumbs writers group was instrumental in all of my accomplishments. It’s where I learned to be accountable, to produce quality work, to meet deadlines, and to pull myself up when I was down. With help from all of my Thumb friends, I have achieved much more than I ever thought possible. Thank you, Jean, and all the Thumbs!
Back to you, BJ. You were the glue. ????
Cohesive…that’s what The Sixteen Thumbs were/are. Like scotch tape, velcro, even glue. Hugs, Jean!
