I'm Thankful for FF&P--My Last Day as Co-Blog Mistress by Rebecca Zanetti

Hi all!  Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the USA, and Happy end of November to members living elsewhere.  I hope this week finds you happy, healthy, and surrounded by friends and family.  (And I hope those voices in your head keep talking & giving you ideas for stories!)

This is my last blog as co-blog mistress for FF&P, but I hope to guest blog in the future.  I just need a little break to take some time and relax a little bit.  With a hubby, two kids, three animals, multiple family members, three publishers, six book releases this year and six slated for next year…I need to breathe.  J
FF&P was the first chapter I joined and became really involved with…back in 2009.  I met some of my first writing friends here, and I learned a lot from both the Mudpuddle and from taking numerous workshops.  I also believe very strongly that my first book came out with good sales because of the friends I made at FF&P.  We’ve always helped each other, and we’ve always cheered each other on.

If you’ve been here a while, you know exactly what I mean.  If you’re new, you’re going to love it.  Make sure you jump in and get involved as soon as you’re ready…because you won’t regret it.

Make friends and not connections. 
Friends are what count…and this business is tough.  It’s a roller coaster ride of requests & rejections, good sales & oops sales, great reviews & holy crap reviews…and it’s no fun being on a roller coaster alone.  Sometimes you want to hold someone’s hand when you’re upside down, and other times you want to encourage your buddy to lift her hands in the air as you swoosh down toward the earth.

I may have gone a bit too far with the analogy there…but hey, this is the place to do it.  We all hear voices and secretly think vampires might exist. J
Thank you for the opportunity to serve as co-blog mistress for this amazing chapter, and I’ll see you on the loop!  ~ RAZ

I can truthfully say I will miss your, Rebecca: my 'other half' here at the FF&P blog. I will strive to find someone who can step into your shoes. It will be tough. An organization like FF&P works because volunteers like you stepped forward.
p.s. HELP WANTED!
