As a TWV contributor, my monthly posts always followed Big Mike's by a couple of days - he was Friday, I was Sunday.
If I didn't have an idea for a post, Big Mike's would spark something.
And this month, he's giving me the same gift: a spark of an idea, to muse on the gratitude I feel for all he has given the CBG author community.
There are a lot of people who have reached out to me since I "came out" as an aspiring author. I appreciate all of them, but I don't tell them often enough how much they mean to me.
So, just one more suggestion to honor Big Mike:
Thank your mentors, those who encourage, support, and challenge you.
Say thank you, today.
