|I'm not sure how many of you know this, but Writing.Com is a family-business, run by a husband and wife team. We are known on Writing.Com as StoryMaster and StoryMistress, a play on "webmaster" and "webmistress" way back when. Thirteen years ago, we started and built our writing community with everything we had and we're still going strong. It means the world to us.
We received a video tonight from members of our online community... I can't even begin to put into words what this did for our hearts. Seriously, I can't. I was welling at less than a minute and then the "thank you" closer really got me. So, a huge shout out to the Writing.Com fans who put this together secretly and just so beautifully...
