Now that I am back from rehabbing, both on my manuscripts and on my lower back for running, I see they both take the same trajectory. For each, I have a support group of 3 people. Three people in my critique group, and three people for early morning runs along the marsh and bay. Both groups are an endless source of advice, comments, support, direction, shoulders, tough love, and more. All of us have had significant injuries. All of us are back, changed, revised and recognizing that the old way of doing things can go on no longer. I am truly grateful for these two wonderful groups of people. They keep me moving, writing and ever improving. They provide the fuel that keeps me revising and running, always to get the best result.
