13 Reasons I Luuurve My Critique Partner

I'm doing this because I think my CP-Crystal Jordan- thought I wouldn't lol.

1. Because she is a hawt erotic paranormal author. Have you read her Wereplanet series? In Ice anyone? And wait until you see In Smoke-coming out June 1st. Whew! I'm hoping she rubs off on me.

2. Because she calls me when she's flossing her teeth or going grocery shopping...just to say hi.

3. Because she told me to. She said "dooo eeeet!"

4. Because she's bloody brilliant about history, the business end of writing, dirty dirty sex, blog code...you name it.

5. Because she knows the best cuss words.

6. Because she talks to my Cookie on the phone about inedible garnishes and the proper way to....okay they talk about things that make me blush.

7. Did I mention she was talented?

8. Without her, and a few other wonderful writer friends, I would not have made it as far as I have.

9. Because she sings to me when I'm bored. {except for the worm song-dont sing the worm song!}

10. I am a better writer because of her help.

11. She is the QUEEN of blurbs and excerpts!

12. Because she makes me laugh.

13. Because she's saving me a room in her mansion/commune when she's famous. As long as I bring my husband the Chef. ;)

Critique partners are worth their weight in gold. Someday I plan for me and mine to have Chat With... workshops at RWA Nationals. :D

Aww, that's nice. Aren't CP's awesome? My CP is great too and so suited for me.

That's cool that you talk to Crystal on the phone. Immi and I haven't done that yet. Hmmm, might be the 8 hour time difference.

yeah - Crystal IS uber cool. And this is a great post. My CP doesn't sing to me, or call me when she's flossing (okay, yay that) but she does kick my butt REAL good. Ya gotta love someone that can take you to the mat.

RG, after reading the excerpts from your upcoming EC release, I'd have to say she HAS rubbed off on you.
She sings in my ear too, whether I'm bored or not. I usually get Gretchen Wilson "All Jacked up". I wonder why? LOL.
And Heather, Crystal doesn't blush. I wanna hear the worm song. Please?
