I really wanted to thank you for all you do for this site. You are not just the site administrator. You are a great friend. When others might’ve given up, you came through as a leader that has kept the moderators and the site together. You’ve written classes and given them, not just for the short haul but for years. Most do not understand the sacrifices you’ve made and the time you’ve put in to keep FM going. For most writers, you have given us a place to meet up on the web. You have given us a home online. And you have done all this without asking for anything for yourself. Thank you so much, Zette. You are appreciated more than you can imagine.

Hey, Zette, thank you for all you do! I had a little more to say here: http://polarbear60.org/randr/2012/09/17/secret-zette-appreciation-day/ (It's a secret -- go look.)

Zette,

I admire and respect you, and I appreciate what you do for others more than I can say. You're very special.

Thank you.

Dear Zette,

The biggest effect your wonderful site has on me is the encouragement of the users. I am one of those for whom writing is more in the hobby section of my life. I have more pressing works that keep me busy and though I enjoy writing it is not at the forefront of my schedule. The encouragement and the great help I get from anyone when I ask it and the information on the boards and discussions are inspiring. Your work on this site has made it feel like a comfortable chair in a sunny corner, the words of the site a good book in my hands. This site and the community it has drawn means more to me that I can express. Thank you for your work, and all the other mods as well, for making this site what it is today.

With admoration,

Piskie

Zette, I'm so glad you accepted the mantle of site owner when Holly wished to pass it on. I don't know what I would have done without this site. Even though I'm not active on the boards, I do appreciate the site and all it does for people. Your willingness to keep the site going means a lot to all of us, even to people who aren't aware of just what goes on in the background.

On a more personal note, I enjoy hanging out with you in the chat rooms and appreciate your willingness to let me ramble on about my writing issues. Your advice and comments about it mean more to me than you know. You are so inspiring to me.

Lady you are amazing, you keep this site going, despite it all.

Thank you. No really, THANK YOU.

I fear I fall short in showing how much I appreciate everything you do.

Zette,

Every time I come to this site, I am always greeted by a plethora of good information and even better people in this great community. I know without your hard work on maintaining this, FM wouldn't be the great place it is. I thank you for all the tips, all the long hours, and just being so available here. (I've been to plenty forums where moderators tend, but do not engage.)

May you always find time to do what you love,

Chandra (Gryps Incedio)

Zette - thanks for all that you do (and at times with the craziness of this site all that you DON'T do!). You're awesome.

And last night I forgot to put up a link to my own blog. I think that tells you how tired I was.

Anyway, here it is. And thank you for all you do, Zette!

I would have quit writing if not for this site because my family thinks it's a waste of time.

THANK YOU! It's not easy keeping big sites going and it can feel very unappreciated sometimes!

That's so sad, and yet I've heard so many other writers say the same thing. I'm fortunate that my family supports my writing and is constantly asking what project I'm working on.

I'm glad you found this site, then! Keep writing!

Zette, you're an amazing person. Thank you for running this site, and being a friend and mentor for writers. I don't know where I'd be without this site and the friends I have made. THANK YOU!

Zette has helped me with many a writing quandary with patience and very often bouts of brilliance. She's also been a great mod, making the chat community a nice relaxing place. I'm happy that she's here to maintain the site and keep Vision running as well as the myriad of other things she does, because for writing stuff, there is no place else I'd rather be.


Thanks, Zette!
