Good Bye

I don’t know if there is anything in the world I hate more than saying good bye.  This class has been amazing, and not to be cliche, but I really can’t believe it’s over.  I mean, I really can’t.  It hasn’t quite clicked yet, and I’m not looking forward to the moment when it does.  I will probably melt in a puddle of depression.  So, I better write a good bye note before then. 😛

Ms. Gaines— You are such a wonderful teacher– one of the best I’ve ever had.  You made class so much fun, yet still taught us a lot.  Your own writing has been an inspiration to me this year (and I’m sure many others).  Thank you for teaching my favorite class I’ve ever taken!

Anne— I know you weren’t always able to write, but whenever you did, you blew me away with your talent.  You brought so much life to our class and I’m glad you were a part of it.  I can’t wait to read your future work!

Until then, here is a kitty picture to inspire you.

James— Well, I never expected to meet up with you again!  It was a fun surprise, and I enjoyed getting to know you again this year.  I love your writing style; you have a gift for science fiction.

Jessica— I loved being in class with you this year!  I’ve enjoyed reading your writing, and I hope you love it in Pittsburgh.  If I end up moving to Massachusetts, I hope I can meet you. 🙂

Julie— I admire how you can make your audience both laugh and cry.  I’ve loved having you in class and reading your daily funny posts.  (And it’s always fun to meet another Percy Jackson fan)

Kasey— Your gift in poetry has inspired me to improve my skills.  One day I hope to do it as well as you.  You were a wonderful addition to our class, and I wish you the best for college next year.

Kayla— I love your affinity with all things nonsense and your individuality.  Your writing is beautiful, and I enjoyed the sarcastic sense of humor you brought to the classroom.

Kendra— You have so much talent, and not just in writing.  I’ve enjoyed the art and music you’ve shared with us. Your stories are adorable, and I could totally see you as a children’s author.

Luke— Wow!  You really won a lot of awards.  And they were all well- deserved.  You brought a lot of fun and humor to our class this year.  I look forward to your future work!

Mara— You’ve been so much fun to have in class!  I love how your enthusiasm and upbeat personality shines through your writing.  Stay awesome!

Rachel K— You’re so sweet and supportive and I’m so happy you were in class this year.  I don’t know how you managed to keep up with everyone’s writing and give encouraging comments!  And I love your writing style; it’s truly beautiful.

Rachel R— Ah, the reference queen!  You do a great job keeping your writing funny and exciting while providing good character development.  I appreciate the support you gave me this year and can’t wait for your future work.

Sam— Our own Nicholas Sparks!  I loved the humor you brought to our class and the drama in your writing.  Congratulations on escaping gp5 music graduating!

Tabitha— I loved having you as a partner!  Thank you for all the input you put into my novel (and my other work).  You have a beautiful writing style and I look forward to the rest of your work.  I wish you the best for college next year!

Valari— You’re such a talented writer and I really enjoyed being in class with you this year!  Your creativity really shows through your work.  Thank you for all of the support you’ve given me with my own writing.

Victoria— Of course I had to add you too!  Although you haven’t been an official part of the class this year, your faithful support definitely earns you an honorary membership.  Thank you for all of the feedback you’ve given on my writing!  I love reading your work and can’t wait to see what you come up with next year.

Each and every one of you have been a blessing to me this year, and I’m going to miss you all.  Keep blogging, because the world needs your writing.  I look forward to the day when I can see your books in print. 🙂  And we need to keep writing A Collision of Worlds.  I believe in it.  All that to say, I wish you all a very fond farewell.

(Yeah, I stole the line)

By the way, some of you have asked about my post Contact Me.  It has all my contact information if you want to keep in touch.  Oh yeah, and the password is purpleeys.  What else?

Here are some good bye songs to make you more depressed help you deal with the pain.

  1. Oh my word, you gave me a mini-heart attack when I saw my name at the end there. It has definitely been a pleasure reading your work, and I hope you continue writing and posting more.

  3. Well, it’s nice that you wrote them all a goodbye. 🙂 I’m sad to say I didn’t do that for my CW class. =/ Then again, I never really did say goodbye. After all, I’m still here aren’t I? =P It’s been great catching up on all your posts. =)

    1. I would have included you, but I didn’t think you’d read the post. 😦 Thanks for always being so faithful to keep up with our blogs! I know it has meant a lot to all of us.


      1. Hey, it’s ok. 🙂 I’m just working back through and reading everyone’s posts. I didn’t expect to be on here at all. You’re welcome. 🙂 I always try to give encouragement when I can.
