One is Silver and the Other's Gold

A song I learned in Brownies keeps playing over in my mind.

Make new friends, but keep the old.
One is silver and the other's gold.
A circle's round. It has no end.
That's how long I want to be your friend.

You probably don't know that in the midst of all our exciting new beginnings, we're bidding farewell to Amparo Ortiz as an Operation Awesome blogger. 

Thank you to Amparo for being instrumental in Operation Awesome's pay-it-forward theme, and helping us to find new and useful ways to help other writers. The New Year's Revisions Conference we just had? Yep, Amparo's idea. 

Amparo, you will be greatly missed at OA. We anticipate lots of amazing guest posts from you in the future. 

Pretty please. :)


We'll be watching her writing career with interest, and you can still follow her adventures on her writing blog.

In case you managed to miss all the excitement here earlier this week, I'm talking about our new Operation Awesome blog members:

Angelica R. Jackson
Becky Mahoney
Max Gladstone
Abby Annis
Kellie DuBay Gillis
