“Happy Thankswriting”

Thxgiving Dinner_wmk

This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for everything in my life: Family, friends, my dogs, God, and the talent He has given me to write. I pause everyday and realize that my ability to write is no mistake and was infused into me at birth.

I’ve always had a huge imagination as most children do. I couldn’t help but carry it forward into young adulthood and beyond to become a professional writer as my career. Though currently unpublished in the children’s book arena, I believe it’s just a matter of time.

So this Turkey Day I coined the phrase “Thankswriting,” because I count my tons of messy rough drafts, revisions, and even rejections as blessings ever moving me farther ahead and developing me into a better writer and eventually a children’s book author. In the meantime, please pass the cranberries!

Your input: What are you thankful for in your writing and/or non-writing life/world?

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! I’m thankful for so many things with people and health topping the list. And yes, writing, too! I feel fortunate to have the time to give to writing (even if I sometimes put it off to do other things…). Hope the coming year brings extra good writing news for you!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Marcia! Great things to be thankful for. I’m also thankful for your posts, and the many authors/illustrators you ‘introduce’ me to each time. Thank you for the well wishes!
