Thursday's Children - Thankfulness

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I thought I'd post about all the things I'm thankful for - at least the things that pertain to my writing. If I listed all the things I'm thankful for, we'd be here for weeks.

So in no particular order, here they are: My family - husband, sons, brothers, sister, mom, nieces, nephews, dad, stepmom - they get me and they're supportive of what I do, proud of me, they want me to succeed and are great at picking up the slack when deadline time rolls around.

My friends - they're also supportive, want me to succeed and will brainstorm plots with me, challenge me and commiserate with me.

My blogger and author friends - they inspire me every day and help keep me motivated.

My favorite authors - they provide me with hours of reading material that never fails to inspire me.

My editing day job - I love what I do, I love my authors, and I love my relatively flexible schedule that allows me to stay home with my kids and pursue the job I love most.

My other writing gig - see above. :)

My kitties - for keeping me company during the day and unconditional love.

My computer - super grateful to have this. I can't imagine writing books by hand.

My waterproof note pad - there's nothing better than being able to write down my creativity surges while in the shower.

The ideas that keep me writing - it's always a wonderful discovery even if I think I know what's going to happen.

The world around me - it's full of beauty, magic and inspiration everywhere I look.

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you a wonderful holiday! Don't forget to share what you're thankful for. :)

  1. No kidding about computers. I wrote part of a novel (ages ago) longhand. Crikey, just the idea of revising/editing something that took SO much effort and SUCH writer's cramp, lol.

    1. I had a horrible moment of panic today. My computer shut itself off while I was in the middle of checking email and my first thought was "NO! I can't write the rest of this book by hand!" Happily, hubby fixed it! I should have added In-house IT to my list of things to be thankful for!

  2. Lots of great things and people to be grateful for. You have a waterproof notebook? How does that work? I'd like one too.

  4. What an awesome list! You should print this out and stick it up on a mirror somewhere.... just to always keep in mind, whenever you may lose steam with your writing. You've got it good!
