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. :)
