Friends, tomorrow is my favorite holidays–a celebration of food, family, and fun. It is also an opportunity for me to count my blessings. Here are a few of the blessings in my writing life I am grateful for–a short list before I prep the pie crust for the dessert making marathon with the nieces tomorrow.
I am grateful for my agent, and for the publishers I am working with. Being a published author is a dream come true–I will never not be grateful for my ticket on this ride.
I am grateful for Scrivener.
I am grateful for Paula Munier’s Plot Perfect. Third time I’ve used it. I reread it every time, buy my pack of index cards, and dive in.
I am grateful for my community of writers, most of whom I know through Sisters in Crime.
I am grateful for the piles and piles (and piles) of books on my To Be Read pile, and on my Kindle.
Happy Thanksgiving friends who celebrate. For others, make a pie anyway.
