Being Thankful – Writer’s Edition
Here in the US, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day where families often gather around a groaning table, eat way too much, and maybe watch a little football. At one point during the holiday, most people share something they’re thankful for.
In her post on Monday, Kay asked readers what they were thankful for. While we routinely mention family, friends, health, creature comforts, and maybe a pet or two, I thought we could lighten up and look at things less lofty. Little things, “writer-specific” things.
Here are a few of the little writerly things I’m thankful for, in no particular order
- No work wardrobe
- No commute to work
- Post-it notes and foam core boards
- Legal tablets, red pens, and highlighters
- Red squiggly lines
- Word’s Read Aloud
- Indie publishing
- Critique partners
- Draft2Digital’s free conversion software
- My editor
- My readers
What about you? What writer-specific things are you thankful for? (Note: TKZ is a given!)
And Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
