Thankful Thursday

Big Smiles!

As writers, we need to step outside ourselves and connect with the positive energy around us. And give back.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

~ Oprah Winfrey

  1. Just found you through Deborah Halvorsen’s website. You seem to be a cool writing entrepreneur. And we are both in Illinois. Do you go to SCBWI, particularly the weekend writers conferences?

    • Hey there! Thanks for the compliment : ) No, I haven’t gone to any SCBWI conferences, but it is on top of my list to become a member. I assume you’re a member? Send me an email, we’ll chat some more! mjcwriter”at”comcast”dot”net
