Thankful Thursday

Big Smiles!

Are you a Giver or a Taker? I think we need to balance on both sides of the coin. But, remember, give with a grateful heart and receive with a thankful soul.

Some people are always grumbling
because roses have thorns;
I am thankful
that thorns have roses.
~ Alphonse Karr



Today, I am thankful for…

The smell of autumn crisp in the breeze, leaves that begin to crunch.

An excited feeling in my belly that something amazing is on the horizon.

Time to write for two hours last Friday afternoon – and the scene I wrote rich with sensory details and symbolism.

Audio books!! Just finished The History of Love, Nicole Kraus. Now, I’m “reading” Go Put Your Strengths to Work, Marcus Buckingham.

Warm fuzzies still floating around my head and heart from this year’s Summer Writing Studio! (I’m working on a series of posts from the  prompts & exercises we  used in Studio)

Thankful Thursday

Big Smiles!

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

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson


Today, I am thankful for…

Getting to meet Maggie Stiefvater in person and having her sign not only all 3 books in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, but my canvas writing bag, as well!

Listening to the soundtrack from Into the Wild and dreaming of my future.

That my family respects and honors my time and space to workout daily.

Turbo Jam! Woot! Woot!

A flurry of young writers anxious to sign up for the Summer Writing Studio! (Hurry! Only a few spaces left!)
