This month at Scene 13 we are talking about Thankfulness. As someone who feels pretty lucky in my life, where do I even begin? I am grateful for so many things that it’s impossible to list them all here. So today, I will focus on what I’m thankful for in my writing life:
*my sister, who was my first and toughest critic, for forcing me to work harder and make my stories better
*my critique partners, especially Jackie, who have put in countless hours reading, commenting, and giving advice on my manuscripts
*my publisher, Spencer Hill Press, who took a chance on a new writer and made my dream of publishing a book for teens come true
*my husband, who puts up with my writing time and encourages me every single day
*my readers, who make my writing worth every minute
*the bloggers who take the time to read and review my books
*my family, who support me and talk up my books to others
*my friends and coworkers who listen to me talk about writing and ask me how it’s going
*other authors, who take the time to write interesting stories that take me away from real life for a few hours
*and finally, I’m thankful for all the amazing agents, editors, publishers, and writers I have met since I began this writing journey.
What are you thankful for this month?
