THANKFULNESS

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?

  1. Morning, Kim!! This is a great list. Getting a book from your thought bubble into readers hands is a huge process that involves many people. I don’t think any of us would manage it without a LOT of help along the way. Today, I’m also thankful for the people in my life who never made me doubt myself for a minute! The older I get, the more I realize what a precious gift it has been that no one close to me ever suggested I couldn’t succeed!
