Laughter, life, and romance under partly sunny skies.

I am thankful…

I am thankful that three years ago I decided it was time, and that if I really wanted to be a writer, I better get to it.

I am thankful that my husband supports this crazy venture, and if he’s not always into my work (I haven’t written any dirt-dry biographies of dead presidents, after all), he’s consistently enthusiastic and understanding when it comes my commitment to it.

I am thankful for the many, many, amazing and colorful writers I’ve connected with, both on-line and in person, who share their work with me and get it when my Facebook status reports a word-count or the number of pages I’ve edited or a new contract. You’ve truly made the journey worthwhile, and my life would be lesser without you.

I am thankful for my non-writer friends, who knew me before I had this obsession and are still willing to listen to my detailed plot summaries and character analysis over beer and crack chips.

I am thankful that my kids think it’s cool that their mother’s a writer.

And I am tremendously thankful that the ideas keep coming. Don’t want to poke at that one too much. Just, thanks.

I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving.

      And you thought all Rutherford B Hayes did was settle the Great Railroad Strike of 1877. There’s a reason he looks so pale in all those photographs…
      Thanks Mike! Happy Thanksgiving to you, too…

    Happy Thanksgiving, Liv! It was about three years ago that I, too, decided it was time to claim the title of “writer”. And your kids are pretty dang cool for thinking their mom is a writer. :)

  2. happy Thanksgiving Liv!! Hope it was filled with family and food and love. You’ve done so much since you made that decision. I hope you feel pride in addition to your gratefulness. I’m grateful that I have met you and the WANAs because it is great to travel along the road with friends who know a bit about what your journey entails.

      I’ve had a lovely day, Sara, and hope you have, too. And this ride wouldn’t be nearly as much fun without you and the other WANAs!
