It’s Thanksgiving here in the states. Had a great time with Mom and the kids, and my poor husband is having to work away from home. It was so sad – all he had for dinner was a turkey sandwich, a hot pocket, and an avocado.
Turkey with the trimmings, it was NOT.
Here we had a pretty nice holiday dinner, except for the pie. Someone gave us a Sara Lee pumpkin pie and I thought, “What the heck, we’ll cut a corner this year.” BIG mistake. Burnt on the top, stayed mushy in the middle. From now on, I’m sticking to crustless pumpkin pie – you can’t fail with it. Unless you’re more ungifted in the kitchen than I am! 😀 Anywho, it was chocolate chip cookies for us, and everyone was just fine with that. And I made up a gratitude list, writer style. Disclaimer: These proclamations are the author’s opinions only and do not reflect the opinion of the mass public. YET.
I’m Thankful For:
A plot that deepens with every chapter
Characters that rock
Fabulous names. Should’ve named my son Aden. LOVE IT.
People that breath fire. And other stuff I can’t do, but would like to.
Cool weapons. We’ll, I think battle axes and swords are cool. 😛
An outline that keeps me on target
Twists in the middle, twists in the end
Sprites and White Ladies
A killer hook
And a killer resolution.
Understanding of where the beast is at. I call it: potential publishable. 😉
Mass production of words. The doing has boosted my confidence in a big way.
I suffer from no lost manuscripts.
Or flash drives.
My family is more serious about me succeeding as an author. Yeah, it’s a good feeling.
The End. As in, it’s in sight. (Someone sing the hallelujah chorus for me, please!)
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you all enjoyed a wealth of family, friends, good food, and gratitude!
I LOVE your writer’s gratitude list!
