It makes sense since we’re counting down the minutes until Thanksgiving when we can indulge in a year’s worth of turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes to think about things we are thankful for.
Jane shared her thoughts on the subject earlier this week, and I found this piece from writersdigest.com with writers weighing in on why they’re thankful to be writers. There’s some humor to be found, but I also think that Brian Klem sums it up pretty nicely when he talks about his passion for writing (I wish I could say I leap out of bed every morning and rush to my computer!).
We’re all fortunate to work in a business where we can flex our creative muscles, be inspired each and every day by something new and exciting, develop long-term relationships with clients and editors who often become friends as well as colleagues, and for me personally, have the opportunity to do a job I love with the flexibility that a large young family requires.
So, I have a lot to be thankful for this year. And look forward to what tomorrow brings, and not just for the copious amounts of food I’ll be consuming. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
