Thanksgiving Post

Thanksgiving is here, so it’s time for some gratitude! I’m thankful for a ton of stuff in my life, of course, but here are some things I’m thankful for as a writer:

A husband who supports my writing career and understands the time it takes.

Kids who totally have my back, including an eldest who beta-reads for me.

Amazing CPs and beta readers who give truly insightful and useful feedback.

A writing community that never ceases to be incredibly supportive and full of deep wisdom and awesomeness.

An agent who totally GETS my writing, suggests brilliant edits, is both professional and easy to talk to, and is an all-around fantastic champion.

Writing can be a lonely muse, but WOW is it better and easier and plain more successful when you have awesome people backing you up. I am so glad to have all of you. Thank you.
