In honor of Thanksgiving, we won’t be holding a critique round in November. Instead, I’d like to turn the blog into a collection of thank you notes!
Writing is a gift and that warrants an entire blog post, don’t you think?
Starting today, you’ll have a chance to write about something or someone you’re thankful for. Whether you’re a writer, simply love books, or just like to visit this site, I’d love to hear from you! You may be thankful for something related to your writing, or you may be thankful for something else. Whatever that is, go ahead and write about it! Then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll post your message and everyone else’s on the blog the day before Thanksgiving.
So, what are you thankful for this year?
A favorite book?
When your favorite book is made into a movie?
Quiet time spent writing in your journal?
The fact that you finally finished writing your first short story?
When your mom says, “Yes,” after you beg for just 5 more minutes to finish a chapter before bedtime?
Or even just your mom?
Whatever it is that you’re thankful for, why not write about it? We all have so much to be thankful for, but we’re not always comfortable saying it out loud. (We are writers after all, right??) So what better way to say it, then to write about it on swirl and spark?
So please send me your messages. Grab a pen and paper, turn on your computer, or open up your Plain Text app. Then write your message. You’ll be amazed how easy it is to share when you’re truly thankful for what you’re writing about. 🙂
