Thirty Days of Thankfulness – Writers

One of my friends, the lovely and talented, Kristina Knight, always participates in #30DaysofThanks on Facebook and Twitter, and I decided to do the same this November. Kristina has a new release, too. First Love Again is her second Harlequin Superromance and it’s out now! Click on the picture below for links to purchase!

Back to the being thankful portion of this post…

Today I’m thankful for dear writer friends.

Friends like Kristina. We met several years ago, and we clicked right away! Sure, I suggested some dubious scenes during our brainstorming session, but she looked past my craziness. She’s my brainstorming roommate and an inspiration to me!

I’m blessed to be part of a local writer’s group. These ladies (and a few gentlemen) keep me motivated, have held my hand through hard times, have celebrated the good times, and continue to hold me accountable to moving forward with my dreams. Thank you, MVRAI!

I’m also thankful for all my close writer friends who don’t live near me, but we support each other through modern technology. What a blessing!

Then there are the writers who keep me in their hearts, and I keep them in mine. Maybe we only talk or email once or twice a year, but no matter. You bless me! I hope I bless you!

And I’m thankful for all the writers I have yet to meet. The ones who are living their dreams of being published authors and the ones who are persevering, patiently (and not so patiently) holding on until their break comes.

For all you writers out there, Michelle Lim has a new book out! Idea Sparking: 30 Idea Sparks to Write a Novel in a Monthย (linked)ย is only $0.99! I hope it sparks an idea for you!

  1. I’m thankful for you, too, Jill. You’re kindness and dedication to not only writing but to the people surrounding you is an inspiration.

    And, you know, those dubious ideas have led to quite a few GREAT memories! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Same here!! I almost pinched myself yesterday. I was able to take Sophie for a long walk at a local park–and I was in short sleeves! In Ohio–in November!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love it!

  2. I’m thankful for many things, including past, present and future blessings from our Lord. I’m also grateful for all the authors out there that are blessed with the gift of writing for fans like me. Thank you, Jill. I’m thankful for my family and friends. It’s a beautiful day today, and I’m thankful for that.

    1. Wow, Annie! Thank you so much! What a beautiful way to express your thanks–and I’m so with you–past, present and future blessings–thank you!
