Today’s ramble was supposed to be about promotional pieces and the like, but with this being the day after Thanksgiving for the majority of my family and friends, I’d like to talk a little bit about being thankful and how it applies to us as writers.
We’ve all got lives outside of this writing gig that we’re trying to get into/stay in/succeed at/etc. We have work, friends, and families. We’re often required to make tough choices. Do we spend the evening hanging out with hubby on the couch or do we crank through another chapter? Do we cuddle the cat that’s pacing on the desk in front of the keyboard on the desk, or do we keep working on those cursed edits? Do you go out with your friends and drink copious amounts of wine?
Anyone who has any level of seriousness has asked themselves one of those questions or one very similar to that. We make tough calls, and sometimes.. the book wins. We don’t have a million hours in the day so some things fall by the wayside.
In this season of thankfulness, with more holidays right around the corner… I thought I might remind you to be thankful. Your husband loves you and supports your craft. Your cat will want to cuddle in an hour when you’re through.. and your friends think it’s completely badass that you’re writing a book!
Thank them for it. ❤
Happy Holidays to one and all!
