Happy Thanksgiving

It falls to me, happily, to wish you and yours a most excellent Thanksgiving.

I am grateful to Cynthia Kuhn for pulling together a magnificent group of writers.

I am grateful to you, our readers and commenters.

I am grateful to the Nancy Drew mysteries, to Tolkien, Lessing, Hess, and a plethora of other writers for getting me reading.

I am grateful to Fred Chappell, Joanna Russ, and Robert McKee for teaching me so much about writing.

I am grateful to my critique partners far and wide for helping me hone my craft.

I am grateful to my fans who want to read more of my words.

I am grateful to the wildly beautiful and bewildering world we live in that keeps inspiring me to tell stories.

Now for a tryptophan-induced nap.

Happy Thanksgiving.

  1. Reblogged this on Theresa Crater and commented:

    So many spiritual teachers say being grateful is a key to turning your life around. I’m also grateful for the adventures Stephen and I share, our cats, our books, the tours he’s taken me on, his interviews, our house, teaching, family, the beautiful mountains out my window. Here’s a list of only a few things I’m grateful for related to writing that I posted on Mysteristas today.
