Wishing everyone celebrating a very happy Thanksgiving. It’s been a tough year and yet there is still so much to be grateful for. Thank you to everyone who has stood up for themselves, for others, for people in need. We’ve seen so much hatred flung about in recent months, but we’ve also seen love and truth and determination to get things back on a proper track and make our country a fair, safe harbor for all of its residents. I’m grateful for my friends and family, my wonderful clients and coworkers, and for all you lovely folks. Have a joyous holiday, and don’t forget to take a bit of personal time. Steal a half hour to write, or curl up with a good book. Enjoy!
Wishing a joyous holiday to everyone celebrating today. My thoughts especially go out to anyone who suffered storm damage as a result of Super-storm Sandy. Hoping you are all warm and safe and enjoying a good meal with loved ones.
For all you writers out there, whether you’re struggling through NaNoWriMo or just working on your latest project, may you find a wealth of inspiration and productivity.
Here in the U.S., we’re heading into the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Depending on how energetic I’m feeling, I might pop in with a post in the next few days, but it’s more likely that I’ll be happily ensconced on my couch with a huge stack of books for the duration.
So, I offer up some links to entertain. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you celebrating, and a wonderful weekend to the rest of you as well. Wishing you all good food, good company, safe travels, and much for which to be grateful.
