Thankful Thursday

1. Excedrin Migraine. It works on my sinus headaches enough to dull it painful but almost bearable.

2. I hit the deadline to get my critique in for our conference submission. Considering how long I have not been writing regularly this was huge.

3. I turned in several work-for-hire assignments and picked up two more.

4. Being laid off. I know I have said it before but I am really, really, really thankful to be home. It is going to take months still for my body to absorb all these changes but it is the right thing for me. I know it.

5. Friends who don't give up on me even when I am a major flake about things.

6. A husband who does it all - cooks, shops, cleans - and lets me work toward creating the literary life I crave.

I'm a lucky woman.

Yay for all the good things coming to you since you got laid-off! Um...#1--I use that stuff,too, and love it, but...the migraine med is exactly the same as the regular, if you can believe it. I think they must get away with it, because they don't charge anymore, but still...!

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
