April is drawing to a close, and as I look back on the month, I'm thankful for so many things.

~My wonderful hosts for my mini-tour of Muddy-Fingered Midnights.

~National Poetry Month, making it cool to love and write poetry. 

~My critique group, who helped me get unstuck with the WIP.

~My friends who let me badger them with medical questions. (Why in-person research rocks).

~The Irish dance hard shoes given to my daughter for free. Riverdance, here we come!

~My new editing client. Excited to edit poetry! Woot!

~The cool series idea Stina gave me: "Stolen from Poets," in which I explain how to use poetic techniques in fiction. Stay tuned for more!

~The A-Z challenge making my blog slacking acceptable. Congrats to those who persevered with it!

What are you thankful for today?

  1. It's nice to stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and remember our blessings. I'm thankful for the beautiful spring days we've had the past week! It'll be nice to recall this cool, sunny weather when the hot, sultry days of summer arrive.

    Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

    1. I so agree. It's a lovely mid-60s here in Philly today. I am making notes about what feels comfortable to wear, since this is likely to be as warm as it gets when we go to the UK in June. (Thankful about that too, yessiree!)

  2. It's great to slow down and remember what we're thankful for. We all have so much good to give thanks for.

    1. Gratitude tends to come with built in rewards it seems. The more you adopt it, the better you feel.

    1. Thanks, Laura. I've been so busy drafting, I have a feeling the series will come catch as catch can, but please do stay tuned! :-)

  4. It's always great to look back and reflect on what we do have. I'm thankful to be on sub and to be finally working on my sequel. I'm also blessed to have so many amazingly supportive writers in my life. <3

    1. Those supportive writers will surely help during the nail-biting sub period! Hope you can let gratitude keep you energized as you work on your sequel.
