So Much To Be Thankful For

This year I have so much to be thankful for (some of which I can't announce yet, but soon, my lovelies, soon!) that I feel truly blessed. It has been a hard year with the loss of loved ones, but karma is at last balancing itself out a bit. I'm reminded of all that I have, and am grateful beyond measure. You, my readers and writer friends are top among the things I am thankful for. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by people you love, and blessed with much to be thankful for.  What are you thankful for this year?

Come Together For Change

My heart breaks for France, Syria, and all nations enduring violence. On one hand, I wish for peace, on the other, I realize those people in France enjoying a soccer game, concert, or just dinner were enjoying peace before it was torn from them. I don't know what the answer is, but I do know that the world is headed in a dark direction and if we don't change the course, the future will be anything but bright. Regardless of the impending darkness, I will rage, rage against the dying of the light. Change comes from the great minds of those who come together. And it is time to come together. I will find inspiration in the acts of kindness and hope within the stories of darkness and chaos. I hope you will too.  

Inspiration from NaNoWriMo

If you spend much time on the web you've probably heard the shortened version of this header, NaNoWriMo. For those who don't know what it is, NaNoWriMo is a month where writers of all kinds come together to encourage one another to pump out words. 50K in 30 days is the goal, though no one minds if you fall a bit short. The spirit of NaNoWriMo is to get words on the page by dedicating an entire month to your writing. Unfortunately, I'm buried in edits of varies types and life is crazy hectic this year for me, so I won't be able to take part. But, I'll be cheering from the sidelines for those who are! Every time I see a tweet or Facebook update from one of you about your NaNoWriMo progress it encourages me to pick up the pencil and do a bit of writing myself. You are my inspiration not only this week, but the entire month of November and I want to say thank you. I certainly won't be getting in 50k, but every word is progress. :) Are you participating? If so

Happy Veteran's Day

Wishing a very happy Veteran's Day to all those who serve (or have served) our country in all the many ways, and to their families and loved ones who support them.
