My Writer's Thankful List

I am thankful I stopped thinking about it and started writing.

I am thankful God gave me the imagination needed to be a children's writer.

I am thankful to have the time to put my thoughts into words.

I am thankful I write a column for children.

I am thankful I had a short story published in an anthology.

I am thankful I belong to a writer's group.

I am thankful to be surrounded by books.

I am thankful to have my writing friends to encourage me each day.

I do not have an agent, I do not have a publisher, and none of my children's stories are published yet, but . . .

I am glad my thankful list is larger than my do not have list, and that brings a smile to my face.

Comment and let us know what brings a smile to your writer's face, so we can smile, too.


  1. I love the positive attitude. Having more on the blessing side is always a blessing in and of itself. I'm thankful for the support of my family and friends as I pursue my writing career.

  2. I'm not a writer, but I'm a reader. And I'm do some editing now and again.

    What brings a smile to my face this week? Friends, Family, God, Life and PIE!

  3. What a wonderful list! I'm thankful for you, Miss Janet. You always leave me such wonderful comments on my blog. Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Janet, I enjoyed reading your writer's thankful list. Mine is pretty much the same as yours, but I will add that I'm thankful for having stories included in two Chicken Soup for the Soul books this fall.

    Keep up the great work and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
