Be Thankful

I had promised myself I wasn’t going to fill this blog merely with links to other blogs, but Tin Pencil member Sue E. sent me the post Ten Commandments for the Happy Writer by the amazing Nathan Bransford (*blush* see previous post) and I was struck by how relevant commandment number nine is in the wake of Thanksgiving.

9. Be thankful for what you have. If you have the time to write you’re doing pretty well. There are millions of starving people around the world, and they’re not writing because they’re starving. If you’re writing: you’re doing just fine. Appreciate it.

We are very lucky. I know that I find myself whining with embarrassing regularity about my busy schedule, lack of time, so much to do, blah, blah, blah. But I’m busy because I get to do all of the stuff that I love. How lucky is that?

Read the rest of the commandments here. Thanks Sue!
