We’re so happy Thanksgiving has finally arrived! We’re currently relaxing with family, but wanted to show our gratitude via gifs. As you’re munching on your favorite Thanksgiving foods, mull over our list of things we as authors/bloggers are grateful for.
Pictures of cats with books
Followers (we have over 100 and I can’t believe this many people like us and we haven’t even published anything yet!)
Books I read growing up (an obvious one)
Bookshelves specifically filled with books
Family (our parents and siblings support us no matter how long the writing process takes!)
Our past, present, and future beta readers.
Mugs filled with cocoa
All forms of social media
Kind and encouraging comments
My editing job
Pinterest boards full of book inspiration
Fellow writing/blogging friends
The friggin English language (which lets me get away with using words like friggin)
MS Word/Track Changes (I met this one long before Travis)
Goodreads (for keeping track of the book list I’ll never have time to finish)
Strong female characters
Em dashes (the longest of the dashes but the shortest way to my heart)
Beautiful book covers
Excellent, well-needed, yet encouraging criticism
Gchat conversation with my coworker besties
Chicago Manual of Style
What are you all grateful for—did we leave anything out? We hope your holidays are peaceful—especially you NaNoWriMo people.
