A Writer’s Gratitude List

Hello all you pre-Thanksgiving writers, it’s Adair Heitmann here writing to you today about gratitude. Here’s my list, what’s on yours?

1. hands to write with
2. eyes to see
3. a nose to sniff out a good story
4. ears to hear
5. a sense of taste from which I can describe my world
6. touch – one of the hardest senses to describe in words, but one of the sweetest
7. the Internet
8. journals of all sizes, shapes, colors, textures, and kinds
9. pens, paper, bark, charcoal, paint, even a hammer and chisel, anything to incise my words, making them permanent
10. writing contests – to keep me percolating in my writer’s craft
11. agents, of course
12. readers, of course
13. my heart – that swells to fullness when I communicate
14. publishers
15. my writing critique group
16. friends that love me and my writing just the way I am
17. social media
18. libraries
19. book stores, especially the independent ones
20. trees from which the printed word can last for generations

Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

Keep on writing!
