On this day after Thanksgiving, I thought I’d take a minute to celebrate some of the facets of writing that I’m really thankful for. Lots of times my writing challenges get center stage as I wrangle with the craft side of writing…or I work through the promotional side of it all.
So here, in now particular order are some of the things I love about writing:
The moment a character comes to life
When the beginning or end of the book falls into place
Feeling completely comfortable with the protagonist and knowing what she’d do in any situation
When the perfect chapter break happens
Writing on a rainy day
Writing outside on a pretty day
Seeing the book’s cover for the first time
Getting good feedback
Getting struck by a great idea and scrambling for paper
The support of the writing community
What are some of the things you love about writing? What keeps you going through writing frustrations and challenges?
