Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.
We’d love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link — or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.
This Week’s Topic:
What writing or publishing-related thing(s) are you most thankful for?
There are so many great things about the writing world that I’m grateful for!
First off is books. I wouldn’t be here without them! They taught me to love the written word. (The first novel I read was The Neverending Story. My mom, an avid reader, was determined that I would become one too. So she made me read every day for 30 minutes. It took me 6 months to read the book, and I fought the whole way, but when I closed the back cover on that book, I was hooked.)
Second is inspiration and ideas. I wouldn’t be here without them either. I love my characters–all of them. They keep me company at night as I try to fall asleep.
And third is the writing community. I’ve posted about it before, but seriously … y’all rock. I love hobnobbing with other writers, talking shop and all that. And you guys–fellow bloggers–make me so happy! I get to connect with other writers every day because of this wonderful blogging community. So for that I say a big ol’ THANKS!
What about you? What are you grateful for?
Also, HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I’m going to eat pie and birthday cake, because tomorrow’s also my birthday. So that’ll be fun.
