Every writer you know is currently in a different stage of their “writing journey.” Everyone is in a different place, struggling with different aspects of the writing process for many different reasons. This can make writing feel isolating – as if you are the only one going through what you’re going through.
I’m here to remind you today, briefly, that you are certainly not alone in this. And even though it may seem as if you aren’t making any progress at all, take some time today to give thanks for how far you have come … And/or how far you have yet to go.
Whether you are just starting out as a writer, have always dreamt of writing but haven’t started yet or you have already made great progress toward your writing goals, be thankful. There is a dream still alive inside of you, even if buried deep down. That alone, if you let it, will take you further than you haves ever been before. And I’m so, so happy for you. I truly am.
Happy Thanksgiving, to all my US readers. And to everyone else – be thankful anyway. You can never go wrong with thankfulness.
