We're only two days from Thanksgiving and I’ve been so busy writing lately I hadn’t given thought about what I might blog about today. I decided to share with everyone what I'm thankful for this year (regarding writing). Something happened two years ago, and BLAM, I stopped reading and writing. Just like that, I lost interest in both my favorite passions, and to this day, I’m not sure why. It was devastating, which sounds odd because one would think I could just pick it back up. I forced myself to read and couldn’t manage to finish a book. I started writing several times and couldn’t get past the first chapter. I truly did not know what to do to get my passion back. Even my husband was worried because I was slipping into a depression without those loves in my life.
For some reason this summer I found my interest in both again. Just like that, BLAM, there they were. I honestly never knew how much I lived for these passions, how much they drive me daily just to get out of bed, until they were gone. Cliché, I know, but there it is.
What are you thankful for?
