Personal Reflection

Happy Thanksgiving!

To all my American friends, Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for giving.

And I hope you give thanks today, tomorrow, every day. 

I took a moment just now to reflect on how grateful and thankful I am.

But I also realized I want to start giving back more. I’m not sure how. I just know I can do better.

I want to be someone who can give all the time without expecting something in return.

I want to give to people who helped me get to where I am today.

I want to give back to you. 

Writing

Flattered And Insulted

It’s flattering but insulting when someone thinks that something you wrote was written by someone else.

I like creating my own content and writing my own words. I don’t like copying others or stealing intellectual property.

When I use work that isn’t my own, I cite it. I give full credit. As a creator myself, I respect creators and their creations.

I shall go nurse my wounds since I’m flattered and insulted right now. Don’t mind me.

Also to all my American friends, Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you everyone for continuing to put up with me.

Personal Reflection

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

And even if it isn’t Thanksgiving where you are or you don’t celebrate for whatever reason, take a moment to be thankful today.

Every day.

You can never be too grateful or appreciative.

I won’t bore you with a long list of what I’m thankful for. I’ll save that for my journal.

Blogging

A Confused Blogger

Some days I don’t feel like blogging at all. But at the same time, I still want to.

This confuses me. Why my mind can’t make up its mind blows my mind.

Oh, Happy Thanksgiving to anyone who celebrates it. It’s also Columbus Day today.

Writing

Happy Thanksgiving…Are Writers Allowed To Have A Day Off?

The simple answer to that question posed in the title of this post is no.

Do you honestly think you deserve a break from work just because everyone else does too?

Didn’t you sign a contract that explicitly told you that you’ll be working 365 days a year or 366 days in leap years?

Don’t you remember as a writer you don’t get to have the same privileges as a normal working person?

I’m kidding. If you desperately need a holiday to recharge your batteries, go ahead. If you are willing to spend this Thanksgiving plowing away at a poem, story, manuscript, etc., be my guest.

Happy Thanksgiving Day if you’re Canadian!

Happy Columbus Day if you’re American!

Happy Thanksgiving
