Month of Thanks: Day 7
Today I am thankful for my work as an author. It was a lifelong dream of mine to write books. I started writing when I was 16, but I was writing short stories and poetry long before then. I submitted my first manuscript at 19, but was rejected. I continued writing, but threw most of those typewritten manuscripts away. In 2012 I published my first draft of The Fine Line. It was terrible. However, when I was picked up by a publisher, it was worth it. Winning my independence as an author was even more rewarding. I still love writing. I have many books in my head as well as on my flash drive. I will get to those eventually. Writing has helped me deal with disappointment, but it also allowed me to put my education into practice. I may not be a best seller, and I may never be, but it’s important to pat yourself on the back when you reach personal milestones. So, today I am thankful for this accomplished dream.
