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.
This week's topic:
What writing or publishing-related thing(s) are you most thankful for?
I think I’m most thankful that writing is something I enjoy. I’ve begun writing more seriously in the past year. I signed with my agent a few months ago, and am now learning the true meaning of the word patience as I wait to hear back from publishers. But honestly, none of that stuff really matters all that much to me.
I’ve always thought of writing as a hobby. It is the thing that I want to do whenever I have free minutes to fill. I love to write. It’s my favorite pastime. And that is what I’m thankful for. Of course I’m excited that maybe at some point in the future I’ll actually make money writing and be able to reprioritize my schedule enough to give myself more writing time. But that isn’t what I’m thankful for. I’m thankful that I want to fill my time with writing. I’m thankful that I’ve found something that I love.
What about you? What are you thankful for?
