Day Twenty-Nine of my 365 days of Thankfulness

It took weeks for me to decide on a blogging challenge for 2022. I didn’t want to lose the momentum I achieved in 2021. The light bulb moment came while I got my morning steps in the gym. Ideas come to me when I walk. I know the plan isn’t original. After all, I know of people who have done the 365 days of thankfulness challenge. I’ve never attempted to express this level of gratitude in any official capacity. How hard can it be, right? This post expresses day twenty-nine of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day Twenty-Nine of my 365 days of Thankfulness

Day twenty-nine of my 365 days of thanksgiving revolves around editing the books I completed. A year ago, during the lockdown, I decided that I had a large body of work that needed cleaned up before I could share it with the world. My biggest problem centers around changing it every time I go over it. It’s the search for perfection that is driving me nuts. Anyway, I feel blessed to achieve the unrealistic goal of perfection.

Last year, I edited a collection of short stories I wrote for NaNoWriMo. I also went through Saving the Henhouse. I still have a couple of chapters left before I’m finished editing the first book in The Henhouse series. My big problem is I’ve collected about twenty-thousand extra words. Writers can get stuck in all sorts of weird places. The biggest challenge I have as a writer is sharing my work with the world. I plan to figure that out by the end of 2022. I’m blessed to have enough life left in me to have the chance.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.

  1. Editing is a good way to get inspired. It’s a good feeling when I can see what needs to be fixed. Objectivity in order to see our own story weaknesses is definitely something to put on our gratitude list. Hope you’re able to share your work with the world.
