Day 278 of my 365 Days of thankfulness

Another month in 2022 is in my rearview mirror on my road to express thankfulness. This adventure sometimes becomes a challenging task, but I’m discovering so many things to be thankful for each day. Focusing on the positive despite all the tragedies in the world makes me happy. It motivates me to work toward positive change. Being grateful drives away fear. I can see so many potholes in the road, but I start my day searching for the blessings in my life. These events or things might seem small and insignificant, but they add up to a giant pile of happiness at the end of the road. I am inviting you to come along for the ride. Why don’t we all travel the road of gratefulness in June? This post covers day 278 of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day 278 of my 365 Days of thankfulness

On day 278 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful to be through the first edit of Chicks Gone Wild. My goal was to review the book once before NaNoWriMo started on November 1st. I always participate in this writing marathon. I always found it to be a creative adventure. I started the editing process earlier this year but put it aside when I got an idea for a book. I have learned much about the writing process over the past eight years. I used to dread the editing process. I now know that editing is where artistry takes place. It’s where the plot gets defined, and mistakes are corrected. I won’t fool myself. Chicks gone Wild still isn’t perfect, but it is better than it was when I started. I am grateful to have taken the journey through this book again.
