Thankful Thursday

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. There's a new post and it's not Wednesday. I'm inspired by Oasis for YA bloggers to post what I'm thankful for:

1. My family. I have an unconditional springboard for creative release with them. They understand me and, yet they still love me. Yeah, I got a little mushy.

2. Writing. Yes, I'm thankful for it. It's my means of release and my sanity. Who wants the world in black and white - I want full technicolor. With writing, I don't have to wait for someone else to give me thrills. I can do it myself.

3. Lastly, certainly not least, I'm thankful for the chocolate cake with chocolate fudge frosting sitting on my counter top. I've got to get off here before everybody gets home. I need to eat that last piece.

The highly generous Oasis for YA bloggers are offering a free critique from all five bloggers. Yes, I said that right. All five bloggers will critique your work. They'll either critique your query or your first chapter. So hurry on over. You must join the site to particpate for a chance to win but if you're a writer you should already be a member. There's so much going on over there. You won't regret it! I promise.

Have a great day. Don't forget to read a book. And laugh-out-loud. That's an order!


  1. Okay, Dawn this is the second time I've heard you mention that cake and I really want some. I'm drooling on my laptop right now.

  2. LOL, Kelly. I'll make sure to eat it all today, as not to tempt you anymore. LOL

  3. Dawn - thanks so much for the Oasis shout-out! But umm... can you share some of that cake? You're making my mouth water over here. So not fair!
    You've definitely picked some amazing things to be thankful for. Hope you'll keep sharing with us each week.

  4. No problem, Jessie. Oh, and I ate the rest of the cake yesterday. LOL

  5. Hi Dawn! I am catching up on my blog visits and I am going to pass this information on to my friend who is writing YA fiction/paranormal. She would be very interested! Did you submit your query? How many agents? Exciting!!

  6. Hey, Adrian. I did submit the query to one agent. Then I stopped. I saw some things I wanted to change. Thanks for checking in on me. I'll be sending it out in about a month. I'll keep everyone posted on the blog. Thanks!!!


Please share your thoughts. We promise not to stone you for it.
