What an amazing time of year. The holiday season is always filled with such hope, beauty and love.
This is the perfect time to consider all the wonderful blessings we’ve experienced this past year. I’m especially thankful we decided to stay in Seattle and not visit family in Chicago. Oh, I miss them, sure, but if we’d tried to get out this year, I would have been writing this from Sea-Tac airport. We got hit with am amazing amount of snow for our part of the country (Seattle). And yes, I’m blessed with owning a four-wheel drive vehicle ☺.
This year has been one of people blessings. I’ve made some new friends and have learned tons from others. At the top of my blessings list are the “Eastside Radicals” -- a screenwriting critique group I joined last fall. It’s me and three talented, and dedicated writers who inspire and encourage each other twice a month. Finding a supportive writing group is a true gift. There are other writers in my life who have taught me so much including friends at the Northwest Screenwriters Guild, and my new writing partner, Heather Davis, who I’ll be writing a movie with next year.
Being able to share my stories with readers is at the top of my blessings list! Next Harlequin Intrigue will release The Girl Next Door series in February and March. These books were so much fun to write. They’re set out here in Seattle--my favorite city in the world!
I’d love to hear your special blessings of 2008. Care to share them?
Sorry this is coming to you so late in the day, but we had to say good-bye to our beloved Golden Retriever earlier today. He was a family pet for 12 glorious years, so even though we feel the pain of missing him, we were blessed with many years of joy.
Wishing you a wonderful, joyous holiday season.
