What has writing given you that you’re grateful for?

It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S., so many of us are thinking about gratitude.

It occurred to me that since here at Called to Write we focus on writing, it might be worth thinking about what we are grateful for that writing has brought to our lives.

So here’s a place to share, if you feel so inspired.

Let us know in the comments … what has writing given you that you’re grateful for?

I’ll go first:

  • The satisfaction of pursuing one of my two most deeply held dreams, alongside my dream of becoming a mother.
  • The joy of playing in far off imaginary worlds that I’ve always loved but never believed I could be responsible for creating.
  • Incredible amounts of personal growth, self-discipline, self-confidence, self-trust, new habits, and new beliefs.
  • Exciting adventures in learning about writing fiction and screenwriting.
  • A tribe of incredible writers I’m grateful to call friends and colleagues.

It’s your turn. :)
