Ever since the seizures I suffered for about four months several years ago, writing has been a challenge. Words don’t come to mind as easily. Description is even harder than it used to be. It’s a strain, and I make a lot more typos than I used to. Sometimes, I worry I won’t really be able to write again.
However, this year, I’ve written some things I can be genuinely proud of. I’ve made a lot of progress. I’ve been trying to write this story off and on for about 5 years (mostly off). This year, I am thankful that I’ve broken through the wall of my story. I’ve had some major breakthroughs.
I am also thankful for the blessing of being able to attend a conference I couldn’t afford due to the generosity of several people. The conference came at a good time in my personal life as well, when I needed a little vacation (from my problems 🙂 ). I got to have some great interaction with other writers in a fun environment, and I learned good tips for inspiration.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year. Another thing is the fact that in a year or so, I will have mountains to look upon while I write. 😀
