30 Days of Thankful

I got up early this morning because I have decided to do a writing challenge.  The writing challenge is to write 50,000 words in the month of November.  Most people are using the month to write a novel.  I am not that ambitious.  I want to do the challenge just to get in the habit of taking the time to write every day.  I am shooting for 2500 words a day.

But before I could start, I had to procrastinate a bit and check out my email and Facebook.  Facebook is probably the world's most used procrastination tool.  I am pretty sure it is THE writer's procrastination tool.

One of my fellow writers has a different challenge for November.  She wants people to join her and write a "Thankfulness" blog post a day.  While I shouldn't take this on too, I am going to try.

I was thinking about it when I took my daughter to the train this morning.  When I got home and got out of the car, this is the view I saw.  How can you not be thankful when you have a scene like that in front of you?

So, today I am thankful for life and all it's beauty.

Thanks for reading!
