Dec 1st

The  blog seems so quiet today, like a room after all the party guests have left. I thought for a moment about just leaving it that way, but I realized I had too much to say.

First of all I want to thank every single writer who participated in the Thanksgiving Buffet of Writers. Like any good buffet, there was a wide range of offerings, from a wider range of personalities. Some of you made me laugh, some made me cry and others made me think of how much I truly have to be thankful for. All of you shared a little of yourself with us and that is priceless.

Thank you.

Next, I think we should do this again next year--with a large prize basket at the end for a random commenter (multiple comments, multiple entries) What do you think?

Especially with so many things in flux right now, I am so thankful for my family, my husband, and children, but also my extended family. This awesome group of writers, many of which I've never seen, but who have touched my life in countless ways.

And now, it's December. Are any of you ready for Christmas? ; )


  1. Shawna,

    Count me in for next year. And thanks for giving us the opportunity to take a moment and really look at our lives and all we have to be thankful for.

    Nope, not ready for December. LOL.

  2. Hi Dee,

    Me either! Nope, no way. ; ) I'm glad you're in for next year. It'll be fun, and it was my pleasure.

  3. Hi Shawna,

    Count me in for next year, too. I had a blast--thank you for letting me spoof to my heart's content! Very thankful for that.

    December, no way. Too much to do!


  4. I too am in for next year! Your gift basket sounds wonderful as well. Thank you for inviting us in to share.

    Christmas? Can't be Christmas yet. Nope. No way.

  5. Thank YOU, Shawna. It was a great month of reading, and I was honored to participate. It would be awesome to do it again next year. :)

  6. Oh yes, I had a great time, both writing my blog & reading everyone else's. I'll be here next year for SURE! Appreciated all your work putting the Buffet together, Shawna! I am NOT ready for Christmas!

  7. Love the basket idea, and I'd love to do it again next year! Fabulous idea.
