By Liz, grateful to see (most of) her deck in Connecticut
It’s release week for The Icing on the Corpse, as many of you know (so much fun, and so grateful to all of you for helping me celebrate!). My life has been a little insane lately, but I made sure this week to take a few minutes in all the insanity to enjoy the moment.
Despite the two deadlines looming over my head, the ever-present and equally insane day job, and a ongoing family situation, I chose to stop and think about what I’ve accomplished – not only with this release, but overall.
We talk a lot here about living our dream and enjoying these moments despite the craziness of everything else. Sometimes I’m better at that than others. But lately I’ve been making even more of an effort to stop, be present and, most importantly, be grateful.
I’ve had amazing support launching this book from so many places – my fellow Wickeds, here at home, and from many of the writerly friends I’ve made along the way. It’s been great fun reading the initial reviews, interacting with people who enjoyed an early copy of the book and continuing to build on the momentum Stan and friends have gained.
But most importantly, just being part of this community – from my Wicked circle to all the writers I meet at yearly conferences to the readers who make this all possible – is the best part yet.
I’m grateful to all of you. Thanks for reading.
Readers, what are you taking a moment to be grateful for today?
