Hi everyone,

I have so many reasons to be thankful that I hardly know where to start. My lovely M.O.W. Sandy for sure! And Robin and son-in-law Tim and grandsons Kris and Tyler and son Jeff and daughter-in-law Jennifer . And my sister Jule and nephew Jon and niece-in-law Sarah and their love of a daughter Alexis.

And my friends and colleagues. Whoever you are, wherever you live, I wish you a day of love, thankfulness, and peace. As for me, I know that I’m one lucky guy!

Or dude as Cheryl Harness might put it. Couple of days ago Cheryl and I were batting notes back and forth, talking about how writers dream big, shoot for perfection, often fail, skin our knees, and start again. When she shared her 16-step approach to the creative process, I begged her permission to quote her. Gracious lady that she is, she agreed. Cheryl HarnessThe list speaks for itself.
