We know that the surest way to get good things in life is to be thankful for what you already have. So why not host a group thankful-fest once a week in which we send out good energy and hope to get some back in return? (And even if you don't believe in all that karma stuff, taking a minute to appreciate what you've got will make you feel better. Honest.)
By participating, you can also connect with fellow Oasis Seekers. We know most of you are each on your journey to publication and there's every reason to be a team and support each other. When you participate in the Thankful for Thursday meme, hopefully other Oasis Seekers will seek you out and you can do the same. See someone who's thankful for the same things you are? Follow them! You never know what friendship may come of it.
So without further ado, here are the rules to participate:
1. Do your own blog post on what you're thankful for today. It doesn't have to be book or publishing related (but it can be!)
2. Be sure to grab our badge and include it in your post.
3. Post a link to your blog in the comments here so that others can find you.
4. Go forth and share your gratitude! (And when friending new blogs, be sure to let them know you found them because of their participation in the meme.)
Here on the Oasis, I wanted to look at thankfulness in macro and micro terms. Sometimes we celebrate the BIG things -- events on a MACRO level -- like having 300+ Oasis Seekers here and giving away a critique by all five of us. (You can still enter here.)
But what about the MICRO -- are there any teeny-tiny things that just make your life better every darn day? For me, it's vanilla.
Yep - I'm thankful that someone figured out that a long, ugly brown bean could yield such perfect nectar. What little (or big!) things are you celebrating this week?
