Thankful for Thursday: Websites

Join the Oasis thankful-fest once a week - send out good energy and get some back in return!

This meme was created to help our Oasis Seekers connect with one another. We know most of you are 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.

Here are the rules to participate each week:

1. Grab the Thankful prompt from below and write a post about it. 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.)

Topic this week: What writing/reading website are you most grateful for and why?

Goodness, this week's topic almost seems too easy! I'm thankful for THIS VERY WEBSITE/BLOG because I have my wonderful Oasis sisters for support, advice, crits and everything else requiring a shoulder to lean on.  Plus, I'm thankful for YOU -- OUR WONDERFUL OASIS SEEKERS -- you leave us comments, read our posts and just generally help to inspire our lives.

Of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't also mention the YALitChat site -- the place where we all met. If you write YA, you really should be a member.  There is so much support, feedback, and information available... not to mention access to agents and publishers. Truly, I can't say enough good things about it.  It's well worth your $30 investment (and it's free to students 18 and under).

So what about you?  What writing/reading websites do you most appreciate?

And to get you thinking ahead -- next week's topic will be: What teacher most encouraged you to grow as a reader or writer?   


  1. Well, aside from this lovely blog, I really appreciate YA Highway for their inside look at EVERYTHING YA. They have everything from interviews w/ authors and other publishing insiders, to helpful links around the web. :)

  2. I'm thankful for an incredible on line writers community. The generosity and genuine well wishing that extends from a multitude of blogs, and those behind them, is truly remarkable. You end up with the strong feeling, there are a great many in your corner, and you're standing in theirs too!
    So cheers to our community! xo

  3. It was tough, but I figured out another website to celebrate over on my personal blog.
    flap on by to tweet all about it...

  4. I second YA Highway but I think Janice Hardy's blog would have to be my top pick.
    - Sophia.


Breaths that matter...
