I SURVIVED and I'm THANKFUL...


First off, I've done something amazing.

I survived a BRUTAL interview from Tammy Theriault. I even got a cool badge for it --------------->

If Tammy asks you do to an interview, BEWARE! I barely made it out alive. But I wanted to take Tammy up on her challenge because I'd heard she gave a mean interview and I wanted to prove I was up for the challenge! If you want to check it out, click here.

I’m thankful for people who really take the time to help…

There are certain people who care more about giving than their own personal gain…

And I know that everything I’ve learned about writing and this business has come from someone who took the time to STOP, care, and lend an offering hand. (Not just try to sell me their book *snicker*) These are the people I want to surround myself with and these are the people I’m thankful for…

I love it when we can lift each other up, support each other, and not view each other as competition. It’s about creating magic… creating something that can transport the reader and immerse them in something that can uplift, inspire, or ease the burden of real life. And that can’t happen without people who take the time to STOP, care, and lend an offering hand.

Great blogfest, Tara and Vikki! Thanks so much for this… 



And last, if you haven't checked out the mysterious blogfest yet, you can do so here. November 19 can't come soon enough! 

What are you thankful for this week? 

Red. Head. Out.

  1. Amen, Morgan!
    To me, it's more what I can do for others. I've already achieved (and surpassed) my dreams - I want to see others achieve theirs. And I reached that point with the help of so many awesome people.

  10. Awesome interview, and from now on, a new rule: no more teasing about the fest! Just tell me about it, only me :) And secretly too :D

  16. I hope that I can reach out to others and help them with their writer's journey. That's my goal! I'm so thankful for all my followers. Without them, Ink in the Book would be useless!

  17. Oh my gosh, Morgan. That interview was hilarious! :) I just hope you're practicing that knife-throwing stunt...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just got back from laughing at "The Morg" and left, of course, a serious, well-thought out comment:)

    PS... I didn't know what a madlib was, either (I thought it was a politician suffering from a nervous breakdown :)

    PPS... so agree with your thanks post. As Joe Mauer would say, "Well played, The Morg, well played."

    :)

  30. Good stuff. I'm also thankful for the those bloggers who aren't always trying to sell me stuff all the time. Now and then, some good promotion is just fine and dandy. But my Twitter feed reads like an infomercial.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree with you, Morgan. I love it when people do things to help others out of the goodness of their heart. It means more than when they do it for their own selfish needs.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've learned so much from people who are further on the path than me and were still willing to reach back and lend a hand. That's the kind of person I want to be. When I figure out what I'm doing of course.

    ReplyDelete
  33. We have an awesome writing community and lots to be thankful for! I'm surrounded by amazing writers\friends!

    And yes, I can't wait until November 19! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. The writing community is so cool. :)

    Heading over to your interview...

    Your interview was a riot!

    ReplyDelete
  37. A great thank you! We have a fantastic writing community here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've met some of the most amazing, caring people through blogging. It's truly a blessing.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's amazing how in most other professions it's about pushing everyone out of your way so YOU can reach the top. With (most) writers I have seen how much everyone wants the other to succeed. It's nice to find that with the way the world is today. Thanks for the reminder :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Great post! I agree it's not a competition. We're all headed in the same direction. We should support one another! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm intrigued about the Nov. 19th Blogfest. I can;t wait to see what it is!

    ReplyDelete
  42. The blogging community is truly AWESOME!
    And I echo your sentiments that we are not in a competition... we all have something different to offer... each person has a unique writing talent...

    ReplyDelete
  43. For the record...the good sibling took up for you on the harassing interview while the bad twin laughed along with Tammy. Just saying...come Christmas, remember who kept the virtual family allegiance.

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a great idea for a blog fest! I think the world needs more appreciation. Oh, and I loved the interview, too, but you're right - it was brutal! Hey, at least you got a fun button out of it. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. So much going on! And I miss your guts!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yes, it's all about the magic, and that was a great interview.
