I am thankful for a number of things, especially for a Monday. For one, I met with a colleague who has to work in another state for the same institution. It was wonderful and a surprise most pleasant.
Another thing to be thankful for, though, is that I made my first short story, one I intend to submit for the upcoming contest from the Public Library Association. Somehow, I managed to make a story within 8,000 characters or less (including spaces). I hope I can have some good sets of eyes and editing done before I submit the work in September.
