Happy Thanksgiving!

Jill here.

Go Teen Writers is taking a few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving. My family is driving over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house in Portland. We go there every year. We'll have Thanksgiving dinner with my husband's family, watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and go Black Friday shopping with old friends. I'll also try to get a little work done but will probably fail.

For fun, here's a picture of my husband and me the first year we were married. We went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in Manhattan thinking we'd get to be on TV. We didn't even get close enough to see the parade! But it was still a fun day, though very cold.

All of you 100 for 100 and NaNoWriMo participants, keep at it! You're almost there. Give it your all. Do your best. And enjoy the weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving! We'll see you back here on Monday!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Jill, I love that picture!

    I'm slowly getting feedback returned and hope to finish up by this evening. Thanks for your patience, everyone.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! Can't wait for Monday. ^-^

  3. Happy Thanksgiving!
    I got my contest feedback :D :D :D
    At first I was too excited to read the whole email and I just looked at the chart, figuring that was the feedback, and I was like "How can my dialogue be both natural and stiff/unnatural..? Where did I have a POV inconsistency...?" Then I read the email and realized that the numbers were not, in fact, representing the different judges and instead corresponded to those numbers on the chart. *facepalm* Moral of the comment: Always read emails in their entirety.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, all! Have a great week. :)

  5. Happy thanksgiving, everyone! Hope you guys have a great week. One thing I'm definitely giving thanks for this year if GTW. Seriously. I don't know what I would've done without you :).

    Oh, and I'm the same Jonathan who's been on this site for the two months or so, just logging in with my Google account :D.

  6. What an awesome picture of you two!
    Happy Thanksgiving! (I'm in Canada, but I wish everyone else a great holiday this week.)

  7. Thank you for sending the feedback! I was very excited to read it!

    Happy Thanksgiving! Take some time to thank God for our imaginations. ;)
