Today for Thankful Thursday, I'm going to refer you to a beautiful essay by Francisco X. Stork, author of MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD and THE LAST SUMMER OF THE DEATH WARRIORS. He talks about the gift that is writing, and I love what he has to say about it.
Francisco is a guest on Matthew Quick's and Alicia Bessette's Quest for Kindness blog. There are many wonderful entries, if you ever need a pick-me-up, it's a great blog to read.
I wanted to quote a sentence or two from Francisco's essay, to whet your appetite, but there is so much wonderful goodness there, you just need to hop over and read it.
I promise, you'll be glad you did. Click on the link below:
