November 1 is National Author’s Day.

Happy Author’s Day.

Authors have the best jobs ever. We love what we do. We blend our joy and pain with random made up stuff. We twist and swirl it around in our brains then put our hands on the keyboard and the joy, pain, and random stuff flows from our finger tips forming words on the page.

We can work anyplace. Home. The car waiting to pick up the kiddos. A plane. The airport. Tucked away in a mountain cottage or lounging on a beach chair. 

No matter which of the many backgrounds and professions we come from, in our hearts we are foremost authors.  Story tellers extraordinaire.

Thank you so very much to all the authors who create books to make me laugh, cry and sigh deeply when the characters fall in love and live happily ever after.

                        Looking forward to your next book.

    Awww. What a great message. Thanks, Rita. And thanks to all who write. It’s such a powerful, magical thing to be swept away into another world between the pages.

    Happy Author’s Day to you, too, Rita! My FAQ page asks what I like about being a writer. One of my answers is working in my jammies! This is a special day for you for another reason–the RITA contest opens for entries!

  4. Happy Day, Authors! And thanks Rita for the lovely message. We are lucky, and now I’m motivated to sit and write a little longer.

  5. Ahhh You made me smile. Thanks for the message, and thank you to all the authors who swept me from life away this year.
