Happy Thanksgiving!

With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, it’s important to stop and acknowledge how amazing it is that we’re all brought here together by the love of children’s books, creativity, and making something lasting that will inspire and teach others.

Meanwhile, I leave you with two of my favorite web comics. The first is about a common writing error and, if you haven’t seen it, you might want to check your pulse as you could very well be a ghost. I present, the Alot. (I often have to physically restrain myself from sending this link to people who make this mistake to me in email.)

The other perfectly encapsulates the existential malaise of social networking and building platform. You can find this “it’s funny because it’s true” bit of wisdom here. (Speaking of which, I just wrote about platform a few weeks ago.)

I wish you all the blessings of time spent together with family and friends this holiday season. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a turkey to brine…

  1. Thanks for the laughs this morning. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with plenty of turkey, pumpkin pie and fun,

  2. That is just too funny! I’ll never look at *Alot* in the same way again 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving and luck with the turkey. One day I’ll visit the US and experience pumpkin pie for myself – it’s something that just isn’t done down here in Oz (Alot’s hairy brother, you know 🙂 ).

  3. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Mary! Enjoyed your links and your on-the-money comments about platform. We look forward to seeing you in ATL in just a few months!
