Ten Small Things I'm Grateful for as a Writer

Hey friends!

Sometimes it’s the little things we don’t notice that make all the difference. It’s not often we realize how comforting that crack in our favorite coffee mug is, or how our little table lamp consistently illuminates our late night writing endeavors.

Here’s an ode to all the little things that bless my journey as a writer.

1. Spotify.

It has yet to judge me for playing the same song over and over (and over) again.

2. The Internet

It likes to give out on occasion, just to remind me life exists outside the interwebs.

3. The Floor

It’s a faithful desk, pacing ground, and flat surface to bang my head against when I realize writing is hard, and I should have chosen another career.

4. The Sun

It continues to shine on me every time I venture away from my writing into the light, though it’s probably mad I don’t give it more attention.

5. My Trusty Laptop

Who I have yet to name but likely use more than my bed.

6. My Cat

She desecrates that laptop by walking across it when I’m trying to write.

7. The Blue Light Filter

It dims my laptop at nine each night, sending me into a panic because I only have a few hours until bedtime and have so much left to do.

8. My Sword

It’s always there to help me through a rough brainstorming session.

9. My Notepad

It dutifully contains all my goals, still clinging to the hope that I will someday reach them all despite my repeated failures.

And finally…

10. The “Forgot Your Password?” Links  

Without which I would be locked out of nearly all my online accounts more than once.

For these ten small things, I am grateful.

What ten things are you grateful for as a writer?

Have a writing-filled week!

  1. Lol, the Spotify resounded with me personally. And the sword one.
    And the floor one.
    And the… man, a lot of these resounded with me, come to think of it.

  2. hmm…
    1. for my best friend Lucia, who keeps bugging me about the “next scene” when I feel like doing anything but writing. She also gives me inspiration and edits anything!
    2. for my chair in my bedroom which I spend hours in.
    3. Great books to read and reward me with after writing.
    4. My laptop that has lasted me years.
    5. My family!
    6. notebooks.
    And most of all, my Lord and Savior who without nothing would be possible.
    In Christ Alone,

  3. Haha, I loved that. Resonated with pretty much all of them. Especially the cat and laptop one, because of course, I was reading this on my laptop, and of course the kitten had to emphasize that point by choosing that very opportune time to begin leisurely walking across the keys. ;D
