Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted by Zack on November 22, 2012 in Announcements |

My parents are scrambling making mounds of food in the kitchen below, I chopped probably three pounds of vegetables, and I can currently smell a large fowl roasting in an oven. That all means one thing – today’s Thanksgiving!

So happy Turkey Day (or Tofurkey Day) to those of you celebrating. I hope you see your family, watch some football, and stuff your face with food (thats basically how my night’s going to be spent).

But on a little more serious note, take some time to really be thankful for what you have. Personally, I’m thankful for my great family (though they can get on my nerves sometimes), my house and possessions, and the opportunities I have been given, like the blog I write, or the stories I write that you guys read. Yes, I’m thankful that you guys read my work – after all, what’s a writer without a reader? Anyway, enjoy your holiday and extended weekend for some, and stay safe tomorrow – it gets messy out there.

    What about Turducken Day!? Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well, Zach. Yes, what is a writer without a reader? I hope we’ll offer each other those roles as the semester unfolds.

    The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.
