Editor’s note: This month, we bring you brief reminders from pros around the world about what or who helped them forward in their careers.I am thankful for an understanding family who supports my need to be alone in a cabin in the woods to write in monastic solitude. And I am thankful for generous friends who loan me their cabins and understand why it means so much.
I am thankful for writer friends who pick up the phone or open their doors to listen and offer perspective and support. And I am thankful for non-writer friends who read and offer honest feedback.
I am thankful for the crackle and warmth of wood-burning stoves, for hot springs beside rivers, where steam turns to ice on bare branches, and for the sigh of wind in tall pines.
