A NaNoWriMo Pep Talk from Jim Butcher

[Tweet “A NaNoWrimo Pep Talk from Jim Butcher“]Jim Butcher, author of The Dresden Files, is my all-time favorite author.  Deborah Harkness is a very close second, as is Diana Gabaldon, but Jim’s books are ones that I could read and listen to for the rest of my life and never ever get tired of his characters.  One can always find something new to think about when thinking about Harry, Karen, Molly, Michael, and even Harry’s awesome dog Mouse.  So, when I found this “pep talk” from Jim on nanowrimo.org, I just had to post it here.  As usual, he made me laugh out loud.

The Thanksgiving Address That Works Any Day of the Year

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  I can already smell the turkey and taste the sweet potatoes!  In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I would like to share with you a prayer that the Haudenosaunee say every day, not just once a year.

I retrieved this prayer originally from here: The Roaming Naturalist.

The National Museum of the American Indian also has a PDF file about the Haudenosaunee that is very interesting.  I attached it to this post.  Click the link below to retrieve it.
