Today is my day to post! And it's a holiday! So I want to wish those that celebrate a happy Thanksgiving, and those that don't much happiness, too. May the food be delicious, the relatives well-behaved, and the company excellent (even if the company is just your own thoughts or a good book).
But if it's not...if the day is unpleasant, un-fun, or even a train wreck of a disaster of a calamity, remember that conflict is a writer's friend. Smile. Take notes. Observe the emotion involved with the impartiality of a scientist. Then put it all in your next book.
