Thank You Thursday – Writing Your Acknowledgements Page

As I finalize my first book which I’m hoping will be released on March 31, I’m finalizing the acknowledgements portion of the book.  For any author, this is place where we write a thank you note to those who have made a book project possible.  There are many people I’ll be thanking (you’ll have to pick up a copy of the book though to read the list).

The exercise of writing acknowledgments is a great way to appreciate others.  I’m learning it’s a little harder than one might think to write this section of a book.  I want to make sure I thank the people who really made it happen, and I certainly don’t want to miss anyone.  If I really think about it, I could probably fill a book with thank you notes for people who have made a difference in my life.  (Maybe that’s an idea for another book in the future.)

Next week is the final week of the 90 Day Thank You Note Challenge.  Before we close out the challenge, I’d like to challenge you to write an acknowledgement section for your future book.  Use the time to express your gratitude for those who have changed your world for the better.  When you’re done, make a copy of your acknowledgements and send it out to those you appreciate.  I think you’ll make someone’s day.

Share a few sentences from your acknowledgements in the comments below.

Stay tuned for more details about the release of On Track – Life Lessons from the Track & Field.  I’ll be posting more information in the coming days.
