Well, I survived NaBloWriMo - National Blog Writing Month. Those of us who participated by blogging every day can pat ourselves on the back. Yay! October turned out to be the month from Hades for me, but not because of NaBloWriMo. I fell, twisted my knee, sprained my ankle, went through two different sets of xrays - plus came down with the H1N1. I’m ready for November.
But! The good thing about October is that I received two awards. I’d dance around my desk, but … I can’t.
Stephanie Faris gave me an award. It doesn’t have a name, but it’s a beautiful mermaid brandishing a really wicked pitchfork, while little fish and a seahorse scamper by. Okay. I admit it. I see why Stephanie thought of me. (Not the beautiful mermaid part, but the scaring folks with the huge fork thing.) Seriously, though, thank you Stephanie. She put me in among a group of wonderful bloggers.
Karen McIntosh awarded me the One Lovely Blogger Award. I just hope I can live up to what she said about Straight From Hel: “…it's chock full of information on the publishing industry and writing, with book reviews and MORE. Helen's site is a fast way to stay up with changing industry trends…” Thank you Karen.
While Stephanie didn’t say the mermaid award had to be passed on, Karen did. So I hereby give the One Lovely Blogger Award to:
Tamika of The Write Worship
I’m just getting to know Tamika. She writes about her writing journey in a truly unique and thoughtful way.
The rules for accepting the One Lovely Blogger Award are:
1) Accept the award and don't forget to post a link back to the awarding person.
2) Pass the award on.
3) Notify the award winners.
Zip over to The Write Worship and tell Tamika hi and read some of her posts!
