Awesomeness, Awards and Awareness

Elana has one of the most uplifting blogs I've ever had the privilege of reading. She doesn't just say we're all awesome, she really believes it and so do I, which is why I am passing along this logo to you. I wasn't going to at first because anyone who stops by here has surely stop by there, but you know what? It's so important to know that people really do care and are cheering you on so this shiny logo goes out to you from me as well. You are awesome!

Another person who makes me feel so great about myself is Angie over at Notes from the Writing Chair.. She was kind enough to give me a heartfelt award and since beginning my writing journey, I could list so many people who have helped me along the way and who I feel deserve this in turn. Elana and Angie are definitely on this list. Here's some others:

Mercedes at A Broken Laptop
Danyelle at Myth-takes.
Christine at The Musings of Christine Fonseca
Kate at The Lovers, the Dreamers and Me.
Suzette at Shooting Stars.
Lady Glamis at The Innocent Flower.
Mary Lindsey at Mary Lindsey's Webblog
Also, H. L. Dyer's Weblog

Thank you for taking the time to write such thoughtful blogs and share your knowledge with those of us who need all the help we can get! :D

On a final note, awareness is a funny thing. Some people like to remain ignorant, stagnant. They choose to watch life pass them by and call their lack of awareness a bliss. They believe they are happier uninformed. I am not one of those people. As I've begun my critiquing journey, I have learned to recognize so much that I hadn't noticed before. The thing about teaching is that the one doing it often learns more than the students. This is the case for me. I can't wait to attack my novel with this wealth of information I've gleaned from reading and critiquing. It just might become a love of mine. Okay, maybe that's stretching, but I am liking it.


  1. Thanks, Nisa. :) I love coming to your blog because it always lifts me up. :D I hear you on critting. I've learned more about writing from critting than I have from anywhere else. :)

  2. It sounds like you recently went through a round of beta. Good luck with your revisions -- I'm in the same rowboat.

  3. Thank you so much! I always enjoy your comments and posts so much even though I may be absent a lot of the time.

    About critting = embrace it, even the pain. Sounds like you are!

  4. Ray, I just hope I'm not up a creek without a paddle. Haha! Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    I don't write a lot of posts so you're not missing much! lol!

    Thanks for stopping by y'all! It's always fun to hear from you. :)

  5. Thanks Nisa! I'm so slow, but here I am! You really are awesome!

  6. Y'all aren't slow! I just didn't have my trumpet out announcing it! Life stole it and hid it away and I just don't have time to find it. ;)

    Yes, Ray. I'm in revision and having so much fun, but I'm breaking for Nano!

  7. See how out of it I am? I just commented to Ray twice because I didn't think I already had and I didn't bother checking. Must. Get. Sleep!
