My Blogging Writer Award from Elizabeth Spann Craig
Isn't this a great looking award? I received it on her Sunday post from blogger friend and mystery author Elizabeth Spann Craig, author of Pretty Is as Pretty Dies (which I read and loved, partly because of the spunky elder protagonist, Myrtle Clover).
The fun thing about this award is that there are no rules. I don't have to admit to twenty past indiscretions, list the umpteen ways I procrastinate instead of writing, or pass the award on to as many blogging writers as Elizabeth did (50 blogging writers). As a matter of fact, I don't have to pass it on at all.
However, there was this one blogger that immediately popped into my mind. First, she's a member of my critique group, Raintree Writers. Second, she has just finished the first draft of her first novel (YA) and is now in the revision/tweaking stage in preparation for her first agent pitch in March. Third, she jumped into blogging with both feet a few months ago and is doing a fine job. Fourth, she recently did an outstanding guest post on character sketches for fiction writers for The Writing Bug, the blog of Northern Colorado Writers.
As a result, I'm passing the blogging writer award on to Carolyn Yalin and her blog of the same name. And I'm reserving the right to pass this award on to other blogging writers whenever I'm in the mood. Meantime, Carolyn, per Elizabeth's original post, there are no rules. You may attach this blogging award to your own blog if you wish
