I've received a couple of awards and I'd like to pass them out today. The first one was from John Paul over at Where Sky Meets Ground. It is the Journey Support Award.
It's hard for me to single out specific people for awards because you've all been so fantastic with your comments and support. You help me continue writing, even when I feel like giving up some days, or at least give up sharing my work with others. Without each and every one of you who visit and communicate something back to me, I would feel as though I was making this journey alone.
The second award comes from Anne at Piedmont Writer. This one comes with the following rules:
1) You can only bestow this honor on one fellow writer at a time.
2) You can only pass it on to someone who has shown signs of recent struggle.
3) You do not have to have received it to pass it on.
4) When you pass it on, you must provide a word or two of encouragement to the receiver.
5) As awesome as this award is, you can't write a post with the intention or hope of getting this award. I mean, we struggle, yes, but we aren't needy.
6) When you receive this award, you have to state one positive thing about your writing ability. After all, the best kind of encouragement is the kind that comes from within ourselves.
My recipient is Roland D. Yeomans at Writing in the Crosshairs
For those of you who follow my blog, you may realize how important both these awards are to me just by the mere fact I'm using HTML LINK CODING ZOMG ME HATES IT.
To appease rule 4 (and because I want to say it): To Roland,
Chin up, chest out. The heart is just as worthy an organ to think with as the brain.
To appease rule 6: I'm not half bad at dialogue.
Now, regarding my 106 Followers Contest
I've not had as many entries as I would have liked, which is understandable considering the summer season and possibly short notice. I see on other blogs where more time is given than what I gave, so I thought I might extend it until July 4th. I greatly appreciate my new followers, and welcome aboard! It's great to have you here.
