My First Awards

I was totally intending to post about my experience last week at the 1st Pages Event with Uber-Agents Kristin Nelson and Kate Schafer-Testerman. I promise to do that -- next week. I'm slammed with judging manuscripts for a writing conference and MUST finish by Friday! However, I do have some positive news to share.

1) We've hit over 100 followers!!!! I'd like to thank all the wonderful
readers, writers, etc. out there who are brave enough to admit
following our little blog. You're all made of awesome!

2) My very first award, The Silver Lining Award, has been bestowed upon
me by the lovely Shelli from Market
My Words
. If you haven't checked out her blog yet, it's a must read
for great marketing info/interviews.

I love this award as it was created to acknowledge those who create positive and optimistic posts. Plus, it's pretty (see side bar.) I need to award this to 5 fellow bloggers out there and will put up an extra post this weekend.

3) Two more awards were given to me over the weekend by Valerie Kemp:
The Happy Award and The Honest Scrap award. 3 awards in
one weekend! How lucky is that? I should go buy a lotto ticket. These
rewards require answering actual questions and giving it away to 10
deserving bloggers. As I don't have time to do laundry this week, let
alone answer questions, I'll get to this on my other blog over the weekend.

There you have my happy writing news of the week! Also, I made progress concerning the eternal revision process of my YA ms, which doesn't feel like happy news in the moment, but feels great after. So what happy writing news have you had this week?


  1. My super happy writing news is still kinda secret. Until I have the go-ahead, I'm keeping that on the DL, but you know what it is!

    I'm swamped too, Kristi. Between the crit, the work I'm doing for the magazine, my own revisions, home stuff etc. Oy!

    And SIS was also awarded some stuff. We will EACH give our answers. And since all three of us have answered them previously on our personal blogs, no biggie. I'll post that on Thursday or Friday.

  2. Hey, I didn't know that! Will you email me?

  3. Also, I'm so excited for your happy news!

  4. Ta-dah! Let them keep on coming!
