Awards Galore: Creative Blog, Versatile Blogger, & I Survived the A to Z Challenge!

The A to Z Challenge provided much entertainment in April, and although it's over, I do miss having the easy prompt of the next letter for which to craft a post.  Shall, we start it again, but in reverse?  Ahem, perhaps not...  During the challenge, five fabulous awards flew my way, which put a great big smile on my face!

Thank you, Dierda!
Thank you to Kieran,
Magpie and Melissa B!!
Thank you, Elizabeth

Now, the serious part... for there are strings attached to 'The Versatile Blogger Award'.  I must reveal seven interesting facts about myself.... hmmm, well if you insist!  Actually, if you are curious, you can pop down this rabbit hole here   And, the best part of receiving? It's that warm fuzzy feeling you get, when sending the award on it's merry way to more lovely souls, not that I'm assuming my dark and troubled soul is lovely...  I would like to pass the award to these fifteen champions of the blogging universe, whom I recently met via the A to Z Challenge:

Words Crafter  @ The Rainy Day Wanderer 
Sarah Allen @ From Sarah, With Joy
Trevor Peck @ Love in the truth
Heather M. Gardner @ The waiting is the hardest part
Mooderino @ Moody Writing
T.S. Henrik @ The Non Review 
Rebecca Bradley @ Life in Clarity
Angela Felsted @ My Poetry and Prose Place

A/N:  Ever have one of those days where you feel like you've fallen down a rabbit hole?  Please nod, so that I'm not the only one... Today has been a little crazy, topsy-turvey doesn't cover it.  Am still recovering from yesterdays editing marathon, I completed 50 pages, and pole vaulted through an entire novel last night.  Reading until the wee hours... and my eyes are no longer speaking to me.   How are your writing projects coming along?

  1. Congrats on the awards- and projects- well they are getting done one at a time. :) have a fairy great day1

  2. Congratulations on the awards! Well earned!!! Particularly the Creative Blog Award!!!

    My projects chug along. I don't write terribly fast so somedays I am like Oscar Wilde who said, "I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again." Here's to writing! *clink*

  3. Oh, thank you very much for thinking of me! And congratulations to you!!!

    I envy your tired eyes-I haven't been able to get into a book in a while. I have at least 7 started! As for writing/editing-it's come and go.

    Also, congrats for finishing the Challenge!

  4. I can't decide if I like the laughing zebra or the lovely faery (at least I imagine she's fae) better! Congrats on your awards. :)
