Wow, awards are so much fun--giving and getting both. I mean, they're not even tangible--just a photo--but they have such a positive effect.
Wednesdays, as you know, are the day of the week when I shine the spotlight on one of the blogs I follow. It's my opportunity to show appreciation to them for a job well done and let others know about them (if they don't already.)
Today, the Oscar goes to....... *trumpets sounding*
Sheri A. Larsen of Writer's Alley
Sheri's blog is fantastic! She always has groovy contests going on and throws an I Got U Blogfest to show blog love around the blogosphere. It's because of Sheri that I started this little weekly spotlight to begin with. I was so impressed with her blogfest, I thought, "Wow! We need to do more for each other because it feels great!"
As writers we tend to relish our time alone and sequester ourselves away whenever possible so we can toil away at spinning tales. We don't get a lot of appreciation and understanding from those around us (if we're not yet published) so having fellow bloggers to support us is invaluable.
I love Sher's positive energy and outlook on life. Just check out her blog and you'll see what I mean. She's also running a Halloween contest with smashing prizes, and there's still time to sign up! Which reminds me.... I need to get my story to her ASAP....
On that note, I bid you adieu. Happy hump day! The weekend is in sight. I can't wait to tell you about my special Book Club event on Saturday, so be sure to check back. Tomorrow, more on revisions.
