Casey, over at Literary Rambles was kind enough to give me the Silver Lining Award. Thanks so much Casey! I really appreciate the sentiment behind this award!
Well, what better day to hand out awards, than a day when I am gripped by a Migraine. Especially this award. The Silver Lining Award. The silver lining to my complete body spiral to hell today? That it will be another 30 days before I have the possibility of experiencing another one. Thirty blissful days during which I know that I am going to be migraine free. And, although my dark glasses aren't rose colored, they do give me new perspective. So, on to the awarding.
To Anna: For supporting anyone who happens to land at her blog, for very sweetly accepting my offer to meet over coffee (not really knowing me from Eve), and for just being a sweatheart in general. Thanks Anna!
To Jon: For spewing enthusiasm all over the blogosphere. Man, you have to get up early in the day to comment at any writerly blog before Jon. I'm pretty sure he'll be ruling the blog world sometime soon--and his enthusiasm reminds me of glitter--once you start shaking it around, it spreads EVERYWHERE! Insidious! We need more of this kind of enthusiasm to keep us afloat while facing revisions or rejections. Rock on, Jon!
To Tina: For just being awesome! For being a revision partner for me and providing the encouragement that I need to jumpstart the current round of revisions. Thanks Tina!
To Laura: For a fantastically optimistic and funny blog. Monday she confessed that she was turning into a crocodile. Great stuff--go check it out. And, for supporting me every time I hang out at her blog. Thanks Laura!
The "rules" state that you should pass on these awards to five other people, notify them, and post it on your blog. But, really, the awards are yours now, to do with as you wish!
And I am holding onto to my final award to give away at a later date. Not because I don't think that there are other bloggers that I could award it to--there are plenty others that I follow because of their positivity. But the somebody that I have in mind isn't available right now to accept it. So stay tuned.
The bottom line (as I see it) to these awards, is that I get to say that I am glad I don't have to do this writing thing alone. And these are just a few of the people who help me stay on the upswing of my writing. Thanks everyone! Now, I'm going to go sit in a dark room and lie perfectly still.
