What a nice surprise I had this morning. Helen Ginger, a writer who blogs and is editor of a writers' newsletter, gave me the Sunshine Award. In the blogging world, this is an award a blogger gives to Followers of their choice. I've been a Follower of Helen's blog http://straightfromhel.blogspot.com/ I like her good advice for writers, her easy conversational writing style, and the friendly approach to a serious subject.
Quite some time ago,, Helen published an article I'd written titled "Why Join An Online Critique Group?" in her Doing It Write newsletter. Helen is an editor, book consultant, writer and public speaker
I'd like to follow her example and pass the Sunshine Award on to a few of my own Followers. And speaking of sunshine--a follow-up on last Friday's post. We packed at Karen's house for 3 days and kept watching the skies for signs of dreaded rain. It seems they did have the pit for the septic tank at the new house dug, but it is filled with water from the drenchings of the past couple weeks. Today they are going to pump water out and see what's what. Can they put the tank in or not? The scary thing is that there is possible rain in the forecast for tomorrow and Wednesday. But only a possiblity. I'd like to spread the sunshine all over the Kansas City area for at least a full week.
But on to those I've selected for the Sunshine Award:
1. Michelle Meyers http://wallflowersart.blogspot.com/ Michelle is a fine artist and a sometimes writer. Right now she's concentrating on her painting and a business called Wallflowers Art. But once a writer, always a writer, so I know she'll continue her interest.
2. Virginia Allain: http://vallain.wordpress.com/ Virgiina is a writer, photographer, and book designer She has featured Wrter Granny's World at her Squidoo page on a regular basis
3. Gail Martin: Gail is the editor at http://www.ourecho.com/ a website where anyone can post their writing. She has also written a book about her Kansas childhood years
4. Molly Samuels: Molly is a writer who also quilts. But sometimes she's a quilter who also writes. She spreads a lot of sunshine herself with her sunny personality
