As part of the award, I'm supposed to name ten things that make me happy. I answered: my husband, my kids, writing, coffee (of course!), warm spring weather, naps, a good book, chocolates, blogging buddies, and a day where I don't have to go anywhere and can stay in my jammies all day. After yesterday, I've got a few additions:
#11 - winning awards and contests;
#12 - being awarded a fifteen minute Skype conversation with agent Mark McVeigh - please visit Mark's new blog and become a follower - he'll be doing more phonecall/Skype giveaways in the future, so stay posted;
#13 - being awarded a query critique with Jennifer Laughran at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency by winning Shelli's Fabulous Follower prize at Market My Words. Please visit Shelli's wonderful blog - you'll be glad you did;
#14 - winning 2 books by bestselling author Aimee Friedman, French Kiss and a signed hardback of Sea Change. I can't wait for these to come in the mail!
I've said it over and over, but I'll say it again - thanks Sharon! Thanks Mark! Thanks Shelli!
Okay, I'm done gushing over my amazing blogging week, now I'd like to hear from you. Did anything fantabulistic happen to you last week? (Okay - I stole that word from one of my very best college friends whom I lost track of but recently found again on Facebook. Another great thing that's happened lately. And Judy, I miss your rather inventive vocabulary!)
Until Thursday, happy writing, and may your coffee pot never run dry.
