In other news: I've been hoarding awards, so I'm going to make a start at passing them out (this will be part of my Wednesday schedule for a while - as long as the awards hold out). Today I'll pass out the Quillfeather Award, given to me by Karen G at Coming Down the Mountain. Thanks Karen! And I promise I didn't know this when I planned this post, but I just went over to get the link to Karen's blog and found out I won her contest! She's going to analyze the first three chapters and query for my manuscript. Wow, Karen! Super Duper Thanks with a Cherry on Top! (Sidenote: I won a The Mockingbirds bookmark at Kimberly Franklin's blog today, too! Thank you, Kimberly! I'm so psyched - today was my lucky day!)
I'm almost too excited to go on, but there's still an award to give away so I'd better finish up. I'd like to give this lovely award to Shelley Sly at Stories in the Ordinary. Shelley is hosting the "I Can't Say It" Blogfest, where you can post a scene about a character who has something to say but can't get the words out. Doesn't that sound like fun? Hop over to her blog and sign up (or just tell her "hi!")
I'm also giving this award to Julie Dao at Silver Lining. Julie has another blog dedicated to science writing, Jules on Science, with some really interesting science articles. You should definitely check it out!
That's it for me today. I get to go figure out which manuscript I'll use for the chapters Karen's going to analyze. Have a very happy Wednesday, everyone!
