An award

Sherrie Peterson and I attended the Pikes Peak Writers Conference in April as prize-winners of the Pikes Peaks Writers Fiction Contest. I discovered that not only is she a fellow fan of Rick Riordan and Suzanne Collins, but that she used to sing in a rock band (as I did as well, except mine was strictly amateur while her band had caught the attention of a record label) and that she could name any restaurant in the Southwest. This is an example of our conversations:

me: You know that excellent Southwestern restaurant?
her: Uh, which one?
me: The one in Santa Barbara called Left something.
her: Oh you mean Something Left Something (I forgot the name again. Sherrie?)
me: Yes! That's the one!

Well, anyway, she gave me this award yesterday and only now am I getting to it:

Thanks, Sherrie!

So, here are the rules of this award:
  1. Each Superior Scribbler must, in turn, pass the Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy buds.
  2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  3. Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this post, which explains The Award.
  4. Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List at the Scholastic-Scribe's blog. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives this prestigious honor!
  5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
Now. my turn: I wish to award the Superior Scribbler Award to these generous and creative people who educate, engage, and keep me on the computer much too long with their posts:
  1. Kelly Fineman at Writing and Ruminating
  2. Tanita Davis and a. fortis at Finding Wonderland
  3. Kelly Herold at Crossover
  4. The guy who killed his muse
  5. Lady Glamis, Davin Malasarn, and Scott G. F. Bailey at The Literary Lab

Thank you Yat-Yee, you are too generous. And as for my muse, may have just winged her. But if you see her around let me know. We've got some work to do.

Thanks for the award! It has honestly been a pleasure getting to know you a bit through your comments. I hope we can chat more on our blogs. :)
