Some thanks are in order...

Recently I was the recipient of the coveted "One Lovely Blog Award", given to me by my friend and critique partner, Abby Annis.

I'm still pretty new to the blogosphere, so I am thrilled to be getting an award, but it may take me some time to pass it along. There are a lot of blogs that I read every day, but I don't comment enough to be feel comfortable awarding someone out of the blue. Maybe this will help me to be more vocal.

More importantly, the day Abby gave me this award, I was hot, tired, cranky, and had just been in a software seminar for the past two days. She made me feel like I was someone instead of a faceless page of posts in an endless sea of blogs. It let me know that there was someone out there who cared about what I had to say. So, thanks, Abby! May the followers of your blog be fruitful and multiply.

Rebecca Knight, another of my fantasy crit-ers, just gave me the "Superior Scribbler Award". Its ancient lineage can be traced back to the one true Scribbler, Scholastic Scribe.

It may take me some time to dole this baby out to deserving scribblers, but in the meantime, I wanted to thank Becca K. for giving me the award at a much needed moment in my life (I swear, she and Abby must be psychic, or else I am just melodramatic and constantly needing e-hugs).

I'd just received an official rejection from a great agent on a revised full, and was lamenting that I couldn't even write a sentence, much less a novel, and needed this timely ego boost. So thanks again, Becca! May the characters in your novels live long, happy lives. Except for the ones you decide to kill off. ;)

Yes, Abby and I ARE psychic O_o.

Okay, maybe not, but we do both love your blog :D! Thanks for the love, Tere! I'm glad we could help. E-hugs all around! I hope your week gets better, my friend.

Abby said...

Thanks, Tere! This whole process would be so much harder without the support of friends, and you've been a huge help and support to me. Glad we could make you feel loved. :D

And I don't know what Becca's been telling you, but I am totally psychic. Comes from years working as a receptionist/admin. assistant. Well, I was expected to read minds, anyway. :)

Bummer on the big R. :,( Hope you're feeling better soon!

Congrats on your awards. :D Sorry about the rejection.

Congratulations! You have a very lovely blog. :-)

Rejections are depressing. But at least the agent was reading your full. Don't get too discouraged.

Eric said...

Sorry to hear about the rejections, but the fact that you have a full ready and are putting it out there is great. You're way ahead of me in that department. You're very deserving of the awards, so congrats and keep up the hard work. It will pay off in the end.

Thanks, y'all! It's nice to have support from a group of people who care and understand, even if we have never met.

Got to love the web for that.

Thanks, again!!
