Well, there are a lot of little things that I wanted to get down somewhere, so we'll see if we can make it all come together.

First of all, if you haven't heard about Sarah Wylie's contest, you should check it out. She's getting published and has pulled out the awesomeness to celebrate. We're talking about the possibility of a lunch date with the Query Shark, Janet Reid. Or a manuscript or query critique by several different agents. That's amazing.

Second of all, I got a couple of blog awards and wanted to share the love. So, here goes.

This first one was claimed from Kristin Rae at Kristin Creative. She's an amazingly talented writer with a lot of insight, so if you don't follow her, check her out.

I don't know if there are any special rules attached to this, so I'm just going to pass it on to Talli Rolland. She posts great things that make me smile.

Also, Katie at ...&&PROPHETIC PICTURES. I love reading her posts. She's talking about a non-fiction book right now that just had me in stitches from laughing.

I was also awarded the Silver Lining Award by Shannon O'Dell at Book Dreaming. If she hadn't given me this award, I would certainly pass it on to her because she always makes things seem better.

I would like to pass this award on to Nisa at Wordplay, Swordplay. She's awesome! And you have to check out her Inspiration Week posts.

Also, Krista at Mother. Write. (Repeat.) She is right in the middle of the query trenches and yet, she is so positive. You need to check out her interviews with an agent. She does one a week and they are super helpful!

And the last item of the day, if April Showers bring May Flowers, what do April Snows bring? I mean, really. It snowed again. There's several inches on my yard right now. I'm really ready for spring to get here!
