Uh oh... Morg is about to get all sentimental... don't worry, it won't last too long *winks* (which is good, because apparently I've taken to talking in third person)
I've loved what's been going on in the blogging community this last month. Lots of awards, shout outs, support all around. It's so refreshing and nice to be among such great people.
Being a new blogger myself, I was nervous about this whole bloggy thing. But it's only opened my eyes up to another side of the writer community that ROCKS.
This past month, I've received awards from some awesome blogger friends and I wanted to reciprocate. I've loved the Skunk awards, Versatile blogger awards, Love awards... So I wanted to do was give out: *clears throat* "The Most Fascinating People I've Recently met" Awards. <---LOL! How's that for a stretch?
And dim the lights:
Tiana Smith She writes books for tweens and blogs about reading and writing (but not arithmetic). I always look forward to what she has to say. Definitely a strong voice in this writing community.
Shawn Klomparens Shawn is the real deal. Yes, don't be fooled by his Hollywood good looks--he's a real, live breathing author. *titter* I wanted to give a special shout out to Shawn because his books are amazzzzing... (Mental note: Do a special post on his books alone) He's the author of Jessica Z. and Two Years, No Rain. Go check out his site. Seriously... Have you done it yet?
He's a husband, former journalist, current writer and stay-at-home dad to three boys under the age of five. And his blog is HILARIOUS. He turns real life situations into stories that have me "ROFL."
Courtney Pearson I met Courtney at a SCBWI conference this last fall. Her work is AWESOME and she's definitely someone all agents need to be on the look out for.
Cassie Mae How does one not include Cassie when doing awards? This girl is a blogging goddess. Her positivity and enthusiasm in the writer community is astounding. Don't you agree?
Jolene Perry Jolene just "gets" it. I look forward to every post she does and can't wait to sit down and read her book The Next Door Boys that everyone is raving about.
Awesome peeps, huh? Go check out their sites and support their work. Of course, there are a few others of you out there that I'm thinking of... So don't worry, I'll get you on the next round.
Okay, cheesy sentimental Morg is out :D
