STYLISH BLOG AWARD.... Thank you, Quinn!



Today is another cold day in Chicago, but it always warms me when I receive an award. I would like to thank Quinn from seeing, dreaming ... writing. If you're not familiar with Quinn you should be, he writes edgy posts that make you think. Visit him @ http://seeingdreamingwriting.blogspot.com/

As always these awards come with all kinds of fun rules, however I am at the final stages of  THE BLINDED GARDENER and I only have two weeks before ABNA so as you can well imagine I'm crazy/busy. I'm down to my last 5000 words, but  I might need a few thousand more.... I'll keep you posted,

You do know I find some time to blog and after the 24th, I'll catch up and send out awards and relay some fun facts about me. Until then, thank you all for the kind words, support, and especially your cheers.

A special thanks to The Words Crafter, Golden Eagle, and Roland for their daily cheers. I appreciate it so much. You're the best!

I would also like to welcome my new followers. I will try my hardest to keep you entertained and informed.

Have a wonderful day everyone.

Always your humble friend,

Michael

  2. You really deserve that award, especially with those classy, yet warm, Christmas photos. You can accomplish more than you think you can. You will acheive your goal. Hang in there. It's cold down here in the bayou state, too. Thanks for the mention here, Roland

  13. Congrats and thanks for the shout out! I break the rules ALL THE TIME. Ahem. Well? Isn't that what they're for? To challenge us?

    Anyway, I admire your determination. I'm still struggling with myself about DOING IT. So you're my hero right now. Good luck!

  16. I hear you on the ABNA stuff! Are you still WRITING? *hyperventilates* I am half done with my edit, but it is only my first edit. I am hoping to finish SOON, so I have time for a SECOND edit before smoothing the darned thing out. Definitely not diving in though, on the day it opens. YA didn't close last year, so I figure if I am in by the end of January I am okay.

    Congrats on the award and good luck getting your submission ready! (have you joined the FB ABNA prep group? You should)
