My buddy Kristen, writer of From There to Here and Back, just nominated me for a "nice" award:
This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded please pass it on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award.
I was especially tickled since I was coming off of a week (or maybe even ten days) when I hadn't been feeling particularly nice. It's good to be reminded that niceness is a quality to celebrate. So, I get to now nominate seven other bloggers who are richly deserving of this award . . .
Bev Marshall, St. Tammany Writers Group
Larramie, Seize a Daisy
The Fun Women at The Good Girls Kill for Money Club
Melanie Lynne Hauser, Refrigerator Door
Therese Fowler, Making it Up
The wonderful women at The Writers' Group
Mary Evelyn Lewis, The Virtual Wordsmith
(I would have also nominated Lisa at Eudaemonia, but Kristen beat me to it!)
So, there you go. I'll close by quoting some advice my grandmother gave at her 100th birthday celebration: "Be nice. It makes a difference."
P.S. I just read a nice review of my novel; you can read it here
