Humane Writing

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, or a Happy Hanukkah, or a nice other holiday. Mine was wonderful. We have family in town, so my blogging will be sporadic for the next week or so.

I still have several awards to give out, so I'm going to do two today.

The first is the Humane Award which I received from a lovely friend and YA writer, Dawn Simon. I'm not sure why I deserve this award since I don't feel like I do much for humanity (or dogs). But we did get my dog from a rescue organization, and I clean up after him when he pees on the floor, so I guess that's pretty humane.

I'm going to pass it on to 5 blogs that I think make the world a little brighter place. They are:

Eileen Astels at A Christian Romance Writer's Journey
Roxane Salonen at Peace Garden Mama
Teressa at The Chocolate Chip Waffle
Shannon O'Donnell at Book Dreaming

The other award for today is the Superior Scribbler Award. I got this award from Thomas (author/illustrator extraordinare) and Kelly (YA sci-fi/fantasy/romance writer). I'm passing it along to 5 blogs that I always enjoy reading. They are:

Jemi Fraser at Just Jemi
Paul Greci at Northwriter
Stephenie at Hapshepsut: The Writing of a Novel
Tricia at Talespinning

Thanks to all of you for your excellent blogs and comments!

You are most humane and funny! Congratulations on your bonanza of awards, which you deserve, and thank you so much for sharing the Superior Scribbler with me (I confess I've been given it before but I thank you heartily nonetheless. It is a good feeling to be appreciated by fellow writers).

Thanks Natalie - you're such a sweetie! I hope you have a great time with your company. It's been busy here too - blogging has taken a back seat in my world too! And that's a good thing - family first is my motto :)
