These awards are spurring me on in my attempt to write and design readable posts which inform, instruct and inspire!
This one was begun by the ladies at the Bookshelf Muse, Angela and Becca, who have just released a powerful tool for developing characters in your story. The best part is....they are giving away a sample PDF file of "The Emotion Thesaurus" for anyone who visits their site! Check it out, here.
This award serves to celebrate those who have supported writers in our craft via critiques, blog posts, reviews, challenges, or, just as important, words of encouragement.
That brings me to my winner of the RAOK award:
My good friend, DAISY of "Fresh as a Daisy Soaps"!!!
Although she is not a writer per se, she is gifted with editing skills, which she put to use a few months back on a story of mine. Her son is a gifted young writer, which is not surprising. But that is not the main reason for honoring her in this way.
During the A to Z Blogging Challenge in April, Daisy cheered me on with her uplifting comments on each of the 26 posts (give or take one or two), even though she is a busy homeschool Mom and crafter. What a blessing that was to me, Daisy...I thank the Lord for you!
So, not only can she grab the badge above, and place it on her blog, but, as a thank you, I will be hosting an occasional contest (if you have any ideas, let me know), and will award the winner with their choice of one of Daisy's scrumptiously scented bath products. She is a master at mixing just the right essence and color to mold many unique soaps. See her fragrant offerings here.
