I Won an Award

Okay, I first want to thank everybody that left me feedback over at Authoress's blog for the contest. Boy was that an eye-opener, but in a definitely great way! I learned that cliches are BAD (among other things)! I know that most people who write KNOW that, and yet I didn't...GO FIGURE!

I didn't win the contest, but I can say that I was VERY impressed with Anne Spollen (#21). SHE WAS GREAT! She did win, and I think it was well deserved. She is also a mom, wife AND writer. http://annespollen.blogspot.com/ Congrats Anne! You are so talented, and YES, I did predict you would win.

Now on to my award. Christy over at http://www.heavyonthecaffeine.com/ gave me an award!

Now, anyone that visits Christy's blog will notice a SLIGHT difference in size of this award...OKAY! I admit it, I made the darn thing HUGE (feel free to save this one instead Christy)!

Here is the quote from Christy's site:
Terri at Terri Rainer Published Author; she inspires me to follow my dreams because she's living it--even though she's a wife and a mom.

Awwww, isn't that sweet? It makes me feel the need to step up a bit to live up to that one...gee, thanks Christy!

I suppose I should bestow this award also, but there is a bit of selfishness in me, so I am going to think on it for a bit before I do that!

:) Terri

Yes, Terri, you do have a great blog here. Award well deserved!

PS - I heard that Anne Spollen has a dusty house, a lot of laundry piling up, and all three of her kids are WAY behind on their summer reading...

; )

Christy said...

You must be technologically savvy...me? Not so much! I can't even figure out how to get it on my sidebar (I know there's some tutorial for that, but I'll have to wait til I have more time to figure it out!)

Anyway, you deserve it--I think you're terrific, so just keep on doing what you're doing! :)

So now you're awesome AND brilliant! Nice! Congratulations! You deserve it :)

The best thing about being the first commenter, which I rarely am anywhere, is that I can say something like, in this case, "Congratulations, it's a well-deserved award!" and not sound quite so unoriginal.

So I'm pretty much SOL here. Nice work, though.
