Superior Scribbler Award & Critique_This

Can you believe it? The incredibly talented Anne Riley thinks I'm a Superior Scribbler! I'm so excited--and honored--to receive my second blog award. And look how cute the badge is, by the way.
The rules for this award are very simple; all I have to do pass it on. It should be easy--except for the part where I have to narrow down my list of favorite blogs, but, I'll give it a go.
 I also joined a small Critique Group, which we named Critique_This.  Right now, we have 5 members.  We'll have to see how it goes, but so far, I love it. My group is so supportive and laid back (just like I like). Well, I'll blog more Sunday, but as for today, I'm exhausted. I just really wanted to post the Award that Anne gave me like, oh...about FOREVER ago! Sorry it took so long getting it up.

My MS has be suffering because of the family drama that will not seem to take the hint and die already!
Actually, it isn't that my MS is suffering; the MS has just been neglected. But my MCs...well they are
definitely suffering--which my Critique Partner seems to think is barbaric (though she won't come out and say it to my face).

You see, she's quite peeved-off that she's been stuck at a cliff hanger for about a week...which means Kate and Caleb are also stuck at a cliff hanger, right at the edge of danger---the same edge of danger that they've been stuck at since this family drama, that-is-my-18-year-old-brother's-fault, started, well over two weeks ago.

Still, I'm a mean, mean writer/mommy to my characters and they don't deserve that.

Happy writing everyone!


  1. Congrats! And your characters might not deserve the suffering, but they sure need it for your book to be interesting... :)

  2. Courtney - thank you so, so much for this award! You've made my day :) I've started reading your blog and really enjoy it as well. Looking forward to reading more!

  3. It's amazing how much fun we can have torturing our poor characters. Probably because we know it will turn out all right :)

    Congrats on the award :)

  4. Family drama sucks. Hope everything works out okay. Don't worry - your characters won't leave you, even if you neglect them. Good luck!

  5. Congrats on your award! Sorry about the drama...hopefully it will die down before the holiday hits. :)

  6. That is a cute award! Good to hear you're in a critique group...they are so helpful.

  7. Congrats on the award! And sorry to hear about the family drama... Hope it's died down by now! (I'm way late getting to this post...)

  8. Congratulations on your award. And looking forward to checking out the winners.

  9. Congrats on your award and on your critique group - both are great news! :)

  10. Thanks for the award. That was so sweet of you. Sorry, I'm a little late to notice. I'm not on Twitter all that often.
