Writing Award

I have been awarded A ROAR FOR POWERFUL WORDS by Nature Shows and Dreams.
Thanks Nancy so much for your kind words. Now I must let you know about the three things I feel make a powerful writer:

1) Toughness. The meek might inherit the earth but they would not survive this business. The ability to pick yourself up and dust yourself off is imperative.
2) A passion for understanding the human condition. Curiosity as to the motivation behind people's actions is crucial to creating believable characters with layers.
3) A need for solitude. Writing creativity grows inside solitude, whether in the shower, on the beach or in one's study. For some that means absolute silence. For others, music. For a few, television as background noise. But writing while someone is demanding your attention doesn't work.

Now I'll name my five recipients for this award. This award originates from The Shameless Lions Writing Circle.
My choices for passing this award on are:

1) Tawna Fenske: a determined, dedicated writer who has weathered serious ups and downs with dignity. A former Bombshell writer who suffered from their closure, she is now on a new adventure with her latest manuscript about a woman undertaker!!
2)Erica Orloff: Erica captured my imagination with her Bombshell novel, Urban Legend. She actually had me reading a Vampire story and they are just not my thing. This versatile writer creates stories from her heart. Go see her blog and meet an extraordinary woman.
3) Linda Brundage: A great writer who must continue on her path to publication. She has the skill, as seen by many agent requests, and the ability to follow through despite all else. You go girl and show them.
4) JJ Loch: I decided I had to give you a second award - for your loving nature, genuine pleasure in other's successes and wonderful, sensitive, pure writing. Love you, girl.
5) Raine Weaver: One of the most talented writers I have read in a long while. She is deep, quirky and intelligent. A special lady who deserves all the success in the world.

Loved doing this.

Thank you for the award, Suzanne! I do take as much pleasure in others' success as I do with my own. I haven't pubbed yet, as you know, but I am in there trying. And enjoying hearing of my dear friends' victories. Hope I follow soon.

It's because of you I have learned the craft to the point I have. The journey has been exciting and my goals are set. :D

I'll add that I won this award also from you in post about it.

Hugs, JJ

I wanted to add for writers how important it is to have critique partners if you want to grow at a faster rate in your writing career. Suzanne and I are there for each other through thick and thin.

Suzanne, you and I have worked well together, understanding each other from day one. I appreciate your support in more ways than I can say. You've given me hope that I can have my life back and that means the world to me.:D We are truly sisters with the love and respect we have for each other!

Hugs, JJ/Nancy

Bernita is SO nice, lol.

Thank you, dear Suzanne!! Having someone as gifted as you are think well of my writing is all the award I need!
I must add, however, that I've already been given the award and I'm too lazy to come up with three more points (don't hit me!).
But will certainly be acknowledging this on the blog.
THANK YOU!!! :)

Tawna, make sure you put that award on your website and keep me informed of your progess. Great writers rise to the surface sooner or later.
