Cindy L. Beck kindly bestowed this award upon me, and you know what, she made my day, too! Not only that, she "kicked" me into posting again. I know I've been lax lately, and without going into all the gory details as to why, let me just say, THANKS!
Now, in keeping with my "How to Write" theme, let me also add that giving someone a prize or lifting their spirits in some way, in my opinion, is a great way to self-promote. Not that that's the only reason any of us would do such kind deeds, but our names are one of our (as writers) most important assets, and it doesn't hurt to create a soft spot related to our names in someone else's heart, right? It also gives us the opportunity to have our names listed on someone else's site. A good thing.
So, in further keeping with this award and promotion theme, I'd like to now pass this "You Made My Day" award onto Candace E. Salima and Ali Cross, because in past days, your blogs or your responses to my blogs have truly made my day. Thanks, Ladies.
