This is a dual purpose post this morning. First and foremost, it’s time to announce the winners of my Mighty 100 celebration giveaway. I really appreciate everybody who took the time to comment and leave their thanks. It was hard to let the random number generator arbitrarily pick the lucky two, but with two clicks of the mouse it was done. Here are winners:
The $25 Amazon Gift card for one of the original 100 is awarded to Gina at A Muse in my Pocket.
The $15 Barnes & Noble gift card for any entrant is awarded to Falen at Falen Formulates Fiction.
If the winners will send their e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org, I’ll get those to you right away.
My second piece of business this morning involves a different type of award. I received another blog award last week (same award from two different people - YAY me), and since I’m already handing out smiles, how about a couple more?
This was bestowed upon me from Catherine at Winged Writer and Krista Lynn Jensen. It’s the Over The Top award, and even though it depicts a shapely woman in a apron, I’ll still proudly display it on my blog.
This award comes with a questionnaire that must be completed with one-word answers only. So…here goes.

That’s enough fun for now. Everybody back to work. :)
- Continually trying to answer the question...can a man of few words write a successful novel?
I'm a Mystery/Thriller/Suspense writer from small town USA who struggles everyday to balance my passion for prose against the need to be a full-time bread winner. Finding ways to devote more time to my writing is the challenge, but for now all I can do is follow this tug at my heart to wherever it leads. I'm here primarily to soak up all the knowledge I can from the writing-centric blogosphere, but I'll do my best to contribute by thinking of new and innovative ways to churn the writing pot.
