KSM - scary!


Have you been Shellified?
Now you have! Thanks for the scary good award, Shelly. You're too funny. Go visit her and Chad to get one. It's worth it!

And I'm afraid I have a couple more awards to thank people for. I'm running out of things to say! I'm just glad these are pretty easy...

Thanks, Tyrean, for the Great Commentor award. She's so sweet! Anyone who comments today can take one with them, cause you're great commentors!
Thanks to Ashley, Lady Gwen, CM Brown and Huntress!thanks Emily & Leigh!




And thanks, Julie for the Lucky 7 award.



Here are the rules:
1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript
2. Go down to line 7.
3. Copy down the next 7 lines.
4. Tag 7 others. (as the awards get around, this becomes optional)

I like the surprise excerpts that come out of this. I pulled this from the most recent version of my old chick lit, "Jacks and Jills and Jezebels" just for kicks. Ack!

“Me too,” added Jamie. “That does sound like fun. I’ve never been to a bicycle race before.” She helped Brenda turn around so she wouldn’t stumble, and got a “whatd’ja do that for?” look.
“We’ll see,” said Holly. She wasn’t excited about perspiring in the sun for hours, then going to a party as a stinky mess with a bunch of younger guys. Maybe I could just meet them at the party, or not go at all, she thought. She was tired of all the partying.

Now, I'd like to see the Lucky 7 MeMe's of...Deana Barnhart, Neil, L.G. Smith, L.D. Masterson, and Jemi Fraser

In other news...
Elana Johnson's book Surrender came out last week and her blogfest of Never Surrender stories is today - inspirational!

Don't forget to sign up for  Jaycee and Victoria 's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Blog Hop" next week, June 22nd!

Keep writing you Nano-ers! Rooting you on as I finish my edits to be completely unencumbered in August!

Oh, and in August, Deana is bringing back her "Gearing up to get an agent" blogfest! Keep your eyes open for the announcement.

I haven't seen those awards before. Love the mummy one. I don't think my mom even knows what a blog is. My mother in law is way more supportive. :D

Love the meme. I'm not one for perspiring in the sun, either. :P
