I am so honored. Miss Erin nominated me for the "Roar for Powerful Words Award" from The Shameless Lions Writing Circle. And I'm in great company. She also nominated Little Willow, Sara Lewis Holmes, Shelf Elf and Sara Miller.
The fact this award comes from Miss Erin is icing on the cake. She's a dedicated kidslit blogger, a postergirlz for readergirlz and on the MG Fiction nominating panel for the Cybils. Thank you, Miss Erin.
Hmmm. Now who should I nominate? I'm supposed to celebrate the powerful writing of five bloggers.
Liz Garton Scanlon: Liz writes pure poetry in her posts. Liz is one of my first blog pals, and I simply adore her writing. And the fact she's gathered a group of wonderful bloggers to write a crown sonnet, which I cannot wait to read, well this is totally deserved.
Robin Brande: There's power in Robin's words. She is encouraging, inspiring, and funny. And the fact people were "betting" on when Robin would return to blogging, well that tells you just how much we're all addicted to her words.
Seven Impossible Things for Breakfast: Jules and Eisha of 7-Imp simply rawk. Detailed book reviews, unbeatable interviews, organizing Blogging for a Cure for Robert's Snow, writing articles for Poetry Foundation...need I go on?
Finding Wonderland: These smart ladies can write a thoughtful post that makes my brain hurt (in a good way).
MotherReader: I can't drink a thing when I read MotherReader's posts for fear I'd drown my laptop. That's how funny her posts can be. And when you can make people laugh with the written word, that's magic.
