Roar for Powerful Words

The inimitable

has honored me with a Roar for Powerful Words.

The Award
“According to the Shameless Lions Writing Circle — the award was created to acknowledge “those people who have blogs we love, can’t live without, where we think the writing is good and powerful.” Each award recipient then presents the award to five other bloggers, helping to scream from the mountains the good news about the powerful posts that are produced every day in the blogosphere.”
(Copied from Eric’s blog. I don’t know who he stole it from…)

As the legend of the great purple lion demands, I’ll pay it forward by honoring five of my favorite bloggers with a Roar:

Because there are different ways to roar…


Some of us are loud bloggers, chatting about everything and posting pictures all over the place.  Some of us are quieter — bloggers of fewer words, but those words have a big impact.  The two above have inspired me on more occasions than I can count.

Because they talk brilliantly about great books…

and Miss Erin.

These two ladies are always blogging about a good book, and they’ve introduced me to more than one terrific title I might have otherwise missed.

Because she dishes out sage advice and good book suggestions (and is a darn good agent, too)…

Plus, how can you not love someone who posts a manifesto on her LJ?

What I’d really like to do is say thanks to everyone on my friends-list.  You’re all an important part of my writing life, and I love sharing your funny stories, revision struggles, and happy news.  Roar on…

  1. Thank YOU for the gift of your words – and I love how you and you mom chat back and forth. I have a similar, fun relationship with mine, and it’s nice to see another family like that.
