The Critic Gets Beautified

Beautiful Blogger Award

I feel pretty, oh so pretty…

So this past week I was awarded the Beautiful Blogger award, thanks to Candace Gauger. (Well, I guess two awards: the Beautiful Blogger Award and the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, but I’m just picking one because numero uno, I like this icon better, and…well, yeah, that’s pretty much it.)


I met Candace through NaNoWriMo and we’ve gotten to hang out more at the stuff going on throughout the year. She is also kind enough to beta read my WIP. You should go say hi!

According to the rules, I’m supposed to give you seven things about me and pass the award along. Let’s face it, you probably already know way too much about me.

So let’s do something different. I’ll give you seven random lists of seven random things.

The last 7 lines I wrote for Camp NaNo

“Assuming we can get everything we need tomorrow morning…” Ari calculated the travel time in his head. “A week and a half, barring any more unforeseen disasters.”

Mason groaned. “It’s going to be a long week and a half.”


For the longest time, Kiral stared at the sea.

It wasn’t like the ocean in the south, near Chibron. There it was warmer, calmer. Here, even from her distance, Kiral could see how the water peaked with whitecaps, with waves that were likely as tall as she was.

  1. You are quite welcome! I have to say, your story is great! i could not stop reading it even to make notes on those few sections I found. I’m going through it now and will be sending it to you soon-ish. I have to do some file shuffling so I can finish while my PC is being a brat.

  2. Ack! You stole all the people I was going to tag! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Oh well, guess I’ll have to find some more victims…err…awesome people to tag this on. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. […] are eleven questions I have to answer and eleven people I have to tag. Considering the last time I got an award and actually tagged people, I got in trouble, I’m just going to refrain from tagging anybody, okay? Call it […]
