Announcement and Awards!

The Announcement

It's September, and on the Novelty Fiction group blog, it's time for our second monthly microfiction contest! Check it out and participate. Just create a story in 100 words or less, using the five words in this month's writing prompt.  Last month, there was an honorarium and publication offer for the winner, as well as for each entrant, so it's an exciting opportunity. Have fun, and good luck!

The Awards

A huge thank you to Aimee Renee, who nominated me for two wonderful awards: the Versatile Blogger Award and the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award.  I'm just blown away by the honor, and the awards are so cute :).

Here are the rules for accepting the awards:

1) Thank and link to the person who nominates you.
2) Share seven random facts about yourself.
3) Pass the award to five more blogger friends.
4) Contact and congratulate the blogs nominated.

So, here are seven random facts about me:

1) I can't grow my fingernails long because they peel and break.
2) I'm not political at all. Yet a bit of politics somehow ended up in The MirrorMasters. No idea how that happened!
3) I'm an only child. And always wanted a sibling.
4) Big Brother is my guilty TV pleasure. I'm watching it as I write this.
5) I'm not sure what my Hogwarts house would be, but I can't wait for the official sorting on Pottermore next month to find out! If there were an equivalent of Divergent, that's what I'd be.
6) Desserts are my weakness. I have such a sweet tooth!
7) I have been married for three years. Time has flown by...

And the awards will be passed along to...

1) Stephanie Allen at My Personal Fairytale
2) Lisa Fee at Tall Tales
3) Peggy Eddleman at Will Write for Cookies
4) Peaches Ledwidge at Conceive Writing
5) HowLynn Martin at HowLynn Time
