The Voice of Your Muse Receives Premio Dardos Award

Awards are great! And this blog just won one earlier today, thanks to Missy Frye at the Incurable Disease of Writing blog.

It's the Premio Dardos (“prize darts” in Spanish), and it's given in recognition of cultural, ethical, literary and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing.

Now, it's my turn to pass the torch -- er, dart -- to these 15 blogs that, to me, meet the same criteria.

(Here's how it works: recipients accept the award by posting it on their blog along with the name of the person that granted the award and a link to his/her blog. They then pass the award to 15 other blogs that are worthy of the acknowledgment, remembering to contact each to let them know they have been selected.)

Here's my list, in alphabetical order. Check 'em out...
• Malcolm Campbell ~ Writer's Notebook
• Lin Ennis ~ Read - Write - Shoot
• Jett Farrell ~ Fishing with Crossbows
• Kimberlee Ferrell ~ Freedom Writing
• B.L. Lindstrom ~ Authorian Adventures in the Ether
• Julie Isaac ~ WritingSpirit Resources
• Gail Gaymer Martin ~ Writing Fiction Right
• Kaiser A. Nelson ~ Radio Free Bard
• Keath Pyeatt ~ Horror with Heart
• Susan Schanerman ~ heARTmatters
• Dan Stone ~ First A Dream
• Stephen TIano ~ Stephen Tiano
• Barbara Vey ~ Beyond Her Book
• Marvin D. Wilson ~ Free Spirit
• Chris Zydel ~ Creative Juices Arts & Painting from the Wild Heart

Hey thanks Mark!

Thanks very much, Mark David. I am particularly honored as I am not a writer per se—that is, writing is not the point of my writing, as with those who have set out to be authors. (Tho' I must admit that I have thought recently of resurrecting my 35-year old idea for a novel about a private eye who does a missing person search for God.)

Again, thank you. I will be getting on my "paying it forward" post later today.

Dear Mark,

Thank you so very much. I am honored, delighted and more than a little surprised... but in a really good way. You have really made my day today!

Thank you for your big heart and your natural generosity!

Hi Mark David,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've let up on the business blogs a little and "indulged" in the time to add a few more posts to this personal blog about writers, writing, and my life as a writer. And since you've appeared in my blog before, I'm delighted to close the circle by being on yours.

Hugs and kisses,
