Patty awarded me the roar award and I'm so excited because this is my second award. Eeek.
Those people I've given this award to are encouraged to post it on their own blogs; list three things they believe are necessary for good, powerful writing; and then pass the award on to the five blogs they want to honor, who in turn pass it on to five others, etc etc.
Let's send a roar through the blogosphere!
The image above can be copied and pasted onto other blogs. Also, a small size of the award for sidebars can be found over at the writing circle site.
My three things necessary for good powerful writing are:
- Openness. I find that it's hard to really write good stuff when you are afraid to be open and honest. One of the things I try and do everyday is not censor what I write. I try and let you all see the good, the bad and the ugly.
- Humor. You have to have a sense of humor about everything. Not just from a that was a good joke point of view but I think it is important to be able to laugh at yourself. You have to be able to take the criticism with a grain of salt and not censor your writing out of fear of what other people might think. You just have to take it all with a sense of humor.
- Patience. Writing often takes a great deal of patience. There are days when I don't feel like writing and then I realize that maybe today will be the day that I write something great and make one person laugh. I try and write daily just out of the hopes that my blog might have been the one thing that put a smile on your face.
Ginger: I tag her because she writes from a totally different point of view then most of us are used to on here. She doesn't write about parenthood or marriage she writes about being single. It is so awesome to have someone be so open about what they are living right now.
Emery: She was the first blog I ever read and I loved it. I love reading her struggles with mommy hood and I love watching as she solves it all and makes perfect sense of it. She always has something great to say that really makes me stop and think, hey everything is going to be okay.
Living Life in TX: I love her blog. It is so real and she is dealing with things that most of us couldn't even imagine. I read her daily and I thrive on watching her cope with her day. She totally amazes me each day.
Rachel: I tag her because she has such a different outlook on parenting. She always tries the thing outside of the box first. I love her approach to healthy parenting. She makes me want to be just like her. I can't believe all of the clever things she comes up with for her son medically and how she deals with everything. Plus she loves to talk about poop like me.
And finally Sarah and Jordan: Seriously, he has twins, she writes everyday in detail and she has twins. This girl just amazes the shit out of me.
