I'm posting less often, these days. The big inter-continental move is next month, and between dealing with that, trying to polish and submit my current middle grade novel, and preparing for the Writers Workshop at Chautauqua, my time is precious.

But, I need to thank two people for three awards that I've received over the past few weeks.  Deirdre at A Storybook World awarded me both the Powerful Woman Writer Award...

and the Creative Blog Award.

Thank you, Deirdre, for the gorgeous awards (she designed them herself). I haven't been able to determine that there are rules for passing these along, but I may do so anyway. But that will be fodder for another post.

Thanks, too, to Elizabeth Mueller, for the zebra:

A to Z was great in terms of discovering new blogs. It also taught me that I just can't blog six days a week. I am in awe of those of you who do.
How do you get anything else done?!?


  1. Congratulations for those Awards Alison!

    And all the best with the move, the novel and the workshop - wow, that's quite a lot. You just HAVE to take easy with blogging I guess.

    Answer to your question - one hand on the keyboard, while the other holds the feeding bottle.

  2. Thanks, Grandpa. That's the secret, is it? ;)

  3. Congratulations, Alison, on those Awards. I bet you're excited about Chautauqua. Best wishes with all the life changes you're headed into. I have no idea how anyone can blog six days a week. Never tried it--yet!

  4. Congratulations on the awards! And as a co-host of the event, I didn't get a lot done last month. Did work on revisions of my next book though.

  5. How cool are the graphics on these? LOL

  6. Congrats on your awards. I couldn't post 6 days a week, so congrats to you for even trying the A to Z challenge. I didn't dare. I only post once a week at the moment. That works for me. And then I spend a lot of time during the rest of the week reading and commenting on other blogs.

    Good luck with the move and Chautauqua!

  7. Wow, I didn't know you were going to Chautauqua! I am so happy for you (and so very green with envy!).

    In the meantime, good luck with the move. You clearly have much on your plate.

  8. Congrats on the awards!

    Good luck on your move and the writing. That's a lot to deal with!

    Have a great weekend.

  9. Congratulations on these awards, and I would like to pass on another one. :-)

  10. Clara: I can't wait until Chautauqua!!

    Alex: Thanks! Well done on the revisions. :)

    DU: Pretty cool, I have to agree.

    Brooke: I think I'm going to one day a week for the summer, at least. I'm too preoccupied with everything else to do much more.

    Julie: Thanks. Maybe next year you can go! (They have scholarships...)

    Medeia: Thank you!

    K.C.: Thank you!!
