I've enjoyed reading stories for this first writing challenge and have also enjoyed some of the comments received for mine. My happy place just got a little sweeter with this award:
MyTricksterGod. I am humbled and tickled.
The only rule is to pay it forward. That, I most certainly can do. Because of this campaign, I've had a chance to meet so many new writers. The choices for this award are ridiculously hard. All the blogs I follow matter to me in different and important ways. *grrrr*
So, to make my choice say something, as MyTricksterGod did, I choose Maria Zannini. Her blog is the first blog I followed. She's been inspirational and her Indie Roadshow was beyond educational. She gives her followers a chance to see a day in the life of a woman who is a homesteader, lover of dogs, writer extraordinaire and bears the heart of a lioness. I suppose a Roaring Lion Blog award is appropriate for that last reason alone.
