I was thinking today about how my blog friends are REAL friends too. We use this modern technological way to find each other and come together from all over this planet because of our shared love of writing and reading. We share pieces of ourselves with each other, we cheer each other on, we make each other laugh and think and cry. This writer's community we have here is spectacular. Thanks for allowing me to be part of it.
Speaking of spectacular friends...
My dear friends Jon Paul from Where Sky Meets Ground and Tara from Feel Of Something New both gifted me with the JOURNEY AWARD recently:
Thank you JP and Tara. You are both truly friends, real and spectacular.
This is award is to be passed on to those who are helping me along on my writing journey.
Honestly, each of you help me along, in your unique way, so feel free to grab it and pass it along.
But since I'm told I must pass this along, I shall pass it on to those friends who make a point to reach out to me, who in some unique way inspire me, who truly do help me along this writing journey (in no order):
Courtney's Southern Princess
SarahJayne at Writing In The Wilderness
DL's Cruising Altitude
Portia at Portia Sisco
Carolina at Carol's Prints
Anne and Piedmont Writer
Summer at ...and this time concentrate!
Laurel at Laurel's Leaves
Elliot Grace at So close, but...
Sarah at Falen Formulates Fiction
Hannah at Musings of a Palindrome
And, honestly, every single one of YOU.
(I can't link all 300+ of you or my fingers will fall off and I'll never get to pee or bathe... so consider yourself tagged!)
Sweet Janet at Janet Sumner Johnson kindly awarded me with the Sunshine Award:
Thank you Janet!
I'd like to pass this award on to the FUNNY Fran at Being Me
These two delightful ladies, j.leigh.bailey at Stories of the Drakon and Tessa at Tessas Blurb both gave me the Versatile Blogger Award:
Thank You ladies! I'm grateful.
The rules of this award are: share seven things about yourself and pass it on to fifteen Versatile Bloggers that you follow.
But you know I'm a bit of a rule breaker (and you can scroll down to the post below and find out all kinds of things about me you never wanted to know) so I won't waste your time here. This post isn't about me...it's about YOU, my spectacular friends!
Because this one isn't overly 'girlie' (girly?) and I'm being lazy versatile, I pass this one on to all my DUDE Friends. So if you're a male, I bestow this green award upon you, kind sirs.

- My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
