*Note: The quest for scholarship has taken an irking turn (last week was the deadline for a scholarship I qualify for), which is the reason there's a huge gap in my posts. :( However, I will be catching up now that we are on Spring Break. :)



  1. Sweet--thanks so much! What a great thing to come home to (I've been in Arizona for a week!)

    Hope you are having a wonderful writing week!

  2. Aww, you're welcome. :D It's the least I can do! Your blog has really inspired me, esepcially that post No Apologies.

  3. Melody, Thank you so much for the blog award!

    BTW, love the profile pic (the dress is stunning!) and I'm super-intrigued by your blog's title.

    Keep writing and keep being awesome!

  4. You're welcome! And thank you, I'm glad you like my dress!

    I'm also glad that you like the blog title. Sirius is a character from a children's series I have been writing. :)

  5. Congrats for getting an award, and thanks for passing it on :)
    Also it's great there's a few new links in there for me to visit.
    Wagging Tales - Blog for Writers

  6. You are so sweet! Thank you so much for the award.

    Congrats on your award and all the college acceptances. That is so fantastic. And wow, two months and you'll be free!! (I remember that's how I felt after graduating H.S.) :)

  7. You're both welcome! :) I enjoyed your blogs so much, you deserved it! :)

    Yes, only two more months until freedom! :)

  8. Congrats on the award! Gratitude is pretty much a necessity in order to survive in the writing world. Writers as a group tend to be a grateful bunch, and karma recognizes this in spades. Pleasure to meet you via the A-Z Challenge!

  9. I love learning new things about people. :D

    Congrats on the award, and thank you so very much for passing it onto me! Following your rules of acceptance, I'll see if I can find some time to pass it on as well. ^_^ (My son's sick and my brain feels like mush, so it might take me a day or two.)

    Enjoy your spring break!

  10. Thank you so much for the shout out, Melody. I'm glad the No Apologies post struck a chord. And good luck with the scholarship quest. Let us know how it turns out!

  11. Congratulations on the award, and thank you so much for passing it on to me! :)

    I love your profile pic--I was quite curious when I saw it come up in my comment thread!

  12. It is nice to meet you as well, Mr. Beesler! :)

    You're welcome, Ms. Josephsen! :) I hope your son feels better soon. :)

    Ms. Pulgisi, the No Apologies post was just the words of widsom I needed. :) And thank you, I will let you know how the scholarship hunt turns out.

    The Golden Eagle, thank you! Your blog has such pretty pictures, I very much enjoy it! :)

  13. And you're right, Mr. Beesler. Gratitude is important, especially for writers! :)

  14. Thank you very much Miss Jackson. :) And wow, that is a late spring break... Mine was three weeks ago!

  15. You're welcome, Miss Bea.

    Yes, our spring break started yesterday. It's one of the downsides of being in high school. :(

    I hope you had a great spring break though! :)

  16. Congratulations! An award is always a good thing to get. :)
    Great meeting you through the A-Z!
