I got this cool Prolific Blogger Award from fellow writer and ICL instructor Andrea Vlahakis. I love this picture. First, that's a great library, isn't it? And with a rueful chuckle I have to note that the poor girl looks like she has a headache. She's tired. She's frustrated. Sometimes that's the truth about writing. I should email this picture to my daughter, who's graduating from university in a mere few weeks with a psychology (and English) degree and label it "Distress-Focused Humor." She would share a chuckle with me. The picture relieves the pain of the truth by poking fun at it.
But she's persistent, isn't she? Look at that revision process. And I like that she's a bit retro. Look at all that paper. (I hope she prints on the back too for drafts, though. :)) Rather than pass on the award to specific individuals, I want all of you reading this, bloggers and writers, to remember we all share the ups and downs of this art/craft/business/passion, and that persistence and steady work make us prolific even if we never dreamed we could wear that label. I wish all of you a prolific day in the world of books.
