And then there is the lawyer in North Carolina...He knew one of my heroes---a player in the Negro leagues---and apparently I am going to have to stalk him to get any information.
Many of my blogging friends juggle a dozen or more projects at any given time. So the degree to which I walk the walk is probably pathetic. But for me, it's progress.
A couple of days ago, Donna wrote a post about a forgotten word, and her eyes immediately lit on one of the definitions: sisters of the quill. The bloggers who commented fell in love with the idea of a community of hardworking writers, a support system for schriveners...
And thus the Sisters of the Quill award was born...

Because, after all, if we're writers, we're kindred spirits. There is a connecting thread that binds us to each other. (kinda like handcuffs)
Donna passed on this award to several writers. She made her proclamation: Spread the sisterhood! Give the award to deserving writers, to women whose talent needs to be recognized. And since I enjoy going to the fence and "chatting" with my blogging friends, I am going to pass the award to out-of-town writers who regularly wow me...
Katie at Katie Gates Writes
Lisa Ricard Claro at Writing in the Buff
Janel at her post
OJ Gonzalez and her blog
Shay and her poetry
C. Hope Clark and her blog
(I would also pass it onto to Pearl and her blog, but she don't do no stinkin' awards---she's too busy ministering to bus riders and unemployed cats.)
So...the sisterhood is spreading. Keep it growing...And keep on writing.
