I've been tagged and awarded! I've been awarded the Roar for Powerful Words award, by Jenn Hallowell at Working Writer. The rules follow:
- Link back to the person who tagged you.
- List three things that you believe are necessary to make writing good and powerful.
- Tag five others and comment at their blog informing them that they’ve been tagged with this award:
1.) Passion - Writing about something you love or hate, with enthusiasm, is extemely important. If you're apathetic about your story or topic, your readers will be, too.
2.) The right words - There are so many ways to say something. Make sure you're using the word that exactly conveys your meaning.
3.) Show, don't tell - Paint pictures with your words. Look at it as the difference between a stick drawing and a water color painting.
The 5 people I choose to carry this on are:
