It's like running...

Today I feel like a runner hitting "the wall."  All I can say is it hurts a lot right in the center where my heart should be.  I was strong.  It took a while to hit it.  It wasn't even over a query.  It was over reaching out when you're nervous about it and then getting your hand slapped.  The worst thing is it's my own fault for not paying attention to detail.  And that is all I'll say about it.

What picked me up a bit afterward was a very incredibly timely and thoughtful blogger award from  She sent me the Versatile Blogger Award.  Much appreciated, JC!


1. Thank the person who sent the award and link back
2. Post the award on your blog
3. Nominate 15 other bloggers to pass the luv
4. Let nominees know you awarded them

I had a hard time picking bloggers for this list.  There are soooo many great people here, but I tried to choose those who I think haven't received this award before.  In no particular order:

1.   Brad Jaeger - Aspiring Author
2.   Damyanti @ Writing on writing : Amlokiblogs
4.   Ellie Garratt
8.   Justine Dell

And don't forget The Blogfeast is TOMORROW!  I can't wait to see your posts.  If you haven't signed up yet... well, why haven't you???  Or you can swing by here tomorrow anyway and check out all the awesome bloggers and their appetite-stimulating (or appetite-supressing, mwahahaha) posts tomorrow.

PS-About the wall... yeah, I know I'm supposed to keep running through it, and I suppose I will.


  1. Note to all: the Blogger Gremlins struck again and won't display my links properly. Believe me. They're entered right. Just like the pics on my 9/11 post won't display right on some browsers. The links work anyway, though.

  2. Thank you so much for thinking of me!

  3. I'm glad you had this award waiting for you just when you needed it.

    I've got my post all ready for tomorrow. Looking forward to reading the entries.


  4. Thank you, JC Martin gave it to me too, and now I have to think of who to pass it on to!

  5. Aww, thank you so much! I haven't been blogging much recently. :/ Hopefully, I'll be able to get back on schedule soon!

  6. So sorry to hear you had a challenging setback, but chin up! You're surrounded by like-minded people who support you -- and many of us have felt the kind of sting you talk about. I know you'll push through that wall to enjoy all the successes on the other side.

    Thanks for the award!! It means a lot that you thought of me <3 Have a great weekend!

    ((hugs)) Nicole

  7. Thanks for the award, Angela! Hope you don't mind, but I've made a couple changes to it in my latest post...

  8. WOW - thank you SOSOSO much! My first blog award! This means a lot to me. And I finally figured out how to make it appear in my sidebar (because I'm such a noob it takes me two weeks to figure out stuff like that).

    Keep your chin up and keep on keepin' on. Things will get better.
