The Superior Scribbler Award

This week I got a cute addition to my iconography from Alyson over at Laugh in the Sun:


Thanks, Alyson! Now if I could just get the publishing industry to see things your way … Anyway, this award comes with what Dr. Venkman might refer to as “guidelines”:

1. Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.

2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.

3. Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.

4. Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit This Post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!

5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

I’m not really sure who all reads Scribblings and is into blog-tag awards, so I’ll just hand this out to a few others and let them do with it what they will!

  • Almostgotit, whose name could also be the story of my writing career
  • Gina, whose diary is rather more uplifting than Dennis’s, with less stuffie carnage to boot
  • The Adorkable Grrl, who recently applied for an internship with Wired magazine — good luck!
  • Slag Zombie’s Sideshow, which has recently had a number of interesting posts about his newfound interest in Stephen King books
  • Narcissistic Indulgence, whose opinions are always fun to read
  • Amanda over at The Life and Times of a New Yorker, who is always reading something! Well, except perhaps for now, while she’s in Egypt …
  • A Blog in the Rough, who’s nearing the end of NaNoWriMo for the year
  • Shadow, whose poetry is guaranteed to warm up the chilliest day
  • And Kristen, whose book Homefront I quite enjoyed reading recently.

I know that’s way more than five, but I have lots of scribbly friends who deserve it!  And like Venkman says … guidelines.

Thanks! Next week I’ll be back with another rejection letter, so we can all bask in the glow of my futile effort to make a go of it in the world of publishing; but for this week, we can all enjoy being superior scribblers. 😉

  1. Thanks for the award! Once I get back from the family Thanksgiving dinner (I feel a blog coming on, don’t you?) I’ll have to check out the other blogs in this post that received the award, and take on the task of passing the award out to others.

    Jim says: Thanksgiving dinner with the family seems like a rich source of material indeed!


  2. Aww, that’s cute. 🙂

    And “scribbler” would be apt for me. I love writing stories in longhand, but when it’s time to transfer them to the computer… well, let’s just say I have about six stories that are in need of an archeologist who specializes in translating hieroglyphics.

    Jim says: I know someone who might be able to help … 😉


  3. Thanks Jim. I feel undeserving but I’ll accept anyway. 😉

    On another note, every time I hear about the Twilight books I can’t help but feel a little (angry is too strong) regretful because you had a vampire book when they weren’t cool and deserved to be basking in the popularity she is now.

    Jim says: Thanks Gina! The Twilight books appear to feature the sort of “tormented” and “sympathetic” vampires that some agents encouraged me to write, and which I can’t stand. (To reiterate my position: Vampires are monsters!) That’s why I’ve avoided commenting on anybody’s posts about how eager they are to see the Twilight movie.


  4. Hey James,
    I’m very behind in reading blogs and catching up with sending my “thank you” notes as well! What a fun bloggy honor, and I thank you sir.

    Vampires are MONSTERS? Next thing you’re going to say we shouldn’t pal around with serial killers either. Oh wait… vampires are serial killers. So what’s not to love about serial killers?


  5. Thanks, glad you enjoy hearing my opinions.

    As always I enjoy reading your blogs and hearing about the destruction hurricane Dennis leaves behind.
