A lovely weaver of words honored me with the Spring Trust Award. This comes from a writer of beautiful poetry, Worlds of Words. Please go read what he has to say, you will walk away deep in thought. Trust is an extremely important value to me. It is not something I take lightly, so I will only be awarding this to ONE person.
As writers, our words are like newborns. We take words and we create life. We nurture them and hold on to them until they are ready to be released. And then we send them out into the world and hope they are accepted. We construct images and trigger emotions. These words generate vulnerability in us and approval validates us. The power of the word should never be underestimated. Because to a writer it is EVERYTHING. There is absolutely no one I trust more for an honest critique than Karal, http://theorangechair.org/. I also trust Karal explicitly as a friend and fellow writer. Karal is the recipient of the Spring Trust Award.
I picked up the Honest Scrap Award from Jingle. Jingle hosts the Thursday‘s Poets’ Rally where you will friend many wonderful poets. Jingle is amazing. She is very talented and one of the kindest souls I’ve had the honor of meeting through Bloggyland. Please pay her a visit.
