Sentimental Serendipity

And the Award goes to....

My good blogging buddy, Carol Riggs at Artzicarol Ramblings, recently passed on two of her many awards to me. Thanks so much, girlfriend!
The Liebster Rules:

1. Give to a blogger with less than 200 followers.
2. That blogger will pass it on to 5 followers.
3. According to Babelfish, Liebster means Dearest.

Congratulations to the new Liebster Award winners:
Debbie - Bookworm Bites Back
Tina - Capable Garnet
Sandra - Conversations about Characters
(Unfortunately, I was unable to find two more bloggers who fulfilled the requirements.
If you do meet the rules, please receive this award as one of the other two winners!)

The Lucky 7 Meme Award Rules:

1. Go to page 77 of your current manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 lines on your blog as they're written. No cheating!
4. Tag 7 other writers to pass this meme on to.

My Excerpt:
From page 77 of my historical fiction/fantasy MG novel,
Livvi Biddle - A Most Extraordinary Girl:

"Time travel?" asked the emotionally exhausted granddaughter.

"Why, yes. It's the only explanation for my experience sixty years ago, and your experience today.

If we're both telling the truth, then you indeed were transported back in time -

I just wish I knew why," elaborated the elder Olivia.

"So, let me get this straight. You believe in all this...magic stuff?" Livvi asked.

Congrats to these Lucky 7 winners who get to do the same:

1. Kriston - Words Escape Me
2. Tanya - Life's like that
3. Tara - Tara Tyler Talks
4. Elizabeth - Chandara Writes
5. Marcy - mainewords
6. Linda - Writers Do Laundry, Too
7. Brandi - Brandi Boddie - Penning Praises

You Lucky Seven have been officially tagged!

Thanks again, to my blogging buddies. Happy Writing!
