I pick you. And you, and you, and you, and you.

The lovely Abby Annis has awarded me a Superior Scribbler award. How awesome is that?

Now I get to return the favor to 5 super worthy bloggers. And the winners are ... *drum roll, please:

1. Lisa and Laura Write -- b/c they're just freakin' awesome and never fail to make me laugh. And, oh yeah, they have an agent and they post about their WIPs and submissions and did I mention I'm a teensy weensy bit jealous? No? Good.

2. Kori over at Author in Progress. Because she writes like a madwoman--seriously, I'm talking thousands of words a day when she gets going--and makes me want to do it, too.

3. Little Ms. J - Jeanette Schneider. Because no matter what she posts, she always makes me think, "Why didn't I write a blog about that?!" And because she's so darn honest about her (rather fascinating) life that I can't wait to see her memoir in print :)

4. Purple Clover. Because she's Little Ms. J's sister, and sisters are awesome. And because she started this JuJu writing challenge for the summer that really kicked my butt into gear. I'd probably still be sitting on 5k if it weren't for her.

5. Jamie D of The Variety Pages. Because she posts flash fiction and serial novels and has contests involving macrophotography. And she has a nail art blog that makes me smile.

And that's all she wrote.

If you all wanna play along, here are the rules:

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!


Lisa and Laura said...

Aww! This is turning into the best Monday ever! Thank you so much! We feel so lucky to have people that actually read our randomness on a day-to-day basis. Hopefully it will all pay off for you guys at some point when we turn into the next Stephenie Meyers and you can say you knew us way back when. Ha!

Anyways, I get so excited when I see a comment from you on the blog because I know it's going to be hilarious and I know it's going to be something I wholeheartedly agree with. Exhibit A: Your comment about Dawon Leery's picture. I guarantee you are the only person (aside from Laura) who clicked on that link and found that sad sack picture of Dawson entertaining. And that, JessJordan, is why I love you.

Thanks for sharing these gems with us! I follow two of the five blogs and am very glad to have the opportunity to meet more fellow writers on the blogosphere!

And congratulations, of course, to you too for your great scribblings here. :)

Jamie D. said...

Aw, shucks. Thanks Jess - and congrats on winning this award yourself! I'm always entertained over here. :-)

I follow one of the blogs above, but will check out all the rest this week.

Now to pick 5 more people to pass it along to...

jessjordan said...

Jamie: You are quite welcome! Keep the entertainment coming :)

Weronika: Thank you much! And I'm glad to introduce you to other bloggers. That's what it's all about, right?

Lila (I can call you Lila, can't I?): I can't WAIT until you're the next Stephanie Meyers and I get to say, "Hey, I know them! We laughed over that sad sack Dawson together!" :)

Little Ms J said...

I am so embarrassed. Ok, so here's what happened - Blogger had a meltdown and I had two profiles for a minute. I started following you on profile two, so I don't get updates on the main profile. So... now you have me following you twice, because I feel like a jerk that I didn't even know that you gave me an award!

Thank you thank you thank you! As you know by now, I require a lot of attention. Love your blog and your comments are fabu (I said that in a fancy NY debutante voice).

You made my day!

jessjordan said...

Okay, so you get embarrassed and, as a result, I get followed by you twice. I definitely see myself as the winner here--no feelings of jerkiness necessary. :)

You're very, very, very welcome! I'm glad I stumbled upon your blog. I think I have the infamous fabu (I stole your word, sorry, but it was fabu; see, there I go again!) LiLa sisters to thank for that.

p.s. You should use your NY debutante voice at your new country club. I bet you'd fit right in :oP

PurpleClover said...

Aww, thanks so much for the kudos!! I appreciate it! I'm so glad it kicked someone's butt. I think it is terrible that I had all these great plans to kick out 42k words and I've only managed to lose 30k words and replace only 3k. lol. I should have been kicked off the island a long time ago...haha.
