Monday, Monday

Considering I had to go into the part time job this morning and got a late start on the writing, today has been a pretty great day for me. The sun is shining here in Bavaria, Germany and the snow is melting. I'm so close to finishing the first draft of Blood Diamond, I can't sit still. Anyway, first things first.

My goals last week were to finish chapters six and seven of Blood Diamond. Check. Blog Monday through Friday. Check. Yay!!! Two weeks into posting my weekly writing goals and I'm doing great. ;)

So, for this coming week, I plan to finish chapters eight and nine of Blood Diamond. I believe that will bring my Congo adventure to an end. Well, at least the first draft. Of course I will revise, edit, and polish. I also plan to continue my blogging. I do have an award to live up to, you know.

Okay, so it's not a real award but it's still fun. If you remember, Friday I mentioned that Delilah Devlin nominated me for a prolific blogger award. I'm a fairly new blogger so I got a big kick from it. As a winner of this prestigious award, I must link to at least seven other prolific bloggers. It's a fun way to promote traffic to sites and introduce people to new blogs that they may not have found themselves.

Each prolific blogger must link to the blog he/she received the award. So everyone listed below must link back to my blog so folks can check out the other winners.

Below are my nominees. They have fun and informative blogs and they blog fairly regular so check back often.

Bria Quinlan
Delilah Devlin
Denise Golinowski
Gale Stanley
Murder She Writes – This group blog features my chapter-mate Laura Griffin.
Terry Spear
Victoria Janssen

That's it for me today. I've got people to save in the African rain forest. What are some of your favorite blogs to visit?

LOL Riley, we are thinking way too much alike. Guess what I titled my blog post this morning?

Victoria Janssen said...

Thanks, Riley!

Thanks Riley, now do I nominate seven or link to your nominations?

Riley Quinn said...

Maybe we're sharing a brain, Rachel. Who gets it todsy? LOL

You're welcome, Victoria.

Gale, you nominate seven bloggers and also link back to me (like I did with DD).

Wow! Ahem, I'm honored to be a recipient of such a unique award. I'd like to thank my parents, my long-suffering husband and my just plain suffering crit partners!

Riley, you're a hoot! Denise G.

With all the blogging I do I'm surprised no one nominated me!
Nobody likes me.

Hi Riley,
Love the blog! Thanks for the nomination, too, for Murder She Writes. I went to Bavaria as a college student and so enjoyed it--wonderful people! Best of luck with Blood Diamond!!
