Roar for Powerful Words

Random has awarded me this award. Thank you Random! :-)

The rules are:
The people given this award are encouraged to post it on their own blogs; list three things they believe are necessary for good, powerful writing; and then pass the award on to the five blogs they want to honour, who in turn pass it on to five others, etc etc. Let’s send a roar through the blogosphere!

Random's three things were great and I'm reprinting them here..

Three Things I Believe Are Necessary For Good Powerful Writing:
1. The desire
to write
2. Discipline
3. Knowledge of random things

Now mine...
Three Things I Believe Are Necessary For Good Powerful Writing:

1. The passionate need to be heard
2. Honesty - being true to your own voice
3. Discipline (Random's right! writing is hard work)

Now for handing the award on to five others...
I want to dedicate this award to those people I know who I feel truly deserve (or need) this award, regardless of whether they blog or not. So I'm cheating and adding some folk who don't blog, but truly deserve this award.

These are my five nominations:
1. The "clan" - for being brave enough to allow every voice in the group a chance to be heard and claim their own power. You are ALL top of my list!

2. Dennis - for being a powerful writer who sometimes needs reminding that his own personal voice is as important, and should be as powerful, as the words he writes.

3. Victorya - for weaving such power into her present by having the courage to expose the vulnerabilities of her past.

4. Minna - for thinking she is a murmer when she's really a roar that makes the Earth smile and the angels sing.

5. and Robb, whose voice has roared across continents and news media in the unending effort to bring about positive change for the country he loves.

    That's a really lovely award. THank you! I keep forgetting to put up my other awards, but I haven't forgotten any of them.


  5. My thoughts on the Three things, all of which you have, Michelle ~

    1) the heart to feel and see something important to share
    2) the voice and words with which to share it, so that it can be heard and understood
    3) the courage to move your fingers.

    This is yours.

    Love, minna

    p.s. Thank you, Friend.
