Carol Valdez Miller of Carol's Prints made an exciting announcement on Thursday: she finished her MS! This is her second YA novel and we bloggers were wondering where she had been this past week...So congratulations to Carol!
In her honor, and in anticipation of the completion of hundreds of MS's in the near future (surely we can do hundreds, right guys?), I created an award. On the surface, naming such an award seems simple. Originally it was to be the "Complete MS Award," but that didn't strike me as witty enough.
So I now present, to Carol, the first ever "Writers Know Award," because only fellow writers know how hard you worked to get to this point. And we (you all don't mind if I speak for you, do you?) honor your accomplishment today.The only rule attached to said award is that you are allowed to pass it along to whomever you please upon completion of their MS. I hope many of you will reach this point and receive this award in the near future - or far future! Just put a little feeler out there in the blog-world and champagne will pop in your honor.
But today, Carol, it is for you! Congratulations.
