Friday Round-Up - #86

My buddy, Lynn Morrissey, wrote a wonderful article on expectations. While she doesn't talk about the subject in terms of writing, I think you'll see how it can apply to our work.

Kathryn Lang, at Successful Freelance Writer, urges us to wake up to possibilities and gives us some helpful steps. (Be sure to scroll up to see the post.)

Thanks to Kathryn Neff Perry, at Katt's Komments, for the Prolific Blogger Award.

While I'm supposed to pass this on to seven bloggers, due to time pressures, I'll say, "thanks," to all my blogging friends. You bring much happiness, knowledge, and encouragement into my life.

Have a great writing/reading week!

What fun! I am often tickled by the creativity of the award-producer. There's so many pretty, clever, amazing buttons being shared throughout cyberspace - and some blogs are decorated with a good many of them.

Yours is a deserved award, friend. You're so faithful to post, and equally faithful to make your way to many a blog site. :)

Blessings,
Kathleen
