an award and day 5 of the tiny little contest

Today’s (dead give away) quote:

“I suggest a new strategy. Let the wookie win.”

Meanwhile, I’m definitely working on namesake now as evidenced by my bulletin board, which is now filled with 3 x 5 cards with namesake info rather than Grimoire. I've also cleared my desk of all the reference material I had piled up, leaving only The Encyclopedia of Magic and Alchemy, Culpeper’s Complete Herbal, and The Witch Book. I think that will suffice, don’t you?

Oh, and I received this award, from my fellow blogger Kimberly. Thank you Kim!

I’m supposed to award it to seven other bloggers and share seven things that make me smile. First the bloggers:

The Words Crafter

But you should really just check out everyone on my blog roll. They’re all pretty cool. And if you guessed who said the above in which movie then contact me to get your bookmark. Happy Monday all. As for seven things that make me smile, I’ll post that tomorrow along with the next quote :)


  1. Thanks, bunches for the award. Woohoo! And congrats on yours. Double woohoo!

    Cold here today but oh so sunny and bright. Just got in from work, headed to the market real quick for a few goodies. Hope you're day is groovin' and that you ate something nummy.

    Until next time, Happy Eating!

  2. I thought I'd try and visit a few bloggy friends and look what I find. Thank you so much for thinking of me! I was reading your About Me section. You work at an animal hospital, wow!

    Congratulations on receiving the award, and for passing it along to me. I'll try and get it passed around soon.

    (Sorry this sounds sluggish; still recovering from strep et all...)

  3. Congrats on your award! It's getting colder here in Northern Virginia which means it's going to be really cold where you are. Stay warm and write on!

  4. Congratulations on the award! And I would guess the quote is Hans Solo.

  5. Nice try, Danette, but no. I think he had the line before, something like, 'because a wookie doesn't tear your your arm off if he loses,' which prompts the suggestion.

  6. CONGRATS on your well deserved award! :)

    And on starting a new WiP. Isn't it fun to start on a Shiny New Idea?!

    I've a board with a bunch of 3x5 cards on it too, but for the revisions. I need to tweak my structure. I kinda hate the cards and sticky notes...I generally work very organically (aka 'wing it') but this story is complex with a lot of timelines and subplots, so for this round of revisions I have to go this route, or I'll lose my marbles. And I don't have many marbles to spare. o.0

    We're getting hit with snow (AGAIN!) as of this hour, so I'm betting this big storm is heading up your way, too. I'm gonna have to build an igloo soon. ;)

    Have a wonderful week.

  7. Congrats on your award and Thanks for nominating me.

    Isn't the quote from Star Wars I or four depending on what year you were born. OBI Wan (old ben) says that to luke?? Yeah, I was a movie buff growing up. LOL.

    Thanks again for the award Marcy!

  8. E. the quote is from star wars so you're half right :)

  9. Congratulations on your award and thank you for mine!

    Has to be a Star Wars quote, though I can't remember which film. LOL.

    I'm running my own competition, if you're interested here is the link - 200 Followers Q & A Competition

  10. Thank you, Marcy. I don't have this one. I love it! The Witch Book...Hmmm...I may have to get that one. Working on two new WIPs. Back to that gypsy kick, remember that one? And I have a new MG started about a 12yr-old apprentice witch that, yeah, isn't all that witchy. She has snark!
