"Don't care how, I want it now!" - Veruca Salt

Well-The inevitable has happened!
I've won an award! Cake for everybody!!
It's the Superior Scribbler Award which celebrates writing talent.
Now, I know what you're thinking- "Penny! We didn't need for you to get an award to know you're an out of this world awesome writer!" I know!!!BUT- Debra-at 'Writing It Out'. has deemed it necessary to project my awesomeness to the masses :)
The only way this award could inflate my head up more would be if it came with a complimentary pair of Katy Perry Heart Shaped Shades.
OOPS! Wait! I already have some of those!
I have to thank my cat, Jasmine Macaroon, for inspiring me with cuteness,
Candy and cupcakes for fueling my writing and blogging,
and Katy Perry for producing the soundtrack to my stories and blogging adventures!
I'm pretty sure that Debra would thank Katy too since our mutual love for the flamboyant singer is unabashed and a little...over the line :)
I like to think of me and Debra as these two-
...no....maybe these two...
Well...I think we'd fight over who gets to be the lady on the left,
so these two seem more appropriate :)
Debra-YOU caught me up with ur love of KP, fabulously addictive tib bits of your life as a mystery writer, and your taste in music that seems to be the same flavor as mine...the AWESOME Flavor!!)-Those things are rare-and I'm so glad we are like pen pals through our blogginess :) ((OOH!! And- I saw THIS on Katy Perry's Twitter yesterday!!!:
"headed to V festival here in the UK... It's purty out, gonna b a GREAT show. Gonna watch bands, put on my penny lane... It's been a while."
Who knew she loved my blog name!! :)

Now I gotta follow the award rules:
  1. Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  3. Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this post, which explains The Award.
  4. Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
  5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
Here are my Penny Lane Super Scribbler recipients:

1) Mariah Irvin of 'Constantly Risking Absurdity' - One of the few other people I've known to be as random as me(in a very good way:)-AND she's got links on her blog to excerpts of her amazing writing(think mind reading and total destruction :) AND a book trailer that I find as kewl as a stack of cupcakes!

2) Ali Dubrow of 'The Way I See It'- Cuz the girl can keep me engaged in stories! Really! She wrote this one post about a car accident and it felt like a perfect short story told by a sassy first person narrator! :) AND- She lists The Beatles, Katy Perry, Fiona Apple, and (old school) Britney on her music likes. F*^$ing LOVE that! :)

3) Danyelle Leafty of 'Myth-Takes' - Chick NOT only writes incredible and magical stories that make me want a unicorn, but also discusses her characters - AND tackles problems writers face with their process of creation. I've learned more from her posts and the comments left by other writers than I did in my 4 years of writing seminars in college! AND- The girl is a hell of an artist too! BAM!!

4) Lois Moss of 'Lotus Rising' - Pretty much ALL of my "Need to Read" list came from her-She even adds ratings and a "cleanliness score"! She's also incredibly likable thanks to her sharing her personal writing struggles and steps forward. She really makes me feel...not so alone. She's a poet too-which is the icing on the cupcake for me! :)

5) T. Anne of 'White Platonic Dreams' - She's written, queried, and breathed in the publishing business-- Very few writers share the valuable info she does! She's a rare porthole into the mind of a writer-and you'll want to stay! :)

Now chicks-Go forth and multiply!
