Just now getting around to checking out some of the OWFI blogs. Partly because I'm lazy, and do other things when I'm online, and partly because I have really honestly been writing. That said, I love your blog, and think it's a must for all writers in all fields.

Another reason to check out your blog? You've been tagged. for the Roar for Powerful Words award. Here’s what it’s about:
1. Link back to the person who tagged you.
2.List three things that you believe are necessary to make writing good and powerful.
3.Tag five others and comment at their blog informing them that they’ve been tagged with this award.

That's it, pretty easy. I look forward to reading your ideas.:)
