Premio Dardos Award – For Before Sundown

Premio Dardos Award

What a delightful surprise and honor to receive this nomination for the Premio Dardos Award from David Brian Paley at Vancouver Visions http://vancouvervisons.com – an award that recognizes cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values in the form of creative and original writing. Visit Vancouver Visions and enjoy David’s writing. He’s working on a novel, and a couple of long reads. And of course there’s his poetry! Like David I had stopped accepting awards in favor of spending more time writing. But, I’d accept any award that had to do with writing itself and promoted other writers in turn. So, this is my chance to enjoy this award, and to nominate 15 fellow bloggers that I admire for their writing ability. A good feature of this award is that it doesn’t require answering questions or making up questions, and there’s no article that must be written upon acceptance. Plus it has a very cool logo, an old manual typewriter with a scroll of words streaming from it. I’d like that magic stream of words to end up on my computer screen!

Premio Dardos Award Rules

I must admit, it was difficult to narrow it down to 15 amazing blogger friends for this award. And of course some that I’d like on the list have declared award-free zones. So, for my nominees, it’s your choice to accept or not. I’ll be happy if you do, and understand if you don’t. I’ll continue to follow and love your writing anyway!

    • Thank you, Timothy! On your nomination write-up I should have included that you haven’t missed a day of blogging since July10, 2010! Impressive! I look forward to reading your one post a day with awesome, original photographs. Christine

      • Timothy, that’s dedication! You need a Star Award for that! I fall so below the bar on consistent blogging! But, then I’m writing books and need to focus on the WIPs. Haven’t figured out how to do both and get up to a higher standard yet. Christine

      • I think it’s much more difficult for writers. I can simply put and photo and say nothing, or I can add a bunch of verbiage depending on how I feel and time. But if I had to write something meaningful everyday, forget it. 😉

      • OK…let’s just say a picture says a thousand words, so you don’t have to write very much! That’s the beauty of showcasing photographs. Your talent is in the photographs and I just want to know what I’m looking at (a catchy title) and a few personal words! You’ve got that covered. Believe me there’s just too much blah…blah…blah in a lot of the posts out there! Keep clicking and posting! Christine

    • J.Gi, thank you so much! That would be great. After this one and the one I just finished, Tour Through Blogland, I’m really going to have to stop accepting. Even though the focus is on writing, it takes a lot of time to put the work together. And those 3 books are waiting…waiting…Christine

    That’s a wonderful post you’ve written here, and I thank you for the much more than kind mention that you gave me. I apologize for the amount of time it took for me to answer this, but it should give you some idea just how backed up my email is. And then because of the way that I answer my email, some of my newer mail gets answered before the previous, and it doesn’t take long before I’ve got the whole thing messed up. Lol. But I thank you again, and congratulate you on the award, I was really happy to be able to nominate you for it, both you and your site are very deserving of it. So a good day, keep up the great writing, and will read you some more later.
