Writing community Badges I've Earned

To earn the Red Pen badge, I devoted more than 10 hours of my time editing my own work in a given month.

To earn this badge, I was chosen as one of the winner's of the 365k group's Friday challenge "Gender Swap," where I had to describe what my MC would be like if she were a male.

To earn the critique badge, I devoted more than 10 hours of my time providing critiques for other writers in a given month.

To earn this badge, I participated in a weekly challenge through the 365K Club. My contribution was voted as one of the top ones for listing some of my characters' quirky traits.

My e-book The Eyes That Moved was selected for inclusion in the Indie Pennsylvania collection on Self-e.

To earn the Ignoring the Siren's Call badge, my comment was voted as one of the most creative ways to procrastinate on my writing projects. All of us writers get burnt out from time to time; I'm no exception!
