My Dear Readers,
I was not going to post today. However, I am humbled beyond words that my poem, If I say I love you, is in the running for 2020 Publication of the Year at Spillwords Press. To everyone who has supported me in my writing journey, my deepest thanks. May your days be filled with love and success. May you be inspired and may life shower you with happiness.
The voting for Spillwords Press annual awards is now open. Congratulations to all nominees. All of them are wonderful writers. They deserve plenty of recognition.
My poem, If I say I love you by Gabriela M, is under the rubric Publication of the Year (Poetic).
If you do not have a Spillwords account, you can vote with your FB or Twitter account. When you click on the poem, a Spillwords window will open. You will be asked to enter your username and your password. Ignore that and click on the FB or Twitter icon to vote.
Update: One of my followers pointed out that there is actually a WP voting option too. You can click on the WP icon, instead of FB or Twitter, and vote with WP if you prefer.
Here is the link where you can vote. Voting is open till January 30.
Last February I was awarded Author of the Year at Spillwords Press. I told my followers one thing that will always be true: my award is as much yours as it is mine.
If you wish to read my 2019 Author of the Year Spillwords interview you can read it here.
If you wish to (re)read my poem, If I say I love you, can do it here.
Love to everyone

Jen, my dear, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am so grateful for your support. It has been too long. Everything ok?
You’re welcome G.
Had to stop for awhile. Everything seemed to come to a raging boil. A negative attitude was overtaking me. I gave myself some time to relax and ignore the news. Feeling a little better now.
Are you ok?
Jen, I am glad you feel better. I thought about you many times. I think I am ok, thank you for asking. Plenty of work and a strained ankle that is healing.
Please, take good care of you.
I’m glad to hear your ankle is healing. I’ve been in the background for awhile but I had to vote for you. You know I’m usually not good at commenting. But you make me smile BIG HUGS!!! xoxoxo

Diana, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You always touch my heart.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Congratulations Gabriella and of course I will. I keep getting kicked out. How do I do it on FB?
Oh, Cindy, you are so sweet. First you can vote with WP if you want. One of my followers pointed that out. By the FB and the Twitter icon there is a WP icon too. Click on Vote, and WP and you can do it immediately. If you want to do it with FB click on vote and then log in with FB.
If I remember correctly it goes like this:
– click on the person you want to vote for
– log in with FB or stay on WP (the easiest option)
– your vote should register.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Have a beautiful evening
You are so welcome and thanks so much for going throught that whole thing. I’ll do tonight.. getting ready to teach yoga. hugs and blessings. ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you Cindy. Have a great time teaching.
Thanks G.. it as a great class. ❤️

I get this message when you try to vote using the wordpress link. ‘Hybridauth config does not exist on the given path.’
Oh, thank you from the bottom of my heart for trying. I don’t know what that is. Perhaps this works better in your own browser. https://spillwords.com/vote/
Enjoy the rest of your week and thank you again.
You are a fabulous. Poet.😊
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words 🌹
Thank you so much 🌹
Sorry, Gabriela, i tried to vote but technical difficulties have occurred. I’ll try again later. Congratulations, I hope you win!
Thank you so much Mark. I really appreciate you trying. It means a lot.
I won’t give up. I live in a rural area and the internet connecting can be mediocre, at times.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Mark. Your support means the world to me. Below please find the original link that you can paste in your browser. While you can vote with FB, Twitter, and WP, you may consider opening a Spillwords account. It’s easy and you can summit fiction or non-fiction to them if you wish. You may want to take a minute and explore their site.
Thank you again.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Congratulations…you truly deserve this…hope for the best..
Thank you so much. It means a lot to me 🌹🌹🌹🌹
