Winners of the 2009 Golden Coffee Cup.

Hi, folks, thank you for hanging out! Really we are all winners.:) Thanks to my son Jesse Blaisdell for creating our nifty award.

Still, the winners of the real live coffee are as follows:

Hooray for the Golden Coffee Cup and for Molly B!

I finished the first third of revision for Bound By Three -- now for the rest. Took a while to get into the swing of this revision but now it's rolling. The Golden Coffee Cup got me through some bleak days so Thank You! Miss Molly B! And thanks to all the coffee cuppers who posted in the blog or left comments. They helped too.

I birthed my novel this month, which was my goal. I had carried the story around in my brain for years and this month it came out. (talk about a long pregnancy ... and a month long labor. ouch.)

Now it can stand on its own baby legs. (Until I knock it unmercifully to the ground with the editing hammer.) Yee haw. Thank you, Molly!

Laurie Thompson said...
Ha! I guess I should've gone back to see what my original goals were before the last day, since it seems I changed them mid-month without realizing it! ;) Either way, I'm not quite finished in time, but I made so much progress that I STILL feel like a winner, and I know exactly what still needs to be done so I have a clear plan for finishing ALL the goals before the holidays. Thanks for the much-needed incentive AND inspiration, Molly!

Michèle Griskey said...

Yes, I completed my work-in-progress. I thought I would be done early in the month, but I finally finished yesterday. Oh well, at least I finished it before the deadline.

Thank you for a great month Molly and everyone.
And here's to a cup of coffee and a new writing project. :)

Send your address to me at molly@mollyblaisdell.com and I will send your card good for a cup of piping hot java!

If you want me to email the Award picture, I will, but you can cut and paste it if you want. :)

My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that 'achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others, and that's nice, too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success. Helen Hayes

Thanks Molly for a Great Coffee Cup Month.

And I loved the quotes too. I used one from from the Golden Coffee Cup to conclude my speech on the ALAN panel before hundreds of English teachers!

Yay for the winners! It's great to be rubbing shoulders with all of you for the long haul!

Helen Landalf said...

Oops...I forgot to check in yesterday. I exceeded my goal of working on my novel 6 hours a week, and I'm now about a quarter of the way through my first draft.
Sorry for the late posting, and congratulations to the winners!

Snap! Snap! Snap! Fantastic, Helen. It's awesome to hear from you. I'm so glad you made it a quarter a way through your first draft. That's such good news.

All best,

Molly Blaisdell

Laurie Thompson said...

What!? I didn’t even “win”! How can I get real coffee out of the deal?

Seriously, if you all want to disqualify me for being a loser, I can totally take it. :)

Hey, Laurie, the Golden Coffee Cup does not require you to complete your goal. The Golden Coffee Cup is a month of goal setting and achievement. You made real progress. You have clear idea of your goal. You checked in at the beginning. You checked in at the end. You win. All decisions are final. So that’s it.

Yay for you! Good luck as you move forward.
