Sisters of the Quill Award

After Tuesday's post about Forgotten English, many commented that they liked or loved the modified term I came up with: "Sisters of the Quill." One person wrote it gave her the shivers.

I really like the term, too. In fact, after reading the comments I decided to create a Sisters of the Quill Award. I played around with Clip Art and Power Point, and with some help from my hubby, I came up with the logo on the left.

The very first "Sisters of the Quill Award" goes to the eight people who commented about my post on Tuesday.

As a recipient of this award, you have been deemed a quill-driver, a writer, a scribe, a schrivener, an author worthy of recognition. You are welcome to share this award with deserving writer friends. All I ask is you mention you received the Sisters of the Quill Award from Donna at Donna's Book Pub.

Without further ado, I'm awarding the First Generation Sisters of the Quill Award to the following bloggers and quill-driving writers:


Cathy C. Hall

Linda O'Connell

Mary Horner

K9 Friend



Clara Gillow-Clark

Congratulations, Sisters of the Quill. Hope you enjoy your award, and don't forget to write!



  1. Cool award. Congratulations to the very first recipients ever!

  2. Awesome, Donna! I would NEVER think to create my own award and logo, too! Congrats to you! And congrats to the winners!!

  3. Ahh, Donna, I am deeply touched. Thank you! I iwll repost when I get home this evening.

  4. Hi Carol,

    Hi Becky,
    Thanks. It was fun creating it.

    Hi Linda,
    You're welcome. HOPE you have fun this evening. See you tomorrow.

    Hugs to all,

  5. Thank You! That is a nice logo and thought. I don't usually do awards and tags, but I will display this on my site and link it back to you. I think it is very fitting for any woman writer and we should all be proud to be Sisters of the Quill! That would be a good name for a woman's writing and critique group! If I ever form one, could I borrow the title?

  6. I agree with Janet. I think it would be a great name for a writing group.

    Thanks for the award. Hopefully I'll be able to do lots of quill driving soon, surrounded by the support of the sisterhood...

  7. Great idea, Donna! And thanks for bestowing this award on us. It definitely does have a nice ring to it!


  8. What a cool surprise!!! The logo is perfect, and I am so excited to be a genuine Sister of the Quill. Thanks so much for the grand honor! ~shiver shiver!!!~

  9. Oooooh! An award! And such a good one! Thanks so much, Donna!
