I blog mostly for my own amusement, so it was both a pleasant surprise and an honor to be nominated by the Limebirds.
With this nomination comes responsibility, and by accepting the award, I must:
- Thank and Linkback to my nominator (in my case, the Limebirds).
- Post the award on my site.
- Pass this award on to (nominate) 6 or 7 (or more; or fewer) bloggers whom I consider worthy.
- Tell folks 10 things about myself, that they might not already know.
With 1 and 2 taken care of, let’s get to my nominees. It’s hard to keep up with so many blogs, but these are ones I always make time to read:
- Castelsarrasin, whose fiction and real-life stories always inspire.
- Lucid Gypsy, where I can always find a photo, fiction, or travelogue to make me smile.
- Sjbwriting, where remembering what it’s like to be a child helps give insight into what can make us better adults.
- Conversing with Novels, where Ottabelle doesn’t just show us pieces of her work, but pieces of herself, too.
- Soul and Sweet Tea, whose work both on the page and off it reminds me to think first about the world and people around me before myself.
- And, of course, thespooneytoaster, who’s been my online pal for many years now, and who’s willing to ask questions even I can’t stomach, sometimes.
Check out these beautiful bloggers when you get the chance!
Now, for those facts….
- I first learned to write – my name, followed by stories – from my big sister…whose opinion still matters to me.
- I love writing romance stories…but I don’t like reading romance novels. Go figure.
- I enjoy being a pinup model, on occasion (like in the photo above)!
- I’ve been reading comic books for most of my life, and have been playing videogames for almost as long.
- I have the most mock-able degree in the world: English Literature major, with a Classics minor. (But I got to read The Iliad in the original Greek!)
- I lovesurfing, even though I’m not very good at it. (I keep getting on that board, though!)
- My very first published work was a short story called “A Day in the Life,” based loosely on a Killraven story about a twenty-four hour man.
- My second published work was a science fiction short-comic collaboration with my friend Pete Stathis, called “Sins of the Fathers.”
- Most of my heroes/heroines have daddy issues…though I maintain a very good relationship with my own father. (Maybe it’s from growing up with all those Disney princesses.)
- I don’t believe in failure. Only in never trying.
Thanks again to the Limebirds for the nomination, and I hope those of you who have been nominated keep this trend going!
