A few days ago, I had a curious comment. It was from another blogger, and she was handing me an award. Can you imagine my surprise and glee?
I’ve seen them floating around out there in the blogosphere. Awards. Mysterious objects of appreciation. And now I have one. Thank you very much to S. J. Wist who passed on The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award to me! Her blog has a guide on how to be a pro geek, book reviews, a comparison between writer’s block and World of Warcraft just to mention a few things.
The instructions, as they were passed on to me, are these:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 deserving blog buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.
And so I shall. I would like to pass on the award to 15 people whose blogs all focus on reading and writing: CMStewart, Cam, Maggie, Alannah Murphy, Christi Corbett, Jami Gold, Catana, N. M. Martinez, Limr, Sonia G Medeiros, Ava Jae, Alice M., Monica-Marie, Liz Hellebuyck, and Erin Brambilla.
They are all unique and interesting and will treat you to either flash fiction, writer quotes, linguistic articles, writing tips, book reviews, or inspiration (or a bit of several things).
Now, seven random facts about me …
1: My cat (Reid) is named after a Scottish protagonist of mine who used it as an alias for a period of time. Like my cat, he is a redhead.
2: The first story I ever wrote for a class in elementary school had a pet spider as its narrator.
3: I once made an amateur film with a friend that we wrote ourselves, played all the parts in, and filmed.
4: I know most of my protagonists’ shoe sizes.
5: I practically never watch the telly, but I do keep up with two tv series: Doctor Who and Supernatural.
6: I honestly think that strawberries with milk, sugar and a wee bit of Jack Daniel’s are delicious.
7: I have co-written and illustrated a non-fiction book that was published in my country under a different name.
Also, thank you for reading my blog. Or stumbling upon it by accident and running away again, but I like to think that some of you read it on purpose.
