Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you, thank you , thank you to Roberta Gordon, author of  “Gemini Witching: Elements 101“.   It is flattering beyond words when a fellow writer finds one’s work worthy of awarding recognition.   One of the great joys of blogging is the vast network of amazing creatives who inspire, encourage, and share the journey that is our craft.  I feel lucky to have found Roberta on this same path.  One click on Roberta’s name above and you will be magically transported to her realm for a visit with this debut author.

The rules of this round of recognitions are as follows:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them.   Check.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself                                                    Check.
  3. Nominate 15 (or so) other bloggers you admire.                        Check.

Here are a few things about me:

  1. I have more notebooks than any one person should ever own.
  2. No matter where I move (and I move a lot), I end up with AWESOME neighbors.  It’s some sort of phenomenon for which I am very grateful.
  3. I cannot be part of a writing critique group because I will never stop editing my own first chapters.
  4. I am usually barefoot or in flip flops.
  5. I like the smell of mesquite.
  6. I throw a great party.
  7. When I’m outlining a story I only write with a black pen or a REALLY sharp pencil.  That’s right, I’m talking take an eye out sharp.

Part three of the blog award asks that I nominate some fellow bloggers that I admire.  It’s hard to pare it down to a handful as there are so many incredible bloggers and I am finding more each day.  To be honest, many days it is a struggle not to get lost in reading all of the other blogs instead of working on my own projects.   My read list is growing faster than Santa’s naughty vs. nice checklist.

Some of these bloggers are fellow writers, photographers, business bloggers, and cartoonists. A few are those brave souls who “diary blog”,  putting their innermost thoughts and dreams out there into the blogosphere.   All are great people who share some part of themselves with the rest of us.

And now for (a sampling of) the blogs that I admire:

H is for Huitain

 Day 8 of the Blogging From A to Z Challenge April 2012 – H

Hurried huntsmen hasten to hunt

Herding hapless hares towards home

Happy to have horses up front

High hills and hidden hollows to roam

Heading house bound into the gloam

Hasten towards heartwarming blaze

Hypnagogic heat forms a dome

Heavy heads nod off in a haze

(Helpful Hint: huitain = group of eight lines of verse with eight syllables per line with a rhyming scheme to adhere to)

F is for Fall-behind Friday

Day 6 of the Blogging From A to Z challenge April 2012 – F

First: Forgiveness please from my fans, followers, and fellow A-Z Challengers as Friday fell to a fury of fast footed feral fiends (aka my children). In my frenzy to facilitate my fiction I forgetfully pressed “Safe Draft” instead of “Publish” so Friday’s blog was flubbed.

Fiction finds fun in farce and fantasy so for Friday’s feature I forged a fable.

Fearless was our fine frog Fred. He would frolic and fuss from the first few rays of the fiery sun. He’d then fill his nights with fanciful fun. Forever forgetting to find himself food, he would follow the fireflies flickering by fields of feathered ferns.

Farley the fawn feared for Fred’s flaw and said, “Fall is fast finishing and frost will be here forthwith. Foolish folly will find you a famished fellow.”

Forgoing this foretelling advice he forged into the foliage, fixated on a fine fast fox.

Flaunter of funky fortune to the finish”, a feeble flounder said.

Finally fell the freeze, facilitating snow falling in folds over frontiers. Fellow forest foragers found their faithful, fortuitous finding of feasts would keep them fit and fat.

Farther out in the fields a famished, fickle frog flailed. Fred’s feet were frozen fast to a fence for he flippantly failed to follow his friends.

PLEASE NOTE: This is my original material so… Forgery is a felony and for finding you fiddling with my fiction I will forever feel you are a feces (plus I’ll tell your Mom).

Farewell!
