blogs you need to follow
I am breaking from my traditional Sunday blog posting, to share this.
On June 3, the very dear Teagan Kearney bestowed the prestigious "Versatile Blogger" award upon me. Haha. Well, maybe not prestigious, but it is fun to receive awards.
There are some requirements attached to receiving the award:
1. Thank the giver.
2. Name 15 new recipients.
3. Tell the giver 7 special things about yourself.
First of all, Thanks Teagan!!
I'm not sure how I earned my way onto her list, but I am so grateful I did because I just spent the week culling my own list of 15 (not an easy task). I finally narrowed it down (some I couldn't add because they'd already received the award).
Now I'd like to share with you 15 great writing and reading resources:

For Teagan, 7 random things about me:
1. I am not afraid of the dark.
2. I prefer only to wear sandals or boots.
3. I am an excellent parallel parker.
4. I have a crush on the entire Oakland A's team.
5. I put my kids inside my heart every night before I go to sleep.
6. Stephen King is my mentor (he doesn't know it).
7. I can make up a poem on the spot - about anything.
Thanks, again, Teagan. Happy blogging everyone!

Thanks, Ellen, I'm really chuffed to be selected but I'm afraid Norah Colvin has pipped you to it: http://annegoodwin.weebly.com/annecdotal/on-versatility-awards-a-womans-place-and-camping

How lovely to be included in your list. I adore the idea of you tucking your children into your heart at night. Especially because you juxtaposed that with Stephen King. It means you can work at polar opposites.

So glad you appreciate the irony there. It felt very Stepgen King to me. Just like how she took care if her beloved author in Misery.

I love your list of things about yourself, Norah! Like you, I've adopted King as a mentor, and only wear boots or sneakers, not sandals. I look forward to exploring your list of nominees - and finding new blogs to enjoy. A lovely post!

Thanks, Ellen! The stars must be aligning over my blog as it just received a Liebster, too. Good! That means my mother-in-law is not only one reading it! :-) Thank you so much!

I feel another writing challenge coming on: Compose a piece of flash fiction inspired by the line, "I'm your private dancer."
