I’ve won something! And it’s green! (which just happens to be my favorite color. ) I have been trying to limber up my blogging brain, so I can feel worthy of accepting this award. I’ve been a wee-bit focused on the recent release of my e-book, The First. (Oh, did I just mention that again?)
First off, I want to thank Madhvi Ramani at An English man in Berlin for nominating me for this award. And I’m thanking her sincerely, not just because the instructions for the award tell me to. Madhvi is one of the best writers I know, and her blog is truly an eclectic mix of observations on literature, art, and life.
Second, as instructed, I will now tell you seven things about myself. I will do my best to be random and amusing:
1. Usually when I try to be random and amusing, I fail. You’ve been warned.
2. In my nightmares, failure is a cyclops made up of blank paper sheets. I can’t always defeat him, but sometimes I get to poke him in the eye with a pen.
3. In my good dreams, I have a writing room painted a lovely, deep forest green, floor to ceiling.
4. Right now, I’m sitting on an orange couch surrounded by orange walls with a red carpet on the floor.
5. I’m learning how to write under adverse conditions.
6. I am an American who lives in Germany, which I alternately love and hate, often depending on the weather and how often I have to say “Mein Deutsch ist nicht so gut.”
7. I love lists, and you’ll find a few of them in my blog, but I often find that the last item is the hardest to write.
Next, I will now nominate a few wonderful bloggers for this award. Because I’m a book nerd their blogs are all book related, but they are all great. Check them out!
Story Addict – Not just about books, this blog features movies, song lyrics, comics — in short anything with a story is fair game here.
Free Literature Stuff – OK this is not so much a blog as a re-blog. But blogger Trev picks out some great stuff. I like it because it has introduced me to many other book blogs. Now if this award will help him fill out his own “about” page…
AB Ciccone Mystery Writer: Ms. Ciccone runs a wonderful writing site, providing some great exercises, insights and inspiration. Plus she has one of the most eye-catching blogs I’ve seen.
And now I’m off to tell them what they’ve won..
