I have been remiss in not posting about the Kreativ Blogger Award I received from Debra Kristi earlier this year. I’ve been focused on my novel revisions and my family, and I’m finally rejoining the world.
It so happens that Valerie Lawson recently nominated me for the same award, so I figured it was high time to accept.
Thank you so very much to Debra and Valerie! Here are the Kreativ Blogger Award rules:
- Thank the blogger who gave you the award and provide a link.
- List seven interesting things about yourself.
- Nominate seven other bloggers, provide links, and let them know!
Now that I’ve done number one, here I go with number two:
- I love keeping things. Especially books. But I’m trying to weed out some things now, including getting rid of my name-brand work wardrobe from when I lived on the East Coast.
- I wrote my first “book” in fourth grade. It was called “The Girl Who Ran Away.” My protagonist, whose name escapes me at the moment, travels to Alaska because her teacher didn’t like the cupcakes she brought to class.
- My mom’s best friend decided to illustrate “The Girl Who Ran Away,” which prompted me to write more books in the series.
- I’m still in touch with my kindergarten teacher.
- My daughter wants to have my kindergarten teacher as her kindergarten teacher next year. I tried to explain about retirement. “My mom’s retired!” she announced to her friend later that week.
- I am not retired.
- I’m a stay-at-home mom who, when returning to the workforce, will need to buy some new clothes.
And now, to pass the award on to seven recipients.
- There are no rules, as far as I can see, about how to choose a Kreativ Blogger recipient, but the first blog I think of when it comes to creativity is My Silly Little Life. It’s full of exciting art and learning projects for kiddos, and I never fail to find inspiration there. If you’re a parent of young children, bookmark it ASAP!
- Words and Music is also super creative. Susan writes concert recaps and discusses writing and books.
- Natasha Guadelupe discusses novel writing–my favorite subject!–at her blog, My Novel Writing Adventures & Other Words.
- Angela Christine Archer is another writing blogger I recently discovered. Her craft posts are personal and insightful.
- At A Line at a Time, which is such a great blog title, Sarah Baughman writes about living in Germany, parenting and writing.
- Ginger Calem runs a wonderful weekly feature called “WritersButt Wednesday.”
- Aly Hughes discusses her “experiences with and theories on writing” at the aptly titled and thought-provoking Aly Hughes Writes.
