Random Acts

I had planned on doing a Scrivener update today, now that I actually get to spend some more time with it.  However, upon opening my in box this morning, it seems the Awesome Folks over at Limebird Writers  *waves enthusiastically, and raises coffee mug in toast* have nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award.  Way cool, and many thanks to the Limies!  🙂 

The Versatile Blogger Award, as far as I can tell, is a ‘play it forward’ type of honor.  It comes with certain responsibilities known as:

The rules….

1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.    *ahem*  Many Thanks, Limebird Writers!  If you haven’t checked out their blog, do so.  They also have a writer’s forum.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.      Ergh.  This is the toughy.  So, I’ll go with –

  1. I don’t like to share things about myself.  LOL
  2. I run with scissors (knives, screw drivers, sticks — yes, I live on the edge).
  3. My dogs are my passion ~ along with creating, wether with words, paint, film or anything else
  4. Don’t *ever* try to make conversation with me if I haven’t had my coffee yet.  (Unless you’re an agent or publisher wanting my work, of course!)
  5. I like made up words that make sense ~ like Friblings: friends who are like siblings
  6. I would be perfectly happy living as a hermit ~ with my dogs, my friblings, my husband, and plenty of wine, of course.
  7. Some people just don’t get my sense of humor.  Go figure.

3. Pass this award along to 15 20 recently discovered blogs you enjoy reading.    Here are my choices, in no particular order, whether they want it or not!:

  1. Raven’s Quill
  2. The Illiterate Scribe
  3. Devin Writes
  4. Coffee & Quill
  5. Autumn Barlow

  5. Thank you KL Schwengel, I graciously accept the award.

    Careful, though. These awards only make me stronger. Give me too many, and I’ll have the power to bring my nefarious schemes to fruition. You have been warned.

    • Just so you know, I’m a big supporter of nefarious schemes (plus, it’s fun to say).

    Congratulations on your award! I found your blog through the Limebirds award announcement, by the way.

    And Re:#6 in your list of seven things about yourself, me too 🙂 Nice to meet a fellow writer!

    • Thanks! I’m glad you found your way here. 🙂 I think I inherited #6 from my mother. She would never leave the house if she didn’t have to. I’m not *quite* that bad. LOL

  11. Congratulations on your award, Kathi! I am a huge fan of your blog.

    And thank you for choosing my blog!.I will endeavor to post more often to be worthy of the honor. 🙂

    You’ve chosen some wonderful blogs, and I look forward to discovering the new blogs on this list you’ve brought to my attention.

    Um, does this mean I’ve got to disclose seven secrets about myself now? Oh, oh. God help us all…

    December 16, 2011 at 10:10 am

    • Thanks, Devin! 🙂

      Well, they don’t have to be secrets. . . although it would probably make for good reading. ;p

    Wow! Kathi! Thanks heaps, this made my day (ok, my week). I love number 5 of your random 7. I was watching a show recently, I think it’s called “Ruby,” and was taken with her word ‘hacky’ – meaning feeling happy and wacky at the same time. I’m so looking forward to following the blogs you chose 🙂

    December 18, 2011 at 5:15 am

    • Hacky . . . hmm . . . I’m liking that. Not a Monday morning mood, to be sure, but I bet I can pull some hackiness over the weekend. LOL
