“Tell Me About Yourself” award

So, tell me about yourself!

I’d like to thank Postcard Fiction for presenting me with the “Tell Me About Yourself” award.   I strongly encourage  you take a look at her blog.  She sums up her blog as follows:

A picture says 1000 words…

or in this case 50.  Welcome to Postcard Fiction, a spot for literary exploration in fifty words or less. Inspired by photographs, motivated by passion, I am experimenting with poetic prose of extreme brevity.  Posted stories are works in progress so please comment or critique.

Postcard Fiction can be found at:  http://postcardfiction.com/  Once again, thank you very much, Postcard Fiction.  🙂

Here are the simple and easy-to-follow rules.

1. Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog.

2. Tell the world 7 things about yourself that you have not shared, yet.

3. Nominate 7 fellow bloggers and let them know

Okay, so here goes it:

1.  I started taking piano lessons at age six.

2.  By the time I left elementary school, I had written a short novel, and many children’s poems.  My children’s poems were typed by the Vice-Principal, placed in a duotang and given a library card in the school library.

3.  In high school, I played first violin in the school’s stage orchestra.

4.  My very first job was working in a stock brokerage.

5.  I enjoyed reading, Screenwriting From The Soul by Richard Krevolin.

6.   I love listening to jazz and blues.

7.   For inspiration, I love working on Charles Bernstein’s writing experiments.

Now . . . the 7 blogs that I am nominating because I enjoy visiting them, are:

red bricks falling

follow the errors

the clinks, the claps

the jingles of girls

in spaghetti straps

over to the clothing factories

where well-patterned rats labor

and then go home

up to the mind’s attic

where tongues depress

and ruins rise

purging themselves

of truths and lies

out onto

polished vindicated fields of ideas

raw curtains

hanging in large windows

red bricks falling
