Creative Chaos Award

I would like to thank Renee (Positive Boomer) at:

http://positiveboomer.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for this award.  Thank you, Renee!  Forty years of marriage–that’s really something to be proud of.   Congratulations to both of you.

This award has 4 tasks for me to do.

First Task: Three weird things I do: Okay.   Let me see . . .

1.  No one comes over until I’ve quickly tidied up–applies to everyone.

2.  A few years back I got in a bad habit of thinking out loud, sometimes.  I’ve pretty much stopped that now.

3.  Peanut butter on vanilla ice cream.

Second Task: You must tell why you look at the “glass half full” scenario and ask “what? No coffee?”

Answer:  That’s easy!  I’m a Libra –  I’m optimistic by nature.

Third Task: You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cell phone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your underpants and why?

Answer:  I take the subway, bus or walk most of the time, so I’m going to excuse myself from this one.  Ha.  As for the color of my umbrella, lol . . . black.

Fourth Task: Nominate 5 people who recently followed your blog.

Gee . . . I guess I’m done now.  Copying and pasting does wonders for speeding up the writing process!

Best regards,

Tell Me About Yourself Award

Tell Me About Yourself Award

Today, jmmcdowell at:  http://jmmcdowell.com/ presented me with the “Tell Me About Yourself Award.  Jmmcdowell  is an archaeologist who also writes novels.  I encourage you all to visit her blog.

This award appeals to me because it is a wonderful way to discover new blogs and to gain new readers.  It also gives me the opportunity to share a few things about myself that my readers and readers-to-be may not know.

There are only a few simple rules:

1.  Thank the person that nominated you (hello) and provide a link back to their blog.

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

3.  Nominate 7 fellow bloggers and let them know.

Seven things about me…

1.  My primary goal is to become a successful screenwriter.

2. I have a Music Myspace Page at www.myspace.com/maryannblinkhorn where you can listen to some original songs that I wrote a few years ago.  I am not singing.  I wrote the music and lyrics and hired the singers.

3.  I love writing free-style poetry.  I do it for self-expression, and I do it for the love of it.

4.  The blogs on WordPress that interest me the most, are centered around the following topics:  screenwriting tips, writing tips, writing and poetry, photography–industrial, nature, black and white,  art, quotes, films and filmmaking, recipes, music and haikus.

5.  Rather than having favorite colors, I have favorite color combinations–purple and green, yellow and gray, and so on…

6. I hate wearing hats in the wintertime.

7.  My morning coffee is a must.

Here are the seven blogs that I am nominating.  Please stop by and visit them.
