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.
