“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:  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: – Sweatpants and Superfoods – Through His Own – The First Gates – About Zen – Rusty Truck – Mothergrogan – The Flores Factor
