Monday Miscellaneous

I owe Thank Yous to a trio of bloggers who were kind enough to give me a shout out last week.

Gina at Diary of a Writer in Progress nominated me for a Kreativ Blogger Award. She's got a great blog, so stop by and check it out.

As part of the award, you get to learn a few random things about me:

What is your favorite song? Anything by Bon Jovi.
What is your favorite dessert? Cheesecake with graham cracker crust.
What ticks you off? Laziness.
When you're upset, what do you do? Exercise...and sometimes debate. :)
Which is/was your favorite pet? My black lab, Maggie.
Which do you prefer to wear, black or white? Black.
What is your biggest fear? Not being able to leave something behind when I go. Also, tornadoes. :)
What is your attitude mostly? Optimistic! Life is so fun and has endless possibility.
What is perfection? Watching stars from the pier on a warm summer night after being out on the water all day with family.
What is your guilty pleasure? Project Runway. :)

Andrea at The Enchanted Writer also mentioned me as part of the Bookshelf Muse's Random Acts of Kindness. This one means a lot, especially since I've been able to follow Andrea from the early days of her blog. She offers lots of great advice and fun insights.

Finally, Nick at Scattergun Scribblings called me out for the Lucky 7 Meme. I actually posted a snippet a few weeks ago (You can see it here) so I won't double-up, but I wanted to give Nick a mention, too.

And, if you're looking for even more excitement in the blogosphere, check out the, flash fiction part of Cherie Reichs' Flash Fiction Blogfest this week.
