Note: Don't forget to celebrate with me on reaching 50 followers, and enter my critique giveaway, HERE, if you haven't already. Deadline is December 7, 2010 at midnight PST.
WOW! Maria over at Reading, Writing, Romance has awarded me a Versatile Blogger Award. Not only that, a few days later, before I could even write up a post, Lindsey at Dangerous With a Pen awarded me the very same award! Thanks so much, both of you. Click to visit their lovely sites.
The writerly community is so fun and supportive. I love it!
As per the (slightly tweaked) rules, I will now list 7 new things about myself and then pass the award on to 7 deserving others.
7 THINGS ABOUT ME: Favorites
1. My favorite ice creams are praline pecan and blackberry cheesecake. My hubby and I tried the latter at a little gift store in Bandon this summer, on the Oregon coast. Marvelous stuff.
2. My favorite colors are blue-green and sea-foam green. They remind me of the huge box of crayons I colored with at my grandma's house when she used to babysit me, my brother, and my sister. Fond childhood memories!
3. My favorite car to drive is a Toyota. Ok, so I haven't driven much else, but I still like 'em. My first car (in 1982) was a 1968 Volkswagon station wagon. No comparison.
4. My favorite magical creatures are dragons and mermaids. When I was little, before I went to sleep, I would make up mermaid stories in my head, starring yours truly as the mermaid. Someday, I'm gonna write a mermaid story; I have the germ-seeds for it already. It's called THE GRASSY SEA. Although they won't exactly be traditional mermaids…stay tuned. I'm busy with my post-apocalyptic WIP right now.
5. My favorite music is rock, bluegrass, opera, Christian, pop, new age, classical (especially Chopin), folk, old country, etc. Get it? I have no favorite and I'm extremely eclectic in my music tastes. Depends on my mood.
6. My favorite perfumes are honeysuckle, lilac, and lily of the valley.
7. My favorite candy is Reese's peanut butter cups.
