Real Neat Blog Award



I have been nominated for several awards by wonderful bloggers, and I have been remiss in attending to those nominations.  To those who named me, I apologize in my delay. I will respond to each, one a day.

I want to thank Laura for nominating me for this award. Laura is a kind, thoughtful, and intelligent person who writes a writes a creative, interesting, and friendly blog.

The rules of this award are:

1. Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.

2. Answer the seven questions your nominator provided.

3. Nominate seven other bloggers, and notify them of their nomination.

4. Create seven questions for your nominees.

My Questions To Answer:

1.) What is under my bed?

Hmmmmm….I have to check.  Definitely some dust bunnies as well as books.

2.) What is something you want to write about, but find it outside your comfort zone?

Well, I am comfortable with anything I want to write about, because I love exploring new ideas, but I am very interested in new theories in quantum physics (no joke), and I have no math to support my interest. So, it would be very uniformed and general writing.

3.) What’s the craziest food I have tried?

I once tried to eat a stuffed habanero chili pepper at a party.  I loved hot food, especially in those days, but that was a huge mistake. I broke into a sweat, and it was like I had a fire inside me.  If I had started breathing fire like a dragon, it would not have surprised me.

4.) Would I travel around in space if it were possible?

As much as I like the idea and love the show Star Trek, I also hate to fly, so I would have to decline.

5.) Do you keep a journal?  If so, is it more like a dear diary, or just random thoughts here and there?

I do keep a journal, and it is more of a journal about writing than a day to day diary. I am inconsistent with the entries, but I value having it and using it.

6.) What’s my favorite musical instrument and why? This question is difficult, because I love many kinds of music.  If I had to choose, it would probably be the Scottish Bagpipes, because I love the unusual and powerful sound they make.

7.) What is your passion?

I have two: writing and teaching.

My Nominees:



Herminia Chow

Fraser Sherman

A Not So Jaded Life


Mitch Teemley

My Seven Questions For My Nominees:

1.) What is the last book you read?

2.) What is the first book you remember reading?

3.) What is your favorite season of the year?

4.) Do you prefer to use a pen and paper or computer to write?

5.) Are you a morning or a night person?

6.) Would you rather go out to see a movie or watch it at home?

7.) What is your favorite kind of breakfast?

And once again, thank you to Laura for nominating me for this award.

  1. Congrats on the award, and those were great answers. I especially loved the one about the Scottish bagpipes. I wouldn’t have even thought of that instrument, but it is also one of my favorites. Happy New Year!
