creative writer blogger award

I just got another blogger award, this time a

Creative Writer Blogger Award

from Creative Writer A F Stewart. (Many thanks!)

Apparently, as a recipient I have to tell seven facts, all lies and one truth (or all truth and one lie), leaving my readers (if any) to guess which is which. Afterwards I have to send said readers chasing links to seven more creative writers. So, here goes...

My Creative Facts:

  1. My siblings include a Catholic priest, a retired schoolteacher, an astronaut, a secret agent, a mother of ten, a librarian, and an alien.
  2. My past and present pets have included several goldfish, a cat that my Mum said ran away to live on a farm, a dog that escaped through a hole in the fence, a goat, a pony, a spider and an invisible unicorn.
  3. My favorite pastimes as a child included reading, writing, travelling in space, saving the world, dancing, building with Legos, and controlling a very large family of imaginary children.
  4. My favorite music includes classics, classic rock, indie, rap, metal, Beatles, and country.
  5. My favorite books include horror, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, literary, mystery and adventure.
  6. My favorite subjects in school included math, English, latin, French, history, religion and physics.
  7. My favorite foods include bread, cake, pastry, pie, pancakes, scones and toasted tea-cakes.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Can't believe you're a headbanger, Sheila. I think #4 is a lie >:)
