Kreativ Blogger Award

Thank you, Jessica, of Writer's Little Helper fame, for nominating me for this chintzy award:

To honour this award I must do the following 7 things:
-thank Jessica (tick)
-link to her blog (tick)
-copy 'Kreativ Blogger' image to my blog (tick)

-tell you 7 interesting things about me. Oh-kay, this is hard. Just 7? I don't mean that. I mean, aagh, this is a bit painful but here goes:
  • I don't like cheese (you: what??? really??? but why??? and how???)
  • I can play songs on my teeth, just using my teeth, no instruments, just teeth and my mouth opening and closing at various intricate levels to create notes.
  • I like pickled onion sandwiches a lot.
  • I fell down 2 flights of stairs when I was a baby and didn't cry.
  • I would love a kitten. When I lived in Australia they had kittens in pet shops. Many hours were spent staring in pet shop windows.
  • I used to teach English to non-english speakers and on my first day a class of 8 year old Korean children made me cry.
  • I backpacked around Europe on my own when I was 20.

- nominate 7 Kreativ Blogger and link to their blogs:

  • Monda at No Telling - there's something about the way Monda writes, even about the everyday, that pulls me in.
  • Elle is one of my real-life friends. She's an artist whose blog the happy kimono is mostly a place where she showcases the work of other artists and interesting things that have caught her artist's eye. I love Elle's designs - go to her etsy shop to see.
  • Tania Hershman's blog was one of the first writing blogs I found. It's a great mix of useful and interesting. Inspiring too. And Tania, being a very successful short story writer, is a big supporter of the short story form too.
  • Alex writes short stories, makes music, studies for his degree, reads a lot, and gets his work accepted in various places. And he runs Tomlit Magazine.
  • Andrea's blog - a cat of impossible colour - not only the best ever blog name, but an interesting account of someone further along her writing path - Andrea's first novel, The Cry of the Go Away Bird will be published by an imprint of Random House in 2011.
  • Miles - another real life friend - whose commitment to making films and being constantly productive while holding down a non-creative job has been an inspiration to me.

- now go and tell those 7 people that they are Kreativs.

To it!

Hi Teresa,

I don't like cheese either - the reactions I get from people are more extreme, I think, than if I said I was a serial-killer who had five legs and six arms.

Congratulations on Bridport!


Teresa Stenson said...

You're very welcome, Lady Elle x

Hello Valerie - nice to meet you and thanks for the congratulations and support re: a dislike for cheese. You're right, I just prepare myself now, everytime I tell someone new that I don't like cheese, for their disgusted outrage. I also get, "But WHAT do you eat???'. Erm, lots of things...

Dear Author !
It is a pity, that now I can not express - it is compelled to leave. I will return - I will necessarily express the opinion.
