My mother was an avid reader, always quoting those she read. “They say" had been my anonymous nemesis growing up! All this advice she gleaned from strangers.Often misinformation too. Some anonymous writers, including a few rag newspapers, got more recognition and respect than my actual life experiences and interaction with people. It was very frustrating. So it’s a special honor to have my words finally acknowledged. Thank you so much Deb for such an acclaim. It’s especially thrilling from such a revered writer as you!
In receiving the award you are asked to share three things that you believe make writing good and powerful, then pass the award on to five blogs that exemplify good and powerful writing.
The three ingredients I value are:
Unique Perspectives - which help me to grow and change
Passion- writing from the heart with verve!
Motivating and humorous- the ability to lure the least eager reader with humor and inspiration!
Violette for her ability to motivate people to find their artistic side
Amber for humorously exposing her resilience over a torrent childhood to become an amazing mother.
Tammy for her authentic intimate posts about ALS and her daily struggles.
Rick for his terrific use of humor
Janet for her consistently genuine blog, that exudes humor, love, joy, kindness on a whole consortium of subjects
Often times my writing is actually more cathartic to me than it could be to anyone else. I just wish I could pepper more humor into it on a regular basis. Seems like a small part of my humorous side has faded over the years. Although many life experiences garner constant giggles. Like last week when I went to hem Peppers pants kept threading a needle over and over, only to find as soon as I pulled it through there was no thread in the hole. I burst out laughing when I realized I had only an inch and a half long thread that I was repeatedly trying to thread. Not hard to tell I am a descendant of the monkey!
The wild side
A frivolous rude jester
Goofy youthful harlot
