Very Inspiring!

InspiringI am grateful to Gemini (January 18) and Ol’Big Jim (January 30) for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I must say to be nominated twice in a month by two very talented friends must be more than I deserve… Gemini (@geminiswords) is indeed a source of inspiration for many of us, writing poetry in a genre where the internal soul matters so much: her posts are a pleasure to read, and I fully approve of Joseph‘s (@JMcNamara4) nominating Gemini – he is of course one of the few masters of the genre…

Ol’ Big Jim (@olbigjim) is a published author and a pillar of strength in supporting his rich and varied community. I owe to Jim – who is far more experienced than me in many respects – for introducing me to the enchanted world of blogging awards, and in so doing to a wealth of great writers and bloggers.

My obligations under the award’s rules are:

  • Display the award logo on your blog
  • Link back to the person who nominated you
  • State 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers for this award and link to them
  • Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

Seven things?

  1. This writer in learning is a slow reader
  2. I start editing, changing, fiddling as soon as anything new is written
  3. Sometimes I lose work as I forget to back up when writing non-stop
  4. Characters I create talk to me, awake or asleep, they are very obtrusive
  5. The “tale of intimacy and loss” is progressing in a very irregular manner, some weeks being very productive (and inspired!) and other times just a waste of effort
  6. The “creative” experiment so far consists of four blogs: Glass & Paper (writing and short fiction), Photos, The Magnum Opus, “politics” and travel, and more pictures.
  7. There is also a (not so) secret page for special stories…
