Awards, Apologies and Playlists, oh my....

Several things of note today. First of all I have been awarded the amazing One Lovely Blog award that I've lusted after ever since I saw it on someone elses blog months ago.

The rules of the "one Lovely Blog Award" are as follows:

Accept your award and post it on your blog along with a link to the person who has sent it to you. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered. You must contact the person to let them know that you have chosen them to receive the award.

The lovely Shellie actually awarded it to me first (belated and rather shamefaced thank you) but being in a depressing slump at the time (see this post), I didn't get around to claiming it. Then Nicki Elson was kind enough to nominate me as well and since Thing 1 and Thing 2 hadn't been in one of their more destructive moods, I was in the frame of mind to think about things like pink roses and teacups. Now my choices of those to receive this award go to (drum roll please):

Terra L
Kaitlyn Schulz
Julie Geistfeld
Roxy Haynie
Danyelle Leafty
Vicki Rocho
Talli Roland
Lola Sharp
Krista Lynne Jensen
Maria Savva

If you're someone who has already received it, sorry. If I've miscounted, again sorry. I've been told that I have ADD, so that should work as an umbrella disclaimer for any of my very reasonable failings.

In other news, I finally made a playlist for R.A.G.E. after spending a great deal of my precious writing time scrolling through my iTunes playlist for just the right mood song to get me going. It features but is not limited to songs by Evenescense, Within Temptation and Nightwish. I even threw in a couple of Toby Kieth's patriotic songs.

What songs do you write to?


  1. Thank you for the award! Glad you stopped by my blog and liked it! =D


  2. Thanks for the award! Glad that you've enjoyed my blog and thanks for viewing!

    Oh, I'm into different things depending on the story mood...currently Plumb, Hoobastank, Daughtry, and Nickelback are high on my list.

  3. Thank you! Now I have something to blog about next. Very happy to link back to you!

  4. Thanks for the award and for stopping by!

  5. Thanks for the award! Glad to see you at the blog and hope it continues to stay interesting. :)

  6. Congratulations of your blog award.

  7. Yay! Thank you SO much for the award - much appreciated!

    I'm a weird writer who can't write to music. I need quiet and the sound of the five zillion sirens screeching down the road outside!

  8. You've given me incentive to spruce up my blog ! Anything with roses I crave. I assume the tea cup is for herb tea too! (Stream of consciousness: Maybe I'll make our blog go public and/or get Dad to have his own blog. You never know who may read it about "Dreaming into your children." Pictures I'm sure would be a wonderful addition since I love the pictures I see on the blog- but I have to figure out how to do this- not easy for someone nearing 60. I'll add that to my list)

  9. I really like the lay out of your blog. Intriguing! I think I need to give my place a makeover now. Congratulations on receiving the One Lovely Blog award. It certainly applies here. Thanks also for sharing it with me. You are generous, writer-lady;)

  10. Lovely award and well deserved. I can write to voices talking, but not to music. It's strange, but I can't focus on my own words when music is playing but can when other people are talking on the radio or TV. I would have expected the opposite to happen.
    I saw your comment on the reviews of my books on Secret Writer blog. Please visit my blog and let me know what you think if you read Cut Short and Road Closed.

  11. CONGRATS on your awards!! ✩♡✩

    And THANK YOU for passing one along to me. I'm grateful. :)
    ☼ You've made my day a little brighter.☀

    I'm a bit behind on doing a blog award post, but I shall do one tonight and give you some link love. :)

    Have a wonderful week,

  12. Hey- I found you on Lola's blog. Congrats on both awards.
