OEBooks Receives the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

I was just laughing with someone today about how you’d think with the way technology was first touted it would be able to do all that, and then some. Turns out that some technologies still can’t supercede human technology, like that voice command some companies use to help save on hiring a real person to answer calls. Once I coughed into the phone while going through the teleprompts, and sneezed another time, (what we happened to be laughing about), and the system disconnected because the cough, sneeze, and ‘excuse me’ weren’t acceptable responses. Not all automation is efficiently replacing what used to work just fine. But then there are other things about technology that, quite frankly, just can’t be beat.

What are the chances I’d have ever been able to connect with book bloggers, often thousands of miles away, and be honored with the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Thanks Kathy, @Books Kids Like.

Here are the rules for being tagged with the Irresistible reward. 1) Thank and link to the person who nominated you. 2) Share seven random facts about yourself. 3) Pass the award along to 15 deserving blog buddies. 4) Contact those buddies to congratulate them. (Will do this weekend).

Seven ‘more’ Random Things About me.

1. Believe it or not, I am a very private person.
2. I love to dance, though I rarely dance anymore.
3. My first awareness of a U.S. President was Richard M. Nixon.
4. Sports I enjoyed most; swimming, track, table tennis, and tennis.
5. Favorite theme park rides; the merry-go-round and all the water rides!
6. I lost seven pounds! Yae! I am now at my satisfied weight!! Double Yae!
7. ...and Okay, so here’s a real nugget. In the 80’s, after reading (or hearing) somewhere about making a list of ‘big picture’ high priority things I’d most want to achieve, I made a list. I wrote down 10 things, impossible stuff, things that had anyone in that day read the list they would have laughed, “yeah, right!” I even knew I was dreaming. As instructed I sealed the list, put it in a safe-box, and about ten years ago today I finally reread the list. Amazing. Seven of the ten items have been accomplished!

Genuine Women Rock!

Funny thing about genuine women is they rarely say much when first meeting one. Oh, she’ll look me up and down, sizing me up I’m guessing, taking in most of what she thinks she sees before ever imparting any real piece of her mind. Gossip is just not her thing; mines neither, which is why when she unleashes one of them pearls of wisdom, Baby Look Out, I know this is a Woman Who Rocks!
Genuine Women are as Compassionate as Passionate

Doesn’t mean she won’t make mistakes, do wrong, be wrong, get mad and have those bad days. We all have our hard days, ugly ways. Name a human who doesn't. And still, turning the dial back upbeat, I know one-hundred-ten percent a genuine woman’s words are not cheap.

A Toast to the Writing Resolution Blog Hop Ball

I've been waiting to attend this ball all year, and now here it is…the perfect spot to slip in another Top Ten list, and call it my writing resolutions.
Before …oh boy…I get started, please know that Meg Waite-Clayton at 1stbooks is hosting the blogger ball. All the rules can be found (and followed) by clicking the icon pic in my caption, which also should be your caption as well. But before you get to clicking, here are my writing resolutions going into the New Year.

SHEWRITES Blogger's Ball #7 – YipYip HOORaY!!!

I think Meg Waite Clayton, who takes time out of her very literate busy schedule to host this ball, must really see me over here toggling this and that. Seems like it never fails, just when I'm about to drop a ball, up pops Meg hosting a ball. Of course, and please know, I don't really believe this. I already know the blogger balls come highly requested by SHEWRITERS, but can't deny that I, too, love the timing of each one thrown.
With over $#!$# projects going, not inclusive of other dependabilities begging my attention, I tried to avoid putting up the old 'Away on Vacation' notice. And rather than explain any more of that here, let me jump right into blasting this small pep of encouragement for those steeped in the writing process, and to writers everywhere.
If you're starting to hear a little whining about the time you spend writing, and blogging, to this is what I have to say. "Write on Writers." To my family, and perhaps to those who've been…
