OEBooks' Versatile Award

EK Family Books nominated OEBooks for the Versatile Award. Selecting from a list of synonyms I take this to mean ingenuous and dynamic. I'll take that. Thanks E&K Family. I really appreciate the compliment.

Upon receiving this award, we must do 2 things. 1) Admit 7 random things about ourselves, and 2) Pass it along to 5 other Versatile Bloggers.

And so, first being first...

1. I Do Not solicit criticism. Ooops...did I admit that. What I mean is I take critcism about as well as the criticizer, but just don't request it. (broad smile).

2. I don’t know everything, but don’t fool yourself into believing you’ll win a debate with me.

3. I had to look up the word versatile. (Can’t believe I just admitted that. But that’s me… ole’ versatile!)

4. I enjoy being generous and I am easily forgiving… see above… this random thing balances me out… humbles me *so to speak*.

5. You can count on me to be late more times than I am on time. Actually, let me rephrase this. I cringe on making promises to attend events, knowing it’s a great chance I’ll change my mind ten steps toward the door…and stay home!

6. I’ve lived in 5 states, 2 countries and the best were California and Germany.

7. It’s not just a mantra I tell myself… but I really do love myself.

I Nominate the following 5 Blogs for the Versatile Award

2-R-I-N Christ Marriage Ministry 
Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy
Baja Greenawalt's Cozy Book
From Kafka To Kindergarten
Risqué Reviews

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…
