Kreative Blogger

Laura Eno over at a Shift in Dimensions has awarded me The Kreativ Blogger Award. I am quite shocked as the last word I'd use to describe my blogging would be Kreativ. Boring? Routine? Inept? Sure, but creat...er..kreativ?

There are two parts to this award. First, that I pass it on to seven other bloggers. This is where I get creative and just pass it on to one, cuz I'd feel like Typhoid Mary otherwise. Plus, I only know a handful of other bloggers and wanna leave lots of potential suckers...er...candidates for them.

Thus, my choice for the Kreative Blogger award is Carrie Harris. I could spend hours going on about how awesome her blog is, the sheer comedic value in every post coupled with keen insights on life and writing (especially the dreaded query letter), but it's better if you just go see for yourself if you have not already.

The second part of this award is to list seven mystery authors. This is the easy part for me. I don't read mystery and couldn't name a single contemporary mystery author.

Aside from that bit of frivolity, this week has been pure suckage. Work has been hell. Monday was one of "those" days when things went wrong all day, making a long day even longer. Today was marginally better, but I am sore all over from it all. On top of all that, my wife's father has been in the hospital, so there has been lots of driving around after work running errands and helping her parents. No writing at all this week. It's all I can do to keep from collapsing at the end of the day.

I think your blog is quite crea...er, Kreativ. :) The awards also serve the purpose of leading others to your site who might not have found you otherwise.

I'm off to discover Carrie Harris now - thanks!

Snarf. The prize is great, but I particularly love the fact that you completely disregarded the rules. You deviant you.

And I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.

Anyway, thanks for the compliments and the award!

I think I got the slimmed down version of the award. Which works out well, given my laziness.

I hope your week is getting better for you.

I'll name seven mystery writers for you, just so the rules police won't confiscate your award. You are definitely kreativ, and even creative.

Agatha Christie
Dorothy Sayers
Susan Conant
Joan Hess
Robert Barnard
Barbara Pauls
whatsername Brabson

I did that with no help from the internets or anything!
