Wednesday Update

Yup, I'm changing my updates to Wednesdays! The first bit of news is that I am participating in Blackbird in my Window's summer writing contest. The good news? You get to read part of my first chapter. Go have a look!

Second, in the past week I have received three awards and been tagged in a meme! Holy cow I feel so amazingly loved! I truly have the best readers EVER!

First up is the seriously cute blogger award from Cherie at Ready. Write. Go.

Oh! Now I want a puppy, tee hee!

Next, is the liebster blog award from my good friend, and next door neighbor, Krista at I Take The Pen

Liebster means friend in German, pretty cool huh?

Last, but not least, I won the flash fiction contest at Cheryl Ham's blog, check out my entry here.

It's so fun and flashy! I LOVE it!

Miss Cherie also tagged me in a meme! I've already answered some of the questions (you can find them here if you really want to know) So I'm only answering the ones I haven't before (it's my blog so I'm allowed ;)

Show us the cutest most adorable picture of your favorite animal.

How about the kind of puppy I want instead?

I just love Pugs little, squishy faces :)

You have five seconds to survive the Zombie Apocalypse. Choose one friend who would save your butt and tell us why you choose them.

Really? Isn't it obvious that I would choose my husband? He is pretty amazing with a gun ;)

Share a quote with us.

"Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did." - Newt Gingrich

I know you had trouble choosing just one, let's have another.

I, like Cherie, am not really a quote person. But I'll play nicely - "If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again." ~Flavia Weedn, Flavia and the Dream Maker, ©

Using exactly 27 words tell us your life story.

Born and raised in the same city. Moved to college at 18. Met hubby, had two kids, and wrote stories every place in between. That's about it.

Please do not throw your hands up in the air. This is not a stick up.

Well sometimes I like to do the Hokey Pokey, is that so wrong??

All the dead rock legends live again. You're standing in a fifty mile long line for:

No one. I hate lines! I'll just watch the MTV special later.

Describe yourself using six words that start with the third letter of your middle name.

N - Nice. Nerd. Nocturnal. Neutral. Double Nerd. Nitid (okay I cheated and looked a word up)

What is your middle name? (This is for research purposes only. Your response will not affect your chances of employment.)

Look at my pen name, now take a wild guess.

Okay, now it's my turn to tag some of my closest blogger friends! You get the two awards on top and the meme. Now go! ( I know some of you already have these awards, but I'm that generous)
