Divine Award!

I have been given this rather enigmatic looking award from Rose, owner of the inspirational blog A Rose Beyond The Thames. Thank you!

I would like to pass this award onto the following folk – Kit Courteney Writes (when her laptop works), Just Twaddle, Wannabe A Writer, A Letter from Abroad (when her laptop works!) and In the Playground of Imagination.

Now, to each of the award winners: Pick up your award (save the picture above) and pass it along to 5 blogs of your choosing- but you can skip that bit if you like. Then answer the following questions with one word & post on your blog:

1. Where is your phone? Desk
2. Your hair? Flat
3. Your Mother? Tricky
4. Your Father? Photograph
5. Your favourite food? Chocolate
6. Your dream last night? Weird
7. Your favourite drink? Disaronno
8. Your dream/goal? Author
9. What room are you in? Office
10. Your hobby? Writing
11. Your fear? Mediocrity
12. Where do you want to be in six years? Happy
13. Where were you last night? Counselling
14. Something that you’re not? Assertive
15. Muffins? Martha
16. Wishlist item? Books
17. Where did you grow up? London
18. Last thing you did? Email
19. What are you wearing? Trousers
20. Your TV? Storage
21. Your pets? Cats
22. Friends? Lovely
23. Your life? Complicated
24. Your mood? Complex
25. Missing someone? Always
26. Vehicle? Tube
27. Something you’re not wearing? Socks
28. Your favourite store? Secondhand
29. Your Favourite colour? Green
30. When was the last time you laughed? Days
31. The last time you cried? Days
32. Your best friend? Happy
33. One place that I go to over and over? Work
34. Facebook? No
35. Favourite place to eat? Picnic

It is surprisingly tricky with one word! More words would reveal number 15 to be Martha and the Muffins, of course, who sang the marvellous Echo Beach. Although I was tempted to leave it with no explanation... but then you might think that I know a girl called Martha who only eats muffins, or I like to insult a girl called Martha by equating her to a muffin, or... well, perhaps I will stop there!

Jayne an award how lovely! I feel so honoured at such an early stage in blogging.

Following on from NaNoWriMo, I've been a bit in the doldrums - burnt out perhaps and bogged down by Christmas but your comments and this blog have inspired me to pick myself up again and get back to it.

I think its a good idea now that you have edited so far to start sending the first three chapters out. If nothing else it will push you to continue editing just in case you're lucky enough to be asked for the full manucript.

Have you seen Sarah Duncan's blog, she's got some brilliant advice on introductory letters.

Wanna be a writer.

Ooh fun to read your answers- and I agree one word is very hard for people who love words so much!

I assumed Martha Stewart for the muffins but will look up Echo Beach.

Kit Courteney said...

Woo hoo! Thank you!

I love things like this and shall try to do it asap (but you know me...)

Disaronno...? Now THAT'S dead exotic!

Jayne said...

Hello Wanna! Awards like this are fun, and a great way to get back into blogging. Hopefully after Christmas you'll get back into the swing of things!

I am going to send it out in January sometime, perhaps not at the beginning as I keep reading on advice blogs that it is a bad time to send. The more I read the more I get boggled. Haven't seen Sarah's blog - thanks for highlighting it, will check it out!

Jayne said...

Hi Rose! I've always liked the song Echo Beach. I think it is because the lyrics are about a girl in an office daydreaming about where she wants to be - I often feel the same!

Jayne said...

Love disaronno. It goes against my policy of only drinking clear spirits to save hangovers (e.g. vodka), but it's so sweet and yum. Disaronno on the rocks - lovely!

Ooops I missed this post Jayne, thankyou very much,
