Honest Scrap blog award

Thanks to Mire and her wonderful book review blog (, my blog has this special little award.

I have to, according to the rules, post 10 things about myself in this blog post and pick 5 blogs deserving this award. Not the topic of writing but that's okay.
Here's the information about me:

1. I was born in a small town in wyoming. The same town my dad and his mom were born in, which made for a lot of people knowing who I am. Even had teachers that had taught my father.
2. Parents divorced when I was only 5 years old. Don't remember it really nor do I have many memories of when they were married.
3. I write in genres that I've never read. (tsk tsk, I know).
4. I am a very shy person, but don't always show it. Meet me at a writing conference or convention and you'd never guess that I was shy. The 8 years of competing in speech and debate helped with that.
5. While I want to be a published author, I also want to be a midwife part time. I'd love to be able to stay home part time as well working on novels and taking care of a family.
6. I can't wait to have kids and wish I didn't have to.
7. Weight has been a major issue for me over the years. Each time I make a huge effort only see minimal progress and back slide on a regular basis. I hope to change this in the future as I work on being healthier and exercising on a regular basis.
8. I love cats! And don't take kindly to humor involving harming them.
9. I can cook and bake. Trying recipes is very fun for me.
10. Technically I am bi, but I prefer to say gay. Never cared for the term lesbian, even though I prefer dating women. But right now I'm with a man. However, I am monogamous and will only be with one person at a time no matter their gender. My own gender has its questions and some days I think I would have been better off as a gay man.

Blogs deserving award:
1. My writing twin, who is always honest and willing to put forth her feelings and ideas even when that means trashing 50k words of a novel. 
2. CJ Darlington had good writing posts. Anyone who can struggle with characters is one I can relate to for sure. 
3. This one by Teresa Slack has writing and reviews. I like the title of it as well. 
4. H Paye is a friend from and introduces a number of authors in her blog.
5. Lenore is another resource for books to read and authors discussed.

That is my list and selections. Not sure how they find out but guess I'll wait and see.
