Real Neat Blog Award!

Real Neat Blog Award

A Creative Mind has been nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award.  Thanks to Shawn at DownHomeThoughts for the nomination.

The Rules:

1) Put the award logo on your blog.
2) Answer the questions asked by the person who nominated you.
3) Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
4) Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
5) Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

The Questions:

  1. What is your Quest? My quest is to be the best writer and blogger I can be.
  2. What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? Don’t know, but it would be interesting to find out 🙂
  3. Why or why not is character important to you? Character is important to me as a writer and a reader. I love the plots of books but if the character isn’t one I would love to read about then I loose interest fairly quickly regardless of the plot.
  4. Is it okay to lie, even a little white lie? It’s not okay to lie, even if it’s a little white lie.
  5. What is the hardest thing you have ever had to do? I have to say that would be dealing with my grandmother’s death. She was my mom’s mom. I was really close to her and I was born on her birthday. She had helped my mom raise me. It was really hard to see her health decline in the last few years before her death. I wish sometimes that she was still here with me and my mom.

#IWSG: Writing Agenda


Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

Took a few days off after the A to Z challenge. Now, I need to start on the following:

1) Short stories that are due in a few months

2) Next year’s A to to Z theme

3) Edit the first book of my vampire series

4) Start my epic fantasy novel

5) Work on a idea for a possible web series

6) Hobbit/LOTR series of posts for the blog

7) My characters posts for the blog

8) Stories and other updates for the blog

9) Work on my FAE novel

10) Work on the shapeshifter series

and those are just a few projects I have either on my laptop or the files are on my desk needing to be put into scrivener.

Nothing negative to report about writing this month. Everything seems to be going good right now. I think the one reason for that is I’m keeping busy with the writing whether it’s the short stories, fan fiction, the blog, or the novels. I hope that it keeps going.

That’s it for now. Look forward to your comments. 🙂
