|Bronzed award from Cassandra Page's blog|
It's much like a blog hop in that I was tagged, I must tell you seven random things about me, then I'm to tag seven other writers.
Back in March, 2012 I wrote a 5 Random Things About Me blog post. Though it was tempting, I did not duplicate any of those things here.
I am a Night Owl
|"Hunting Ground" by violscraper via foter.com|
My first memory of public humiliation was delivered by my P.E. teacher in Grade 9
|"6 Qualities of Light Assignment: Low Key" by philografy via foter.com|
I have a serious fascination for maps
|The Dakina Islands by AJ Bradley|
The first time I got drunk, I acted like a debutante, and it worked.

I not-too-long-ago had a dream that involved...gulp...Robert Pattinson (*headdesk*)
|"Edward" by i heart him via foter.com|
I recently took The Color Quiz personality test
|Take the test!|
"Creative and emotional, looking for ways to further expand those qualities. Seeking adventure and new and unusual activities."
"Is resistant to outside pressures and control, or anything that stands in the way of her freedom to make her own decisions and plans."
Here are a few things they said that I didn't like:
"Is bothered when her needs and desires are misunderstood and she feels there is no one to turn to or rely on. Her self-centered attitude can cause her to be easily offended."
"Insists her hopes and ideas are realistic and achievable, but needs encouragement and support. Her self-centredness can cause her to take things too personally."
So, apparently, I'm rather touchy... ;)
I once pretended to be gay

I'm not sure why this memory stays with me. Perhaps I was proud of my acting (lying my butt off) skills. But I think it's more because I saw a darker side of how (some) men see women. He was angry, as though, as a man, he'd had some right to me, and I was denying him that right. I never saw him again.
Well, there are seven random things about me. The next step is to tag seven other writers/bloggers to receive the award. This is difficult because the content of the Seven Random Things is about YOU, rather than your work. Let me just tag those writers that I find inspiring, generous, interesting, and friendly. I include them here to forward you on to their sites, without any expectations.
1. Ksenia Anske is one of the most courageous bloggers I've come across. Her posts are inspiring, artful, and soul-baring. Not to mention her amazing storytelling skills...
2. Audrey Havlin and I met over facebook and she is the sweetest, most talented writer. She and I share a lot of the same taste in art/music/books/movies and love of faery lore.
3. Jami Gold: I first heard of Jami through NaNoWriMo and when I visited her blog, I immediately followed it. She is incredibly generous in sharing her experiences in writing and recently set up a Query/Blurb Exchange Club.
4. Michelle Saint-Germain Weidenbenner is half of the team that runs Random Writing Rants and if you haven't visited this blog, you should! She's posted tonnes of great writing tips and inspiring posts to keep you at your craft. She's friendly and encouraging and I'm so glad I stumbled upon her site.
5. Angela Quarles geek girl romance writer. Check her out. She's funny. She's quirky. She's generous with her romance writing advice. I love her Six-Sentence Sundays.
6. Justine Musk because you're a creative badass. If you are ever in need of some in-depth thinking on creativity and the process of finding/freeing/feeding your soul, check out Justine Musk's blog. You may be familiar with her name as I've cited her several times here, she is my go-to when I need a little you-can-do-it.
7. Ava Jae at Writability. Her blog is chock-a-block full of truly awesome writing tips. She blogs as though she's sitting in front of you at the coffee shop and working out all your writing kinks.
So, that's it. Thank you for reading this epic all-about-me post! And thanks again, Amber Bardan for awarding me; this was fun!
