This last week has been super hectic for me. So much, that I wish I had a Tardis of my very own. No, seriously, I do. Or maybe even a Time-turner would do.

I’m still fighting to get through the 384 flash fiction pieces in the Writer Campaign. You’d think getting through that many 200 word stories would be easy. But that is a decent sized book.

After all, it’s approximately 76800 words. Not that this usually stops me, I can read way too fast for my own good – however, that’s in a one story omg must find out situation. This 200 word tidbits and glimpses into worlds I can’t delve into more is excruciating! I want to know more – 200 words is just NOT ENOUGH for my brain to handle.

Well, that and I have a chapter to critique and two books to read for crit partners. Not to mention work that sabotages 45 hours of my week, my husband, my own outlining, my dogs and my working out? Hi Time – can I have that Tardis, please? I will eventually make it through all the flash fiction – I WILL!

Now, imagine my surprise to receive a couple of awards over the last few days.
I received the Versatile blogger from A.E. Martin – Thank you SO much! and also from Isis Rushdan


I also received the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award from Isis as well. Thank you so much again!

I must confess, I am a tad confused – as both came with different directions. One to pass on to 15! and one to pass onto 5. I will endeavor to pass it on to many – but here are the guidelines I’m using for the Sweet and Versatile Awards respectively:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominates you
2. Share seven random facts about you
3. Pass this award to five new blogging friends
4. Contact and congratulate the awarded bloggers

1. Thank and link to the person who nominates you
2. Share seven random facts about you
3. Pass this Award along to 15 recently discovered blogs and let them know about it!

I contemplated doing 14 facts, but a) no one needs to know that much about me and b) I really couldn’t come up with another 7 that weren’t TMI :p

Here are seven random facts about me:

1. My Father is German, my mother is British and I was born in Brisbane Australia, got married in 2007 and now live in Kansas, USA.
2. My favourite pizza is pepperoni + fresh tomato + anchovies with as little cheese as possible. I love cheese, just not melted or hot, and I ADORE Anchovies. Anchovies with smoked salmon, pizza, Caesar Salads… mmmm Anchovies
3. I don’t smoke and I drink maybe once or twice a year. My one vice is coffee – and I’m not giving it up any time soon.
4. I love Star Trek, in all its forms (except maybe that 70’s animated version – I mean, really?) Data is my favorite, followed closely by the Doctor in Voyager and Phlox in Enterprise. And then there’s Kirk… who doesn’t love Kirk, right?
5. I love anime. Lots of anime. But, I’m very picky about anime too – good thing there’s so much of it.
6. I’ve never been to a writer’s convention and would seriously like to rectify this oversight. Soon. A.S.A.P. Yesterday.
7. When I was 12 I ‘fell’ onto the foot of my bed from the top of my wardrobe. I broke my 9th left rib, bruised my kidney, liver, bladder (yes, pretty much everything) and almost ruptured my spleen. I woke up after two days to a room full of people in white coats. Yep, one day I’ll make a novel out of that… and yeah we were jumping from the wardrobe and bouncing off the bed… The things we do as children.

1. Lisa M Potts

4. Susie Medwell
5. Bethany Lopez

That’s it! I’m about posted out for the day. It was really hard to narrow the blogs down, I’ve found so many great ones and mean no offense to ones I may not have included. I did try to find ones that didn’t already have the awards, at least that I could see. I’ll be popping in and informing everyone a little later on.

Again, thanks for the awards and thank you to everyone partaking in this Writer’s Campaign. It’s turning out to be pretty freaking amazing!
