The Black Cat Blue Sea Award

I was nominated for the Black Cat Blue Sea award by the amazing and talented Sheryl. She has a wonderful blog worth following at

This is an award given and received by fellow bloggers and is meant to be fun. If any nominees are not interested in participating you don’t have to, I wont be offended.

The rules are as follows:

The questions I was asked to answer:

1  What has blogging done for you as a writer?

Blogging has given me focus and the drive to write every day. Before I started my blog I wrote only when I thought I had an idea. Now I push myself a little harder – not forced, just a gentle nudge.

2  What are your 5 top favorite movies and or books?

I love both and think they’re a great form of communication so from 5 – 1:
Movies: Apollo 13, Bull Durham, The Princess Bride, Joshua (2002), Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Books: No Exit, The Giving Tree, Mister God This Is Anna, The Alchemist, The Little Prince

3  What/who inspires you to write?

Inspiration is sometimes a personal thing but I do have a few friends who supported me as I began my journey as a writer. They were my cheerleaders when I wanted to quit. When I get stuck I always think of them.

 My seven nominees are:

Live, Laugh, Love Writing
Mrs. Completely
Roberta Pimentel
Second Time Blogger
Beyond The Garden

Questions for my nominees:

1)  Why did you start blogging?
2) What do you do when you need to unplug and relax?
3) Name 3 people you admire and one of the qualities you admire in them.

Thank you Sheryl for this award. It was very fun!!
