Black Cat Blue Sea Award

Elizabeth Drake (which is a cool name) nominated me for the Black Cat Blue Sea Award, along with seven others.  Thanks, Elizabeth !

What is the Black Cat Blue Sea Award?
This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it, and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.

Anybody nominated can nominate up to eight other bloggers
The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator
The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions
If any of the questions asked are offensive or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award

My Questions
1.If you could use only three adjective to describe yourself, which ones would you choose? Imaginative, lazy, and hungry. Hungry isn’t limited to food, but to learning and experiencing more.
2. What inspires you to write? Two multi-faceted things: existence, and the effort to define and understand what, why, and how things happen to people and the universe; and the great writers that have blazed the way with their stories.
3. What is your greatest joy in life? Tough question, because my wife and my writing are my greatest joys in equal measure.

All the bloggers I follow would deserve a nomination! Yet, having to choose up to 8 names,  my nominees are:

Elan Mudrow

The Story Reading Ape

Marc and everyone at Katzenworld

Little Fears

Cecilia Kennedy over at Fixin’ Leaks and Leeks

Frank Solanki


I’ll stay with the three questions E. Drake posed:

1.If you could use only three adjective to describe yourself, which ones would you choose?
2. What inspires you to write?
3. What is your greatest joy in life?

    1. Yes, although I checked her noms before pursuing mine, I overlooked your nom by Elizabeth. It was like cleaning out an attic full of boxes (or moving out of an office you were in for a long time, or cleaning a garage, etc.). As you clean, you open the boxes to look inside, and get sidetracked by what’s found. So it was struggling to decide who to nominate. I enjoy so many others’ post each day, it was very tough. I also know that a few I considered decline such noms, so I was vetting that, too. My apologies, but your posts are enjoyable – clearly, right? Cheers
