Versatile Blogger Award: Thanks Peaches

  This is my fifth blogger award and I'm so happy about it. Click here to see me gush about the two awards I got before this one. I know some people don't see the significance of an award you can't feel or hold but these awards show both love and respect of fellow bloggers in the blogging community. I have to thank Peaches from Conceive Writing for this award. I met her through my Insecure Writers Support Group post and it was great to meet a fellow Jamaican writer.

Rules for accepting the award
  1.   Create a post for the Versatile Blogger Award
  2. Add the Versatile Blogger Award
  3. In the same post, thank the blogger(s) who gave you the award and put a link back to their blogs.
  4. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers the Versatile Blogger Award and inform each nominated blogger by posting a comment on each blog.
  5. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself
  6. In the same post, include this set of rules
Seven random facts about me

1. I can't swim.

2. Not a big fan of the beach.

3. For the Hookers and Hangers Bloghop I'll be posting my hookers and hangers from a zombie story with contemporary versions of fairy tale characters.

4. I bought Insurgent on Monday. So excited. Biggest shocker so far? Page 116. A doozy.

5. I hate watermelons.

6. I love bananas.

7. I really love most of the characters I create when writing. But they're a few I hate. I just can't stand them yet I love how I can weave a story around them and bring them to life for others.

  4. Thanks for the award Sheena. Like so many other Jamaicans, I can't swim either. Not crazy about the beach either. Actually, it's the sand that can be a bother sometimes. Couldn't find an email addy for you, but sent you a message via a response to your comment on my blog. Did you ever see that?

  11. You acted quickly, Sheena. Why do you dislike the poor watermelon that has cancer fighting antioxidant and vitamin A?
