Goodness, Gracious, Great Balls of Fire! (Blog on Fire Award)

I have wonderful news! The beautiful, talented, and wonderfully kind artist's charm awarded me with the Blog on Fire award shortly before my recent short sabbatical from blogging. Thank you so much, Anna! I'm sorry it's taken so long for me to say anything, but life has been seriously crazy.

Plus, I went to the library. In fact, you'll find that many of my unscheduled sabbaticals from blogging stem from having visited the library. I truly love books that much.

Anyway, I have seven things about me to tell you again:

1.) I hate the smell and taste of alcohol. Even though I'm old enough to drink, legally, I haven't found many drinks that I like. Plenty I can tolerate, but none that I may enjoy.
2.) I love to sing and dance and act.
3.) I have a quite beautiful and powerful singing voice. Unfortunately, it fails me quite often on stage or in public. I have issues with being on stage as myself.
4.) I have acted parts in 2 plays, both musicals, and done spectacularly. My stage fright vanishes when I pretend to be a different person on stage.
5.) I dance okay. Not good or well, but okay. At least, my dancing isn't an embarrassment.
6.) I am allergic to the smell of cigarettes. They make my childhood asthma act up, and I feel as though I can't breathe whenever I'm around the smoke.
7.) I am a MAJOR procrastinator. I can procrastinate with the best of 'em, let me tell you.

And, as for the 5 people I'm passing it on to:

Now, time for our writing quote:

Have a great day, and happy writing! Tune in next time for more of an update on my writing life.

    I love to sing as well! I've only been in one play--Beauty and the Beast. I played The Beast. It was awesome. One of the greatest experiences in my life.
