I'm honored to announce that writing pal, Linda Simoni-Wastila, has graced me with the Honest Scrap award. Linda's a talented writer and gentle soul whom it's been my privelege to learn with and from these past few years. To claim my prize, I need to reveal ten things about myself. Here's a few random things that you may not know.

1. I’ve been writing since I was 6 years old, when I wrote my first short story.

2. I have no patience for people who constantly complain, but do nothing to change their circumstances.

3. I love to learn new things whenever I can.

4. I’m desperately math impaired.

5. I have a pot of Italian wedding soup on the stove RIGHT NOW.

6. I believe hard work is the key to success.

7. I have been blessed with the best husband and daughter a woman could hope for.

8. I adore oatmeal raisin cookies.

9. I’m tripping around the house as I try to get used to my new glasses with progressive lenses.

10. We have three cats who rule the roost. No pedigreed purebreds. I like mutts.

Now for the fun part: I get to pass this award on. Here are three great writers who really deserve to be recognized for their honesty, hard work and integrity.

JC TOWLER: You ALWAYS tells it like it is.

STEPHEN BOOK: Your honesty has helped me grow by leaps and bounds.

JANE BANNING: You approach everything from a place of honesty. Honest images, honest opinions, honest dealings.

One last note: speaking of honesty, check back tomorrow for a follow-up to my blog post on Carmen's work being stolen. Carmen, aka Jane, will be stop by tomorrow to share the latest on her battle with a plagiarist.

Thanks for the tag and great compliment, Greta. My blogging effort remains it the creative phase, aka limbo, but maybe one day...

Look forward to the "other shoe" dropping soon on the Jane/Carmen's stolen story.

Great folks to pass the torch to... We MUST get JC to start blogging, though. Hmmm...

Very much looking forward to tomorrow's installment of "As the Plagarist Burns"

Peace, Linda
