Gosh I'm starting to feel so loved! I just got a new award from my lovely friend Ruth who says the funniest things and has given me my new favorite word:
Cowbag: (def) a sorry, self-pitying person--which I am whenever I'm on deadline or sleep deprived.
Anyway, she has awarded me the Lucky 7 Meme and Sunshine Award. Here's what I have to do:
1. Go to the 77th page, 7th line of my WIP and copy down the next 7 lines, no cheating! --Weeelll, since I am on a very new WIP, I will cheat a wee bit and go to my 7th page, 7th line. So here goes:
I shut the door behind him once he’s out in the hall and then make sure to lock it. I’m much less nervous now—which is what Cody intended, I’m sure.I pull off the uncomfortably tight sweater Taylor insisted I wear and slip Cody’s shirt over my head. A mixture of pine scented deodorant and the glue he uses when he works on his movie special effects stuff surrounds me. I breathe it in and my body starts to relax. Now that I don’t have a real home anynmore, this scent is the closest thing I have to one. I move in front of the mirror. The shirt skims my body...
***keep in mind that this is rough stuff, people and I'm being brave just by putting it out there!
2. I must fill in the following blanks:
Favorite Color: that really great sapphire blue that the ocean is when you're in the deeper waters in the carribbean. I stare at it until my eyes hurt when I'm there.
Favorite Animal: Dolphin-no, I am not very original here. I lurv these guys and could hang out and watch 'em all day long.
Favorite Number: 2--but only because it is the number of manuscripts I completed before getting and agent and the number of kids that I happen to have.
Non-alcoholic Drink: Coke Zero or a Venti Black Tea/Lemonade from Starbuck's...it's a coin toss.
Facebook or Twitter: Twitter, Facebook is my nemisis although I do use it, I just hate that I need to.
Passion: Life. I'd say writing, but first and foremost, it's living this life to the absolute fullest and doing whatever it is that fulfills me as much as possible--this is where the writing comes in.
Getting or Giving Presents: Giving, hands down. My favorite to date: a stocking full of snowballs (and one twinkie) to my Zombieland loving husband.
Favorite Pattern: The one where I write well and regularly? Oh, you mean pattern, pattern...maybe polka dots.
Day of the Week: Currently, Monday, because I have a week's worth of time to write ahead of me.
Favorite Flower: Um, really bad at remembering which flower is which and considering my penchant for killing all flowery things in my own garden--I'm afraid to single any out for fear of them all running away in fear. Maybe tulips or Fields full of lavendar.
Now I must tag 7 more authors. Here are my picks:
