Creative Writer Award (Yes, it is the big fat liar award--but creative writer sounds so much better.)

Courtney, at Courtney Reese gave me with this lovely Creative Writer Award. Thanks to Courtney, and I apologize for taking forever to come and claim it.
What can I say? Life got busy.

So Anyway, to business! I've co-opted Courtney's rules as follows:
Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.

2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.

3. Link to the person who nominated you.

4. Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.

5. Nominate seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.

6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Rather than go easy on you and only have 1 truth, I’ve changed the rules a bit. So, here are your 5 lies and 2 truths. Which is which? You’ll find out on my next post.

((DRUMROLL)) And here they are:

1.) My favorite movie of all time is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

2.) I am a writer of FABULOUS poetry.

3.) I have a tramp stamp.

4.) The desk I use to write at is a converted piano.

5.) I write absolutely all my work using Write or Die.

6.) In my spare time, I play the violin

7.) I do everything long before deadline because I don't like things hanging over my head waiting to be done.

I'm passing the award on to:

1.) Wendy Marcus at Must Have Romance for being such a great commenter. Thanks Wendy--I love to read your comments.
2.)Kimberly Franklin at Kimberly Franklin--Confessions: Secret Life of a Writer because she has a great thumb photo (makes me want to be in a convertible driving along the Florida Keys every time I see it) and because her blog is ALL. ABOUT. THE. BLOG. AWARD right now.
3.)Hilary Wagner at Hilary Wagner because I love her blog. Who doesn't like a little white rat or three?
4.)Lindsey Brooks at Dangerous With a Pen because someone who give away so many wonderful prizes deserves a prize of her own.
5.)Anisa at Anisa Off the Record because anyone who makes such a rockin' Darth Vader cake has got to have some super creative lies and truths!
6.)Mia Hayson who has a wonderfully visual blog at My Literary Jam and Toast --check it out if you haven't yet.
7.)Jessilyn at Jessica's Vision. Her blog has an amazingly rich old world vampire feel. Love it! Check her out!

And there you have it Ladies and Gentlemen! The Creative Writer (aka big fat liar) awards!


  1. Congrats on your award. And I'll guess numbers 4 and 5 are the truth. :)

  3. Oh thank you very muchly Merissa! You're so kind and I do love to write creatively :~D

    I would also put forward 4 and 5 because I would love them to be true! In fact I wish they were true for me too!!

  4. Great guesses! I'll tell you guys in my next post whether you're right. And---there will be visual aids! That's all I'm saying...

    Hilary--I added my comment and hit send--then realized I'd been sidetracked and didn't tell you about the award. lol. I was coming back to re-comment, but you saved me the trouble. :)

  5. Thank you so much, Merissa!!!!!

    And I wish I were driving in the Florida Keys right now too, but noooo.... I'm stuck here in Texas.UGH! LOL!

    Thanks for the award and congrats on your "liar, lair" award! I will get to this one soon! I promise!! : )

  6. Thanks, Merissa! I was so hoping for this one because it looks like so much fun! :D YAAAAY!

    I'm going to guess #4 and #1... just to be different.

    BTW, what is Write or Die?

  7. OMG!!!! I just looked it up. That sounds like the most fabulous I-Know-Lindsey-Gets-Distracted-When-She-Writes Tool EVER!!!

    Must try... :)

  8. Thank you for the award! You're so sweet. :) Now I must check out Write or Die. I've heard so much about it...

  9. Thanks so Much Merissa I will be posting this very soon ;) Can't wait to see which ones are true.

  10. You guys--Write or Die is the BEST if you get easily distracted or tend to obsess over every word like I do! I love it. Let me know what you think of it!
    I'll post the truths tomorrow--Golden Heart/Rita Drama day!
    All of you who entered--here's hoping you get the call!
    Okay--I know that's not possible, but it's a lovely thought... :)
