I’ve been Nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award!!!

Thank you SO MUCH for nominating me, https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/11/11/the-beautiful-blogger-award/ I am beyond flattered.

Award Rules

1. Link to the blogger who has nominated you.

2. List 7 random facts about you.

3. Nominate 7 creative, beautiful bloggers and let them know about the nomination.

Okay, 7 random facts about me:

  1. I LOVE to write (completed 2 full-length novels and a number of children’s stories, with a lot more in the works – nothing published, yet). BUT, I don’t read…not novels or anything beyond blog posts or the occasional magazine article. I know…crazy, right?! I consider it my dirty little secret. Please, keep your judgments at bay. I lack the attention span…not sure why. Plus, I like to think that every idea I come up with is original, and not a regurgitation of something I once read. Wishful thinking, right?! haha
  2. I was a personal trainer for 10 years. Obsessed with exercise and proper nutrition. It wasn’t a healthy mindset, and I much prefer to be a bit fluffy and enjoy food without regret. I’ll be elaborating in the future. Not as black and white as it seems.
  3. My house is WAY too full…One dog, four cats, one rat, two children, one husband. No wonder I’m always so tired lol
  4. Take me to a Chinese food buffet, and I’ll clean it out.
  5. I’m a huge fan of horror movies, thrillers, murder mysteries. Not the gory kind, just the ones that mess with your mind.
  6. I’m actually quite emotional, despite my “brave face”.
  7. I’m a certified Scuba Diver…but frightened of the ocean. Go figure.

  1. Congratulations, Sara! I’m trying to figure out No. 7. I’m frightened of the ocean too and can’t imagine going scuba diving. You’re brave! How do you do it? πŸ™‚

  2. Hi – a few thoughts to share with your post here – that is really interesting about the scuba diving – but I guess you can always go in lakes and even certain pools if you wanted to – or do snorkeling – so if the ocean is not your thing – I guess there are options

    and regarding the reading – well it is true that you will not have certain priming and not have influences that can come being exposed to through reading.
    And I do think that maters in some ways. I actually stopped reading a few writers because I did not want them in my head and one time when I was editing chapters from a certain writer – it was immersive and a lot of work – well I found that the next few times I wrote – I had this author’s style showing up in my work. And I hated it – yuck. So I did learn that if I want to protect and hone my own voice I need to be very careful as to how much i was immersed (and maybe stained or impacted) by others and their diction, tone, etc.
    with that said, reading others writing does have its place and there are some authors who have helped me go to a new level.
    I read Jill Carattini (sp?) in the early/mid 2000s when I was in domestic mode and I know here astute writing modeled much for me.

    so there is this fine line where our originality can get lost or stained
    but then on the other hand – original is layered – and there is nothing new under the sun – we all have recycled ideas and have learned through shaping and early education –
    but I guess it is the way we package that with our unique voice and flavor – and it sounds like you are sitting on some fun writing projects – while keeping the creative flow tapped πŸ™‚
