Many thanks to Susan at Redbuds and Rose Rocks ~ A little bit of this and that, with an Okie twist who nominated this blog for The One Lovely Blog Award. It is really lovely to know that someone thought that it was worth a visit and would recommend it to others. image

Seven facts about this blog

1. I started this blog to satisfy a need to get my writing read. Are you really a writer if nobody reads it?

2. When I started, I was taking a MOOC with Coursera, Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, Our Modern World, and my first posts were my better essays .

3. Then I discovered Blogging U and signed up for Blogging 101 and Writing 101 . Both were huge fun and I met lots of great bloggers.

4. My goal is to post twice a week but I have discovered that I am a slow blogger. It takes time until I think I’ve got something worth posting.I’m working on moving up a gear!

5. I tend to write short posts,about 5oo-800 words. I enjoy the challenge of condensing the idea. However, I am working on producing longer pieces – another challenge.
