It was very nice of Rebecca-Jayne, owner of the blog Detrimentally Disgruntled, to recommend Typewriter Poetry for a Versatile Blogger Award. And Antonio, owner of the art blog Scratch & Color, nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thanks to both of you!

In tune with the tradition, here are seven reveals about me personally, as well as a few other blogs I’d like to nominate.

1.) My goal in life is to become a traveling shaman.

2.) I work as a freelance video editor, graphic artist, photographer, and camerawoman.

3.) I’m a vegetarian.

4.) The tv show “Maury” will always be fascinating to me.

5.) The main reason I use Amazon is because of its WishList function.

6.) I was raped a few days after graduating university. A year later, I decided to buy a typewriter and write free poems for people in order to break out of a stagnant and depressing hold. If you are still reading this (and I thank you if you are), please check out this fantastic comic strip that deals with issues of consent: “Sex Talk.” And please remember, anything other than an enthusiastic ‘yes’ automatically means ‘no.’

7.) I’m about 1/3 done with my first novel, “The Natives,” which is about two underage outlaws in love.

Here are a few blogs I am nominating:

– Tammy’s blog, agrigirl

– Benjamin’s blog, bennyhanna

– Rebecca-Jayne’s blog, detrimentallydisgruntled

– Antonio’s blog, occultoantonio

– Jane’s blog, The Poetry Place

– Tricia’ blogs, PhotoPoetics and Survivor’s Guide

Oh my gosh!! The “R” word is totally detrimental…My, how courageous and therapeutic to transform that trauma into a positive thing. I experienced what the “R” hotline called a similation “R”–(pardon, not able to claim the word somehow)…The experience was very traumatic for me cos my relative was the perpetrator..Took me forever and beaucoup therapies to get over that one….
Keep on keepin’ on and use your pen…I am totally “begeistert” german word for ummmmm, sorry, I lose my English words at times….moment..(dictionary)……a deeper type of impressed…I will be back! Seize this year!!!
