Award and 250 Followers!

Um, yes, I know I've been blabbing about the writers' houseparty. It's winding down now; all we've got left to do is save the universe.

One of our contributors, Ron Wodaski, has a lovely poem over on his blog.



And hey, I just noticed - I'm at 250 followers! *pauses to catch a breath*
Wow. Thanks so much everyone. May the writing and blogging and fun continue for us all!

And thank you to Su for the cute award!


I've got to list five books/films/TV programmes I've experienced in the last 12 months. Being me, I'm going to mention five books, sort of:

Aww, I should have waited till 15 July, then I could have mentioned Harry Potter. But I did reread Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and The Tales of Beedle the Bard before the last movie.

Then there was the anthology Songs of Love & Death, which featured a new short story by Diana Gabaldon.

Clouds of Witness by Dorothy L Sayers. I love England in the 1920s!

I read some more Cat Who... books! I still haven't read all the books in that series.

And finally, lots and lots of YA and MG - Lure by Deborah Kerbel, The Finnish Line by Linda Gerber, Legacy by Kate Kaynak, Devil's Eye by Kait Nolan, the Day of the Pelican by Katherine Paterson, Dancing Through the Snow by Jean Little, Break on Through by Jill Murray, Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau, Milo - Sticky Notes and Brain Freeze by Alan Silberberg and Facing Fire by kc dyer.

I'll tag:

ZanMarie

Madeline

Jill

Sarah

and

Liz

I always feel so badly having to choose! Everyone should get awards once in a while.

Congrats on 250! And the House Party. And did it wind up with a bang! I've written 14,000 words in the last two weeks. (shaking head)

Now I'm two awards behind on posting at the Shade. I might have to do that today. ; )
Sarah McCabe said…
Congratulations! And thanks for passing the award on to me, though I have serious doubts about my cuteness. ;)
Carol Riggs said…
Yaaay, big congrats for reaching 250, Deniz!! Yeah--I can't wait for Harry Potter too, whee!
Len Lambert said…
Hi Deniz. Congratulations on reaching 250 followers! I'm currently reading HP 7 and I want to finish reading it before I watch the film.
Deniz Bevan said…
Thanks All, Zan Marie, Sarah, Carol and Len! I've got to start rereading soon :-)
Liz Fichera said…
You have a wonderful blog--not at all surprised that people want to follow you! :-) Congrats on the milestone.

Thanks so much for tagging me, Deniz! This will be a fun one to pass along.
Deniz Bevan said…
Aww, thanks Liz! *blush*

Thanks (belatedly) for the tag, Deniz!

I read LEAF, too, recently - very intriguing. I think it craves rereading, though; I recall reading it on very little sleep. [g]

Are you the type to go to midnight showings, ala Harry Potter? I know so many people that will -- but me, no. I want to see it, but can't handle the screaming crowds (not if I'm paying close to $15 for my ticket! Sheesh!), so will likely wait until the furor dies down somewhat.
Deniz Bevan said…
Nah, I can't handle them either. The only midnight showing I went to was the first Lord of the Rings (*had* to do that) and thank goodness I loved the first movie [g]
