This was nice to find this weekend. The very beautiful Jensinewall has given me this very inspiring award and what can I say but thank you.

A few bits about me as of June 18.2012 :

1. I love getting awards. Seriously, just when I’m thinking I might be wasting too much time here and should maybe abandon the Wit ship, someone wonderful tells me that I inspire them and then, well,…you know the rest…Who hasn’t thought about quitting too?

2. Tomorrow’s my birthday. Though I won’t reveal my age, and all you know not to ask a woman her age, I can say that I certainly don’t feel my age, that people are all the time shocked when I tell them how old I am. I feel like I’m 26 years old. (God, how I wish I was 26!) If you’re 26 and you feel like you’re getting old come over here and I’ll slap you right out of it!

3. I’m a writer. I’m working on revising my novel. I have countless short stories in files on paper and in my computer. I’ve lost count. For some reason they are all unpublished…I wonder why….

4. I dream all the time about living in Italy, or Paris or on some incredible island with white sand and blue water that never ends. I’ll write in Italy and Paris, and send plenty of Instagram pics out there to Twitter, etc.  I won’t bother to write in the sand.

5. I love old books, typewriters, cameras, cars, and vintage photography.

6. I’m writing from my dining room table right now, because I’m sick of my computer desk in my room without a door.

7. I think I’ll go slice up an apple to snack on…and when I’m done here I’ll be working on that revision.

Here are my Very Inspiring Blogger Award nominees:

Robin Coyle 

I’m so happy to have found you Robin. You’re a brilliant writer and very inspiring. The bookshop and vintage typewriter posts are my favorites.

xo, Wit
