Honest Scrap Award!

by Madeleine Rex

Yea! Awards!

Regan, who writes one of my favorite blogs (and, yes, she’s one of my favorite people, darling Regan), has so graciously given me the Honest Scrap Award. Here are the instructions that have been passed along (all the people I’m handing this award to should follow them as well):

Share ten honest things about yourself and pass this lovely gift on to ten other Honest, Upstanding and ‘Scraptastic’ bloggers.”

Onward! (My award posts are terribly choppy reading-wise. I apologize.)

“Ten Honest Things About Myself”:

1 ) I willingly help with laundry at other peoples’ houses, but I absolutely detest the job at mine.

2 ) I have a tendency to take things way too seriously/over-think them. My teachers have been mentioning this at every Parent/Teacher/Student Conference since first grade.

3 ) I go nuts if my bed isn’t made – meaning my entire room has to be clean or I’ll end up in a padded cell.

4 ) I procrastinate. I received this award two weeks ago.

5 ) I am not simply a book snob, but a movie snob. Blu-ray all the way. Hi-def everything. We have a projector and ridiculously large movie screen in our bonus room. I inherited this trait from my father (whom I love).

6 ) I say “I love you” way too much. You’re about to say that this is impossible, but it’s not. I can say “I love you” three times in twenty seconds, and have. My parents laugh at me sometimes.

7 ) I feel guilty/like I’ve disappointed constantly. I’m always feeling guilty.

8 ) I cry really easily.

9 ) I laughed and screamed “Awesome!” at a particularly graphic beheading in the TV-edited version of “Sleepy Hollow” – and I laugh at a lot of the gory stuff. Don’t think I’m a freak, please. I’m not. Promise!

10 ) Before I die, I want to write a book that will keep on living.

Whew! That took a while. Now for other “scraptastic” people!










And, naturally, I can’t find ten. I’m still on the look-out for writing buddies (and two of the people listed are book blogging pals). Most of the people above I know from Twitter, but I linked their blogs because those are amazing, too!

Thanks again to Regan!

My next blog post will either be a book review or on inspiration, so readers and writers, check back soon!

P.S. Winners: I have no idea what “scraptastic” means, and the people I’ve talked to don’t know, either. Interpret for yourselves.

  1. I say "I love you" an awful lot, too. Along with too many, "I'm sorry"s.

    I hope you do get your novel published; what a worthy dream!

    And, I'm glad you'll join in The Brothers Karamazov. We'll get the specifics down as soon as I see who wants to join us.

    I cry really easily too, which probably explains why my eyes are perpetually puffy.
