I am delighted to accept Charles French’s nomination for the wonderfully named Dragon’s Loyalty Award. Charles French’s Words Reading and Writing blog is subtitled ‘And exploration of writing and reading’ which nicely sums up his whole approach, so it’s not a surprise that he is rapidly growing in popularity with his series of readable and informative articles that he publishes. He is also has a delightfully friendly, inclusive approach which guarantees a warm welcome to any passing visitor. If you haven’t already dropped in, I recommend you do so.

Seven Interesting Things About Me – hm… it’s debatable whether the facts below are remotely interesting, but I tried to dredge up details many of my online friends wouldn’t necessarily know about me.
1. I spent a chunk of my childhood in Zambia, and when living with my grandparents I first flew unaccompanied from England to visit my parents in Africa when I was 8.
2. As a left-hander, I turn the paper sideways and write from top to bottom, a strategy I adopted at school to avoid smudging my writing.
3. I’m a writing addict and if I go more than 3 days without putting keyboard to paper, I turn a tad unreasonable.
4. I was born on a Wednesday and so were both of my children and my granddaughter.
5. I am the ultimate monotasker – the multi-tasking skill women are supposed to be endowed with has completely by-passed me.
6. I’m an insomniac.
7. I visualise each of my books as colours when I’m writing them.
