It’s Official!

<Fanfare of trumpets, please>

I’m proud as punch over this (although being a bit behind the learning it curve when it comes to things bloggish, it took me a few days to figure out how to post this).  No, I don’t get a trophy or mention in the newpaper or scads of money — but who cares!  I’m so pleased that someone has enjoyed my writing enough to want to acknowledge it.  Thanks again, Kana Tyler!

So the “rules” as I understand them is that I post the award and then do an alphabet-run describing myself.  So, for better or worse, here goes:

C – CHRISTMAS (AND CATS, CANDLES,  & CHEESECAKE)                                               D – DOGS

G – GERANIUMS (AND GARDENS)                                              H – HIKES (ALSO HAMBURGERS)

I – ICE CREAM                                              J – JOYFUL

K –  KIND-HEARTED                                            L – LUCKY

M – MARRIED                                           N – NEWBURYPORT (AND NEWCASTLE BROWN ALE)

O – OATMEAL                                              P – PENSIVE

Q – QUIET (MOSTLY)                                              R – RIDING

S – SCOTLAND (AND STOVIES; ALSO SCONES)                                              T – TEA

Y – YOUNG AT HEART                                              Z – ZOOS

About Melissa Crandall

Longer ago than I care to admit--although I will--I cut my writing teeth on fanzines and media tie-in novels. Since then, I've moved on to narrative nonfiction, speculative fiction, and essays. I write to explore and understand the world around me, the things I see and experience nearby or from a distance. If I shake myself up, cool. If I shake you up, even better. Not gratuitously--what's the point in that?--but to set what I know, or think I know, on end and realize, "Well, doesn't it look different from this side!" My work is neither sexually explicit nor graphically violent. Let's face it - your imaginations will come up with things far worse than anything I could write, no matter how descriptive. Besides, it's just not my thing. I live in Connecticut with my supportive husband Ed, a cat named Ruby who might just think she's a dog, and an epileptic Australian shepherd named Holly who isn't quite certain anymore who she is, except she knows she loves her mommy.
