My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

The Truth of It

Thanks everyone for suggesting which they believed to be the lie in my first crusader challenge entry. Now I shall put you all out of your misery and tell you the answer:

• one secret: My name was originally Sara Elisabeth (note spelling of second name is also a problem in the UK) and for a number of reasons (but especially the unbelieveable rudeness that I received by those whom I tried to explain how my name was spelled/pronounced) I changed it to Madeleine Sara. I chose the French spelling and pronunication of Madeleine (rather than the US Madeline). My initials now look so much nicer as MSM instead of SEM, don't you think?

• one of your favourite things in the whole world: Costa Coffee 

• one interesting quirk:
Off-the-wall sense of humour

• one lie:
I don’t take revenge on errant spellers of my name using my cold hands.
Some say 'cold hands, no gloves!' They say the best lies have some truth in them so…

• one annoying habit: I have been known to put my shockingly cold, Raynauds hands onto hubby’s warm, exposed neck.

• one of your best character traits: I’ve been told it is courtesy (except when putting my hands on hubby's warm neck of course!)

Did anyone guess it right?
Yes Kangaroobee

I've been whirring about this week trying to catch up on chores etc that I missed out on when I was ill and now I'm exhausted! LOL! Hope you've all had a good writing week.
