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...

Fabulously Stylish Blogger

HUGE THANKS to Maeve at Lollipop's Cottage
for awarding me a
Stylish Blogger Award
and Jenny at Castles in the Sky
Having been delighted and honoured to receive this award on a number of occasions
I hope they won't mind that I decided to morph this award into
a Fabulous Blog Award,
so I could pass that on to my fellow fabulous bloggers, instead.


The Rules:
  • Thank the person from whom you received the award & Leave a comment on their blog
  • Pass the award on to up to 4 other bloggers,
    Remember to check that it’s not an award they’ve already received.
  • Answer the following questions:

1. Do you collect anything, if so what?

I used to collect cloth figures and rag dolls, but realised I was running out of space. However, I do love books and would always collect and keep them regardless of space.

2. Name an author you'd absolutely recommend and why

 I would recommend Small Island by Andrea Levy. I enjoyed the TV dramatisation and the book. I love how she interweaves the lives of the Jamaican and British characters and her characterisation and storytelling is excellent. Indeed, I have enjoyed every one of her novels that I've read so far. The Long Song is on my TBR list.
 


3. Tell us how you chose your blog name

I tried for ages choosing a blog name with the combination of words to do with writing, but it kept coming up that the name had already been assigned. I was quite frustrated. Then I brain-stormed other writing words and finally came up with scribbleandedit.

4. Are you a member of any hobby groups?

 I am a member of a knitting group that meets every Thursday and I have a subscription to a Writers' Magazine.

5. Are there any genres you read but don’t care to see as films or TV or prefer to watch but rarely read as novels?
Yes I tend watch much more TV Historical, Crime and Sci-Fi than I ever read. Though I have been known to read the Classics Costume Drama/novels and Children’s Sci-Fi.
I went through a phase of reading Autobiographies, but don’t like reading Biographies (it’s the psychologist in me), while I don’t mind watching biographies on the screen.

I'm passing this Fabulous Blog Award to:

  5. 'I tried for ages choosing a blog name with the combination of words to do with writing, but it kept coming up that the name had already been assigned. I was quite frustrated. Then I brain-stormed other writing words and finally came up with scribbleandedit.'

    Funny how the process and the name were one and the same.

  6. Thanks so much for the award I am honored that you would give it to me. I like your blog name and it must have been fate that none of the others worked because yours is so cool:) Books are so hard to get rid of for me. I have books from school that I have had for years.

  7. I used to collect things as well, but for the same reasons have stopped. But, just like you, I will always collect books and as easy as kindles and such are, there's nothing like a hard copy book to flip the pages and enjoy the smell of.
    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. Why, if I may ask, is it a 'used to be' profession?

  8. Hey Madeleine,
    Yes, it's me, shy and humble me, back from his triumphant trip to Canada where I signed autographs for my adoring fans :)
    Anyway, well done you on receiving yet another thoroughly deserved award. And well done to all those you have forwarded it onto.
    Do you tell funny jokes at the knitting group? Bet the jokes would have them in stitches! :)
    Take good care and happy writing.
    In kindness
