First of all , this post is overdue – I should have written it a week ago . My apologies . I've been tagged by Fellow Campaigner , Daina Rustin over at her blog Mystic Treehouse . This means that I have to share 10 random facts about myself .
~ I read , write , play and tutor music … it is an integral part of who I am .
~ I'm not a TV/movie fan … there's one local soapie that I watch faithfully , throw in the odd movie … and that's about it .
~ With the above in mind , there are only 5 movies that really captured my attention … in no particular order : The Shawshank Redemption ; The Man In The Iron Mask ; Gladiator ; The Count Of Monte Cristo ; The Titanic .
~ I love rooibos tea but must confess to a recent coffee addiction … I think it's a phase (well , hopefully …)
~ I love snacking on popcorn ; not the microwave variety , instead the old-fashioned pot on the stove-top method .
~ I'm still trying to learn to swim ….
~ I truly believe that INPUT=OUTPUT and this applies to anything that you do in life .
~ My first attempt at fiction was a 100-word story written just under a year ago .
~ I'm basically a shy person .
~ I love writing by hand and have been corresponding with fellow bloggers by exchanging hand-written letters . Each letter includes personal creative writing challenges/prompts . So if you are interested in this dying form of correspondence , and would like to learn more about this pen-pal programme , or would like to get involved in the programme , then you can read more about it here and here . You could also mail me : mish@writer-in-transit(dot)co(dot)za – and I will be happy to fill you in on the details .
So now , I have to tag back 5 more people . At this point , I'm going to bend the rule , just ever so slightly (hope you don't mind …) Instead of pinpointing 5 people , I'm going to direct your attention to the blogs of some of my fellow campaigners . They are a wonderful bunch of talented people . This is a post of Le List of the 22 Fellow Platform-Building Campaigners in my Short Story Group . Check out their awesome blogs . Enjoy !!
