I had no idea until this morning that I was nominated/asked to join in on a blog thingy: the #My7Links meme/project/linky blog hop. A wonderful woman from Australia, Janine Ripper, who writes Reflections from a Red Head, gave me one of the first honors…and I missed it completely. So, my deepest apologies Janine. Sometimes you have to hit me in the head. I was so busy with directing “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” this summer that a number of things scurried by me.
BTW, this blog thingy was sent to her by another Australian red head, Vicki Potts, of RedHeaded Travels. If you like, you can twit her at @redheadedtravel.
So, Janine was tasked to leave links to SEVEN of the her blog posts that stood out for her in seven different categories. Having done this, she was also instructed to pass this on to FOUR others (why not seven, Vicki?) to follow along. And so forth, to wit, and all that jazz. ONE thing Janine forgot is: I write two blogs, this one and Tale Spinning. She bestowed this upon me by @stustoryteller, but not by which blog. Sigh…guess I have to make it difficult for myself and make this a double whammy: I’m gonna give you 14 links, 7 per blog, and let you discover them on your own. Afterwards, my four to
give a headache to award.

OK..this one I’ll tell you why: I LOVE this world that I’m playing with, and I’m really happy with the six parts I’ve written so far. THIS is what I feel is going to be my first fantasy novel, and I could not be prouder of the work I’ve done on it. Look on my side-bar for the other stories. Links are in the later ones. I won’t name them here simply ’cause that’s outside of the #’s.
Now, to the four who might hate me forever for doing this to them. I’ve linked their blogs to their twit names. Hope you like them. Support The Arts!!
