Another Blog Award and A Film!

It's almost the middle of October!!!! Oh.  My.  God.  I cannot believe it!  Yes it's beginning to get cold at this side of the world.  Not that I am complaining.  I love Autumn.  Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons.  They are not too cold, not too hot.  I like the fresh autumn fresh air at night, although in the morning you have to get all wrapped up and then by mid-day, you have to take them all off because it gets too warm.  Ha!  I know!  It's crazy.  But I still love Autumn.

So what have I been doing?  I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger.  I really should do this often.  But what can I do when there is absolutely nothing to write about?  I have been pre-occupied with the story I am writing and I've made progress by the way, yay!  20K words now and it's Chapter 11!  Hoorah!  I know sometimes I write rubbish but sorting out will be later when I switch my 'editing mode' on.

Now, on to the more exciting part of today - I received another blog award!!!! Thank you Nissi Peters (a.k.a. Glynis Smy), a very dear blog-friend of mine who has just finished her new book, Chewy Chester.

Thank you for this Strangely Irresistible Blog Award, dear Nissi! :)  I so love it! :)

Please feel free to visit Nissi's blog.  She's got lovely artworks of Chewy Chester in there as well that you will surely enjoy.

I now would like to pass this award on to 3 lovely bloggers who are also my favourites:

Talli Roland - for always making me smile when I read her posts, a smile that sometimes lasts for hours! Remember to join her Blogsplash!  Her debut novel, The Hating Game will be out on 01 December 2010!

Kathie (Just a Happy Housewife) - for very interesting posts - music, fashion, pets, anything under the sun and they always make me want to go back and check what's new!

Virginia Grenier (The Writing Mama) - I learn a lot from this blog and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Virginia for every post she's published on this blog of hers.  She probably won't remember me but I always go to check and see what she's written as often as I can.  She's so generous with information, just like almost all the writers I've met on line so far. 

Oh by the way, I told you I was reading 'The Witches' by Roald Dahl, didn't I?  I've also found out there was a film!  Although it was based on Roald Dahl's book, the film makers changed the ending...and to be honest, I liked it!  I shouldn't tell you how it ended on both the book and the film as it might ruin the excitement so can I say that I highly recommend both!  Children will also enjoy both of them!  I suggest read the book first and then watch the film.  I guess it's always good to do that :)

See you all again soon, my lovelies!  I will think of something interesting to write about next time! :)

Happy Monday!!!!!


Talli Roland said...

Yaaaayyyy! Thank you so much, Len! I really truly appreciate all your support and lovely messages that perk me up! :) Thanks again and I'm so glad the blogosphere has brought us together (as schoopy as that sounds!).

Theresa Milstein said...

Don't worry about how often you post. It's quality rather than quantity. And when people post everyday, I can't keep up!

I'm happy when Talli gets a shout out for her blogsplash.

Congratulations on your award, Len.

I didn't know there was a movie of Dahl's book. Right now I'm reading Reckless by Cornelia Funke. What are you reading next?

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

thank you! you made my day, so sweet of you to pass it along to me. :-)

Old Kitty said...

Awwww Congratulations with your award!! And your 20k and growing novel - well done you!! Keep at it!! Yay!!

I love Roald Dahl and The Witches is one of my faves! The film did it justice I thought - even with the ending.

Take care

Len said...

@Talli - same here, glad we've found each other on the web :) Oh don't worry about it being soppy...I love it! :)

@Theresa - I'm currently reading 'Rose' by Holly Webb and 'Misery' by Stephen King...and will start reading 'Harry Potter-Deathly Hallows' by JK Rowling - yes all at the same time, but alternately, but you know what I mean :)

@Kathie - my pleasure! I wanted to give you an award previously so this one's yours! :)

Len said...

Hello Old Kitty :) Yes, I totally agree about the ending of The Witches! It's just right that the film made it right in the end. I loved it! :)

Jen Daiker said...

Yay to fabulous awards! Congrats Len! You certainly deserve it, your blog rocks!!

Misha said...

Congrats Len! Both on the awards and on the progress :-)

Glynis said...

A well deserved award, Len. You are welcome. :)♥

Lydia Kang said...

Congrats on that sweet award!
It's always a good thing when you've got a good story to write that takes you away from blogging. Don't feel guilty!

Stephen Tremp said...

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi Len. Congrats! on the award.

Len said...

Hello to everybody! Thanks for dropping by! Will try to come up with more interesting topic soon. Hope you are having a beautiful Friday! :)

I love everything and anything by Roald Dahl!
Have you read The Twits? Personally that is one of my top fav by him because its so scandalous :)
Also BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is great and was made into a cartoon many years ago - it's a classic you must watch.
