Dandy Lion






Well apparently I have been tagged by 3 different people with this award ( Billy, Shirley, Dan) and I am surprised to say the least. Usually it feels like my meager mewlings are being issued by this guy:

But in the spirit in which it was given, I humbly accept and shall now list my obligatory three things that make writing good and powerful before listing my five recipients.

The three things I feel make good writing are:

1. Avoidance of cliches

2. Crisp unique images

3. Loading each line with ore

and now (drum roll please) I pass the feline ferocity on to these whose blogs have been a constant source of entertainment and inspiration:

1. Ozymandiaz at Ocellus

2. Soulless at Unguarded Utterance

3. Russell at Yuckelbel's Canon

4. Dr. Ng at Always More Beyond

5. Brian at Brief Poems

Am I the only one who thinks Cliches can be valuable in writing?

I do agree that you deserve it, though.

Bob, this, too, shall pass...there is light at the end of the tunnel, because what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.

Don't worry, be happy...

(Sorry, couldn't resist)

Dude, you have without a doubt earned the respect of a lot of writers.

As for cliches-- I love 'em but yes they are easily over used.
