Thinking Blogger?


....I'd like to thank....

Amy Guth, who writes what is inarguably one of the best all-round blogs of all - "Bigmouth Ideed Strikes Again." She has bestowed the thinking blogger award upon me! According to tradition, I must now shine a light on my own selection of thinking bloggers.

(Subparagraph B, Article I:
The recipient of this award must follow these rules:
Acknowledge the origin of the meme/award
If you are tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
Optional: Display the “Thinking Blogger Award” with a link to the post that you wrote using either the gold or silver versions of the award.)

As you can see from the date of her post, it's taken me a long time (plus the move) to choose those people I know I enjoy and stimulate me into working a brain cell or two - in a diverse number of ways.

Without further ado, may I present (in random order), Shell's Thinking Bloggers!

The incredibly talented and wonderful Bev Jackson. She's got a beautiful curious soul that emanates from her blogspot. She's got these gorgeous pictures that illustrate her propensity for seeing it all - whether visually or in words.

Ellen Meister's site is great! She's so funny, and I love her briefs on books: they come complete with casting profiles for the movie versions. You've got to visit!

Kelly Spitzer has two features I enjoy: the Writer's Project, where she interviews an author every week and The Showcase, highlighting some of her picks best recent/current reads.

Once upon a time, Patrick Rapa reviewed one of my stories in "I Read A Short Story Today." I love this site. Each story he reads and reviews gives a brief description, his opionions on it, plus the issue and volume it has come from (or link, if an online zine). Learn about stories out there (and get a glimpse into whether your piece might fit in that magazine...?)

I may be prejudiced, but Kristen Tsetsi's blog is great. Her random thoughts are often quite deep, often daring, versatile and never boring. She's clever and creative - and the force behind Tuesday Shorts!


Well, that's all for today. I'm planning on going to see Joyce Carol Oates tonight at B&N Lincoln Center. If anyone nearby wants to join me!


Moi? Er....thankyouverymuch.


ooooooh, one bonus Thinking Blogger Award.....goes to [title of show].

I saw this production when I was here in September? October? Anyhow, for anyone with a creative spark anywhere in his or her body, this is a fantastic show. And the blog reflects it.

With songs like "Monkeys and Playbills," "Die Vampire Die" (one of my favs), "A Way Back to Then," and "Nine People's Favorite Thing"....well, I could list them all, but trust me, very inspirational! (Yeah, I own the soundtrack).

Meta-musical theatre. Was fabulous!

Thanks, Mikael! I happen to be off tonight, but I'm sort of on a writing binge right now. I'll try to get out!

Kristen said...

Wow! A thinking blogger award! How cool to get something you didn't even know was out there! She exclaimed!

It'll be a lot of fun to hand out my own thinking blogger awards.

Thanks, Shelly!

You must tell me what you think of JCO. An instructor I used to have didn't have nice things to say. He said she made fun of the Midwest - while speaking in MN.

Kristen said...

P.S. Sometimes I really, really wish I lived in NYC.

srr said...

and I can't believe that it took me so long to get here!!!

Amy Guth said...

Aw, Shel, you're the nicest. My pleasure to nominate such an in-the-know lady. :)

Be well in my fair city!

srr said...

It's going great here Amy! You have got to alert me when you come here for a reading or some such.

Kelly Spitzer said...

Thanks so much, Shelly!

srr said...

Oh, you are so welcome, Kelly. I just don't know how you do these fantastic interviews every week!
