The Prestigious Thinking Award
Descartes said, "I think, therefore I am."
While it is fun to debate precisely what Descartes meant, or how much our thinking selves impacts who we are - I'm not going down that road today. My friend and sister-in-blog, Susan, gifted me with the Thinking Blogger Award while I was at my brother's wedding.
We share our stories and our thoughts for many reasons: to educate, entertain, call to action, anger, appease, or just boost our own ego, etc. For any reason, when you share something that stimulates or causes another to think - it's a wonderful thing. One of the reasons that I am so addicted to the blogosphere is that connection, the sharing of minds that we can do.
Now that I have received the thinking award I am to send it on, to other bloggers that have made posts that I found particularly thought provoking. I'm a little behind and I've seen several of my usual blog haunts have already posted, of course, Susan... and then I was going to tag December Quinn - but someone else got her first! So, I'll just have to try others that may not have been hit yet. In no particular order, I am giving the Thinking Award to:
On 101 Reasons to Stop Writing there are often humorous and cynical posts, which I find amusing. There was a post in March that I enjoyed reading. Here is the link to Aside: The Ark of the Incompetent
Erica Writes often has great posts that bring a smile to my lips, or make me get to thinking. She's got a great post on Battling Writers Blocks. Since I haven't written a word on my manuscript in the last month... I think I'm right in the middle of a block!
Cuss and Other Rants is one of my favorite stopping spots. It's definitely for a mature ready, sometimes her humor is dry, to-the-point, and oh so witty (but with a touch of *naughty*). She recently went on a trip and has had several posts about her trip. I found her post on Polyagomy=A Nor'eater on a Sunday in April a read to get you thinking.
I enjoy visiting Mark Terry's blog and often think about the tidbits, observations, and advice he shares for writers. His post Writing As Chess is another great read.
Daisy Dexter Dobbs is a blog I've only recently discovered because Rhian/Crowwoman said she had some great posts... and she does! And here, a post dedicated to chocolate... how can that not get your synapsis firing? Daisy Visits Junk Chocolate Heaven
