1. Do you think you're hot?
Ans: Heck yeah, Australia is one of the hottest places on earth and I live in my own sweaty little patch. You know what the song says - if you're hot you're hot, if you're not you're not.
2. Upload a picture or wallpaper you're using at the moment.
Ans: You might have noticed this picture on several blogs. This is a group of romantic fiction writers - guys and gals - who write 400 words on a Friday. Getting the word out. Seeing it for the first time? Hop on over and see what all the excitement is about (and it's not just because 3 guys have joined us!) Today, Friday (it is so Friday in Oz at least!) new posts go up. I wonder who will be the Featured Writer of the Week?
3. When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Ans: Are you kidding? Since my mother served me whizzed up brains and crumbed them and said they were chicken nuggets I never touch the stuff.
4. The song you listened to recently.
This is a link to a better version but the embed code is disabled.
5. What were you thinking as you were doing this?
Ans: Don't Francine and Nancy know I've got a truckload of stories to write before I sleep? Or get on the plane?
6. Do you have nicknames? What are they?
Ans: Francine has bragging rights for 'bubbles,' but I'm staying way away from alcohol this post. Got into enough trouble last tag time. Oh man, what is that song again - but I never drink red wine, so relax!
Oh? Nickname was it? Just plain boring ole 'Den' or 'Deni.'
7. Tag eight bloggers
OK folks, you're tagged!
1. Sylvia Ney

6. Nas Dean
7. Michael at ...in time
8. Deniz Bevan
9. Ellie Garret (I added Ellie coz I saw her enjoying another blog tag so I have an extra!)
Say something about number 5.
Clarissa is an inspiration. She is a great writer and her blog is a magnificent place to learn all kinds of sciency and writerly stuff.
How did you get to know number 3?
When his lovely wife Margo Benson hit blogger land, I was the first blogger she followed and Tony was hot on her dancing heels. Such a lovely couple from Devon.
How about number 4?
Who could inspire me more than Ann Best! Publishing your first book at 70! All that energy! And caring for her adult daughter Jen who has a disability. I love Ann's writing and know her memoir In The Mirror is going to be a great success and I'm looking forward to receiving my copy!
Leave a message for number 6.
Hello Nas! Thanks for inviting me to stay with you in Fiji! Can't wait!
Leave a lovey-dovey message for number 2.
Sweet Beverly! Thank you so much for signing up for Romantic Friday Writers and supporting our little shindig! Great to have you on board!
Do number 7 and number 8 have any similarities?
Well, they're both writers, both dedicated to their art and are sure to be huge successes in their writing careers! They both comment on my posts on a regular basis and I value their support in whatever I'm writing about. Watch this space!
And hey what about number 9?
Ellie is one of the young-uns that I have tagged who has a great future ahead of her. Can't wait to read her first novel! With her imagination and dedication it's going to be a blast.
