You're so sweet, your words are gold
This, my darling, I've been told
No one's nicer on the net
No one's better, this I bet
Your comments are always good
Everyone loves you, as they should
Oh, please read with me, Deanna
Thrills I get when you read my stuff
Even when it's mostly fluff
You're always way too nice to me
Oh, Deanna, can't you see
You give to others with all your heart
And I hope we will never part
Oh, please stay with me, Deanna
Oh, the pen must be your lover
Because you write like there is no other
We all love you with our heart
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Only you can take our heart
Only you would never fart
When you hold us in your loving arms
We can feel you giving all your charms
Hold us, darling, ho-ho hold us tight
Be our friend with-a all your might
Oh, please read our stuff, Deanna
Oh, please, Deanna
Oh, please, Deanna
Oh, thank you, Deanna!
For those of you who haven't heard of Deanna Schrayer (you must have been under some big-assed rock), she is probably the nicest person on the #fridayflash circuit.
No matter how bad you know your story is, Deanna manages to see some good in it. Her comments are always nice, always enthusiastic, always most welcome and encouraged. I love it when she drops by.
Not just a cheerleader, though, Deanna is also a prolific and busy writer who writes wonderful flash fiction on The Other Side of Deanna as well as inspiring non-fiction on The Life of a Working Writer Mommy. On this site she writes inspiring stories about her battles with fibromyalgia, helping people understand what this awful havoc this disease plays on people's lives. She talks about her busy sons, her husband, her cooking, her life – she makes me dizzy just thinking about it! All this, and she still manages to infuse sunshine in the darkest corners of the internet. Feeling glum? Pay Deanna a call – she will make you feel better, I swear.
On top of this, she just invented a new blog award, called The Creative Genius Award where she honoured five fellow #fridayflash writers for their creative writing abilities including
Oh, and me! (Deanna you must have been smoking something to add me to this list but hey, I'll take it!)
Deanna has no rules, per se; she only hopes that it will be passed on and that those who receive it will post the award on their blog.
OK Deanna, you're on!
I am pleased to pass this award on to seven of my favourite creative geniuses:
There are so many other people I'd love to nominate (pretty much everyone on my Blogroll) but I'm sure they will get their due in short order.
