Thinking Blogger Award - Yeah, Me!!

Blog buddy Susan Helene Gottfried honored me with the Thinking Blogger Award - aw shucks. Thanks SHG! - for a recent post I did on the naming of fictional characters.

Here a brief summary of what went down:
I questioned the process of creating fitting names for our fictional characters and asked Susan, specifically, because her characters are musicians, if a rockstar could have an un-cool name like Walter and still be credible (with no offense to any of you Walters out there!)
Susan proved that a rocker can indeed be called Walter, and if you visit her latest post over at West of Mars , you'll see exactly how she's accomplished this amazing feat.
Brilliant, really. We look forward to your novel, Ms Gottfried!

It's now my job to tag 5 blogs that make ME think. This is difficult since so many of my fave blogs make me think. I'd better take a few days to mull this over.
Stay tuned...

There's more from Walter, yet. I'm going to do it this evening, I think. Surprise you when you don't expect it.

We are ALL waiting for the novel. Hello, publishing world? Look around... readers, waiting to spend money... Hello? Anyone home?
