A Creative Writing Exercise

Thanks to Lisa from Sweet Laundry Loves for the writing exercise tag. I think in this high-tech day and age, we forget how nice it is to receive something personally written. And with the right pen, how satisfying it is to send a string of ink soaring across a piece of smooth paper with the power of your thoughts.

So I'd like to keep this little exercise going by passing this tag on to the lovely Laura from Anthro Closet Chaos!

Just hand write the following and share:
  • Name
  • Blog Name
  • URL
  • Write "A quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
  • Favourite Quote
  • Favourite Song
  • Favourite Band/Singer
  • Anything you like
  • Tag someone

  1. Oh my gosh, Lisa!! How funny about Pacey! I thought our Zoe was the only dog who does that (and it's veeeery smelly)! I'm glad to know that we're not the only ones who have a pup with gas issues - we even had to stop feeding her raw hides because they gave her awful gas!! I laughed so hard when I read this!!!

  2. Wow thanks so much for this list of give-a-ways! What a great idea & so helpful to get more into the blogging community =)

    love your blog! Feel free to check out mine!


  3. Lisa, What a fun Blog Tag. Wait till you see how attrocious my hand writing is. It's the carpet tunnel. Love to Pacey the Farter! Love to you!

  4. You have such beautiful handwriting! I love The Cranberries too :)

  5. you have great handwriting! hmm now i want to listen to the cranberries... :)

  6. visited your nice blog


    a simple blogger in blogworld


  7. I love your handwriting, it's so neat & pretty!

  8. Your handwriting is so artsy! Pacey and LG have alot in common because he farts audibly alot too. TMI? Maybe. Don't tell him I told you that. I was just trying to make Pacey feel better about her tooting problem :)

  9. I don't even know what my handwriting looks like anymore... sad, because I take great pride in good penmanship. Love the quote :)

  10. I don't generally hike with heels! I hope you don't think I'm ridiculous.

    Your handwriting is very nice. I'm jealous.

  11. Mandy - same here, unfortunately! We just put Pacey on some less protein-rich food, so that may help the situation ... we'll smell ...

    Thanks, emma / Elaine!

    Laura - no one's handwriting can be as atrocious as my BF's! I can't hardly ever read what he writes at all!

    eek / tasty moog - I guess I am not a huge music buff because I had a hard time picking a fave band/singer. The Cranberries did move me though, way back in the day!

    Thanks, vijay / Audrey!

    Sweet Laundry - oh you crack me up! How what can you say to help me with Pacey's tooting problem, because that stuff stinks, haha!

    Cat - I know what you mean. We do too much on our computers and Blackberries nowadays!

    aki - heck no - it's one of the things we do for fashion and blogging! I'm just so klutzy that I have to relegate myself completely to flat surfaces when I'm not in flats!
