Thanks to Tex...

Texican over at Pappy's Balderdash has listed "Adventures in Fiction" as one of the blogs that makes his day. Check out his blog -- guaranteed to make you smile!
The rules for this award are:
1) Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day.
2) Acknowledge the post of the award giver (Muchas Gracias, Texican!)
3) Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news!

(Just because a blog is listed below does not obligate the blogger to provide his or her own list. This is merely an acknowledgment of good writing and interesting sites.)

Here are my five choices:
1. In the Open Space: God & culture. Carmen Andres. An invitation to view the world through a new lens, to see God's presence in art, cinema, literature, and various unexpected places. Also a good source of movie reviews, with a spiritual spin.
2. A Christian Worldview of Fiction. Rebecca Miller. Christian fantasy writer and main mover behind the monthly Christian Science Fiction & Fantasy Blog Tour. She sure knows how to stir up debate!
3. The Write Fashion. Jadesmith. A friend's eclectic blog about anything from fashion (I'm just this side of clueless) to books to writing to life in general. She sometimes posts samples of her artwork, too.
4. Overheard Lines. Funny or just plain strange snippets of actual conversations. There are many contributors, so there's not a name to list here. Just check it out -- but conversations are recorded without censorship, so beware raw language.
5. Scriptorius Rex. Jeff Draper. Get ready for deadpan, tongue-in-cheek humor, as well as news on work, home, and the writing life.

So, to those whose blogs I've listed, Congratulations! To everyone whose blog I didn't, you are by no means forgotten. If you're over on my blog roll, you have something interesting to say. Everyone, check 'em out!
