In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort. Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.
Day 20 – Sorryless
I met Marc through A Frank Angle’s (yes, Frank, this one is all yours) “If” Challenge last February. It was a sign of things to come. Miles and miles of comments back and forth, first on Frank’s posts, then on Marc’s, then on mine. Can’t lie. Didn’t take long before I was totally smitten. In the relatively short time since, we have become the best of friends. A friendship I cherish deeply.
Now… onto why I’ve added this blog to my Advent Calendar! This guy can write. I mean seriously WRITE. He has a way with the phrase that just flows and meanders and roars and soars. It can punch you in the gut and make you cry. He is passionate about the subjects he tackles and is not afraid to put it and himself out there. He’s funny, snarky, rude, romantic (though he’ll deny this one), smart, witty and ironic, to name a few.
And I am far from alone in singing his praises. His followers all say what I do: that his skills as a writer are exquisite.
Now, if I can just convince him to write and publish a book…
