If you're a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin
Come in...come in...

CHEERS CAVANAUGH BLOGFEST

The big day is finally here. Today begins the "CHEERS,CAVANAUGH" Blogfest, hosted by MARK KOOPMAN, MORGAN SHAMY,DAVID POWERS KING and STEPHEN TREMP.

To quote Mark Koopman (since I couldn't think of how to say it better) "Alex is an awesome blogger who's helped hundreds of us via book releases, guest posts, guest interviews and always positive comments. While we can't have a live part-ay for the Ninja Captain, we can host a BlogFest." "

It's not to late to get in on the fun, just pop over to Mark's site, sign up on the Linky List, answer these four easy questions, be a follower and have fun!!

SO, without further ado, here's my entry!!

1. In +/- 20 words, what does Alex look like? 

It’s hard to describe him since he’s always zipping around in his black, ninja outfit. Mostly, he looks like smoke.

2.) In +/- 20 words, who could play Alex in a documentary. 

Easy. Bruce Lee.

3.) In +/- 20 words, who does Alex remind you of? 

In the spirit of the season, I'd have to say a  bad ass, ninja-like Santa who gives comments instead of presents.

4.) In 100 +/- words, (excluding the title) write flash-fiction using all these prompts. Cavanaugh. Ninja. IWSG. Cosbolt. Guitar. 

There once was a fearless Ninja known as “The Cavanaugh” who spent all his time flying around the galaxy in his Cosbolt-Spacecraft, ridding the world of nefarious beings known as “Insecurities.” The Ninja fought the Insecurities using his enchanted keyboard. His methods spread and, across the cosmos, others joined him. Soon the Insecurities shriveled and died. The people were full of joy. To celebrate, they declared the Ninja their leader. His kingdom became known as the IWSG. The ninja ruled with a benevolent hand, passing out comments and confidence to his subjects. Guitar ballads were written about this glorious age. 

For Bonus Points: 

In 40+ words leave a comment for Mrs. Cavanaugh, thanking her for sharing. 

To the esteemed wife of our fearless leader--thank you so much for lending us the time and talents of your amazing husband!

    Since comments are like presents, he's pretty much the blogosphere's Santa. Awesome tribute! Thanks for participating! :)
