Liebster Award

EEK, super excited to be catching up on my awards. Unfortunately, there were some for the Sunshine Blogger Award and the Mystery Blogger award with links that didn’t work so I couldn’t answer the questions or nominate. I was nominated by StuHN. The serial piece that is being written for the #AtoZ Blogging challenge is brilliant! Please head on over and read his work. You will not be disappointed. So, on with the show.


1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you and display the award logo.
2. Answer 11 questions that the blogger sets for you.
3. Nominate blogs that you think are deserving of the award.
4. Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Let your nominees know about their nomination!

My Questions to answer:

  1. If you could write in any writers voice besides your own, whose would it be?
    Hmm…any writers voice? I would have to choose that from the point of view of the character. Dialogue is not my strong suit and I’m trying and failing it seems.
  2. What literary genre holds NO interest for you?
    Non-fiction Religious-I’ve been raised in the bible belt. I’ve heard and lived enough for a lifetime. I’m more spiritual in the ways that my grandmother taught me.
  3. What song with a strong narrative still touches you?
    Praying by Kesha. I got emotional the first time I heard it and still get choked up. This speaks to me in more ways than one (thank you for this question).
  4. What fictional character do you wish you were?
    Chesire Cat- That clever feline is able to adapt to any situation for survival.
  5. Savory or Sweet?
    Both? OK, not fair umm savory. I enjoy sweet but put some seasoned pecans in front of me and there won’t be any left for anyone else.
  6. What are “The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of?”
    Dreams are made of determination, gumption, and humility. All of those are needed to reach your goals.
  7. You stumble upon a magic rock. Picking it up, you discover something underneath. What is it?
    The answer to all my family’s secrets. Every answer ever wanted that they took to the grave with them. Their history and past is also mine. 
  8. Have you had an inexplicable experience? What was it?
    I guess some of my stories start with a scene that I see in my mind’s eye. Then my hands can’t stop writing the story behind a scene I have never seen before.
  9. What fiction book would you recommend to me?
    I think it would have to be Cinder. Yes, it’s a young adult fiction but the take on an old fairy-tale I thoroughly enjoyed.
  10. What movie or TV show do you love but hate to admit it?
    Love but hate to admit. It’s no longer running but it would have to be the Torkelson’s. 
  11. What does writing mean to you? (yes, I’m stealing it from Shari. Deal).
    For me, writing means that I’m alive. I’m healing. I’m striving towards a daily goal. It keeps me from giving up.

My questions to be answered:

  1. What was your monster under the bed or in the closet growing up?
  2. What is one thing you wish you could make right?
  3. What fairy tale would you like to see made into a movie?
  4. Would you rather swim in a lake or ocean?
  5. If you could change one thing about mainstream media, what would it be?
  6. Do you have a green thumb?
  7. What would you bring to a birthday party for someone you didn’t know?
  8. What is your favorite time of day?
  9. What is your favorite black and white movie?
  10. How do you define good character?
  11. What movie made you unexpectedly cry?

Real Neat Blog Award


This is a new one that I haven’t heard about. I have been nominated for the Real Neat Blog award. My blog is probably the neatest thing about me at the moment. My house is a constant war zone with kids, dogs, and no referee (or that’s what it feels like). My head is in a constant battle with itself. I’m so busy I don’t know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt. At least here I can control certain things and able to keep some sort of clarity and calm. I was nominated by Bluebell for a While. She is a writer of many words which just seem to come naturally. Head over an take a peek inside. Thank you so much Bluebell for this opportunity and recognition.

I know I’m supposed to nominate other bloggers but here’s the deal. Some have already been nominated (because we seem to blog in the same circles), other’s don’t have time, or comments seem to go into the spam queue. Either way here it is: I nominate you. If you wish to participate then please answer the 7 questions and nominate deserving bloggers. I wish I could read more blogs but my A to Z Challenge is taking a lot of time and research but I’m enjoying my adventure.

The Rules:

  1. Display the award logo
  2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog
  3. Answer the questions of the one who nominated you
  4. Nominate 5-10 bloggers (Froggy Crochet, Thriving Not SurvivingThe Ministry of Shrawley Walks, Tale Spinning)
  5. Ask them 7 questions

My 7 Answers:

  1. What’s your favorite color?
    My favorite color is Black or Blue. Yeah, I have two favorites-always have.
  2. What is your favorite form of writing?
    I love to write creative fiction and short stories.
  3. How do you define love?
    As I have grown an experienced love in different stages of my life I have had many different definitions. Now, I define love as accepting one another for who they are and not what you want them to be. Being supportive and understanding but mostly being able to laugh.
  4. What do you fear most?
    The biggest fear I have is outliving my children.
  5. Who is your favorite blogger?
    I don’t have just one favorite blogger. I love reading so many posts and seek out new topics.
  6. What is your life philosophy?
    Take chances because, in the end, the regrets we have are the chances we didn’t take.
  7. Do you prefer writing on paper or on a screen? 
    I prefer writing on the screen. The paper is something I try to keep with me at all times because you never know when you have an idea that needs jotting down.

My 7 Questions for You:

  1. What is the most difficult part of your artistic practice?
  2. What has been the most difficult thing to date that you have written about?
  3. Do you limit yourself to edits?
  4. Snack or no snack when writing?
  5. What or who encourages you to keep posting to your blog?
  6. What did you want to grow up to be when you were little?
  7. Do you have a writing buddy? (Dog, cat, fish, snake etc…)

I really hope that you had fun reading this and if feel so inclined to participate that would be great.
