I got nominated for the Liebster award by my friend Annie Twitchell. Go check out her blog at: http://annie-louise-twitchell.blogspot.com.au/
Here are the rules:
– Thank the blog who nominated you and link back to them.
– Nominate up to 11 other bloggers to receive the award. To be eligible, they need to have 200 followers or less.
– Answer 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
– Tell your readers 11 random facts about yourself.- Give your nominees 11 questions to answer on their blog when they post their nomination.
My Eleven Questions from Annie:
#1 – What’s the ‘outdated’ phrase that you use the most?
I really have no idea. I can’t think of any phrases that I particularly favour.
#2 – What was the name of your first character you created?
There was a princess named Grace, but she wasn’t really a character. It was really about three princes who never had names since I didn’t write more than a sentence or two on that story. Other than that I really don’t know.
#3 – About how many books do you read a week?
About one or two. Plus books like A History of Venice that I try to read every week and take forever.
#4 – If you were a dragon rider, what colour would your dragon be?
I am actually a dragon rider, at least in this forum. My dragon is blue and cream.
#5 – You’re in a fight. What’s your weapon of choice?
Staff, it’s less likely to injure people permanently.
#6 – How many times a week do you use sticky notes?
Less that once.
#7 – When was the last time you hand-wrote a letter to someone?
Probably in 2014, maybe longer.
#8 – How many story ideas have you come up with in the two and a half minutes before falling asleep?
Not very many, unless ways to improve my current story count. Then it’s a larger unspecified number.
#9 – Text or phone call?
If an email counts as text, then certainly that. Otherwise it would have to be phone call and very rarely. I do not use a phone for communication.
#10 – Do your characters have conversations with you?
#11 – Stars or hearts?
Eleven Random Facts About Me:
#1 I am a bit of a heath fanatic sometimes. I don’t take it too seriously though and I’m sceptical of most of the ideas out there.
#2 – Almost everyone I know in person calls me by my full name.
#3 – I haven’t read any of the books that live on my shelf this year and I might not.
#4 – I do not own physical copies any of my most favourite books.
#5 – I hate wearing pants.
#6 – I love sewing.
#7 – I once owned a pair of hand-sewn pant and loved them. That was then, though.
#8 – The only tea I like is ginger. However tea and I have had a very limited acquaintance.
#9 – I live in the country and love it, but I’m not a farm girl.
#10 – I bought a pair of hiking shoes. They’re brown with pale pink, but cost half the price of a pair that didn’t quite fit which were cheaper in turn than a pair that did fit.
#11 – I don’t have any sisters. (So why do I keep trying to write about characters who do?)
Eleven Questions for My Nominees:
#2 – Do you like maths?
#3 – What is your favourite thing to do outside?
#4 – What is your dream house?
#5 – Who do you look up to most?

And that’s that. Any blogger reading this may consider them-self nominated too. I’m sorry for missing you.
I hope everyone found that interesting and I may have another post on Friday.
