Turns out, I’ve already accepted this award, almost exactly one year ago.
But I’m not one to let a tiny hiccup like that stop me.
Rules Of The Liebster Award (These vary, depending on who I’m nominated by. So in the name of grand monarchy, I shall pick and choose which rules I prefer—for the good of the kingdom.)
- Nominate 3-10 bloggers with less than 2,000 followers whom you want to encourage.
- Answer the questions given to you.
- Create 10 questions for your nominees.
Because I was nominated by two bloggers, I’ll alternate between their questions. (Don’t worry. There’s only 9.)
#1. What is the most rewarding aspect of blogging? – Beckie
Blogging is most rewarding from an instant-gratification standpoint. There is no waiting. I write it. I post it. I see if people love it, hate it, come at me with pitchforks, ignore it, or leave a comment with phrases like funniest girl in the entire world or all hail the writing Goddess.
I find out how they feel, almost immediately. Blogging connects my writing with my readers. That’s rewarding.
#2. What would your superpower be? – Dani
Either flying or being invisible. Mostly, I want to be invisible so I can eavesdrop on people. But that’s a given.
#3. Name a fun, random fact about yourself. – Beckie
Since I’m studying medical transcription, I have a half-man, half-exposed-organs-and-muscles figurine on my desk.
Sometimes, I shake my head at him and say, “you aren’t half the man you used to be, Charles.”
This cracks me up.
#4. What’s one thing that really gets your blood boiling? – Dani
When my age becomes an issue. I’m twenty, 5’2, and baby-faced.
I have leadership skills and drive and maturity, but a lot of people struggle or refuse to see me as a competent adult human. They see me as a girl, or daughter, or teen, or worse, they compare me to their kid or grandkid, thinking that because we share the same age, we must be at the same place in life.
I wouldn’t say my blood boils at this, but I do see it as one of life’s injustices.
I guess you could say my blood boils at those 18-25 year olds who are lazy or stupid and ruin things for the rest of us. And those “adultier” adults who don’t expect any better from my generation.
#5. What’s your greatest motivation for writing? – Beckie
I want to be a published YA author. I’m currently working on my first novel. I want readers to fangirl over my characters the way I fangirl over Tris and Four.
I also love sharing experiences and sharing laughter. It’s addicting, and it’s motivating.
#6. During a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? – Dani
First of all, Dani, I absolutely love this question. I guess this would’ve been a great random fact about me, but I am always preparing for the zombie apocalypse.
I am that girl:
“Dude, if it were a zombie apocalypse, I’d eat you first.”
“Hey, if this was a zombie apocalypse, I would climb up to that abandoned house on a hill and set up fort, perfect vantage point.”
“CHECK THE BACK SEAT. I told you. ALWAYS check the back seat!”
Anyways. I’m a gun person. However, I am aware that bullets only last so long. But, if this were a movie, and I had a never-ending supply of bullets, I would go for a gun, probably a rifle, and if I could, a handgun against my ankle as well.
#7. Favorite movie. – Beckie
I have a list of movies I can see (and have seen) over and over and over and over—and over again:
- The Devil Wears Prada (fashion and writing, two of my favorite things)
- His Girl Friday (makes me laugh every time)
- Kiki’s Delivery Service (started my anime obsession)
- All About Eve (oh, the irony)
- Little Women w/Elizabeth Taylor (Oh Laurie…)
- You’ve Got Mail
#8. Favorite dinner to eat. – Beckie
Olive Garden. Always Olive Garden. I love their soups, their salad, I love pasta, I love the Frank Sinatra music in the background.
I would like to eat Olive Garden, the restaurant, as a whole. Breadsticks on the side. Please and thank you.
#9. Tell me one interesting fact about yourself? – Dani
When I was eight, I was hit in the face with a softball. The girl stood maybe five feet away and walloped the ball with a bat. I remember, in slow motion, the softball growing in size, then I remember waking up, crying in the dugout against my mother’s lap.
It’s believed that the girl hit me so hard I got a hairline fracture on my cheek bone. So I have to be careful to protect my face—and to stay away from teenagers with bats who pay no concern to the “tap it lightly” rule.
Wow! So many stories.
I hereby blindly nominate (because I don’t know how to tell how many followers you have):
