An Award? Liebster!

Liebster awardI’m supremely stunned and extremely grateful to Matthew Peters, who nominated me and my little blog here for a Liebster Award. (The Liebster Award is given from one blogger to another just because they enjoy the content and personality of that particular blogger and they want to spotlight the blog for more readers to discover.) I haven’t thought much of my blog in recent weeks (because I’ve been slacking), but the knowledge that people are reading and enjoying is so wonderful and a huge motivator.  

So, the rules accompanying this honor state that:

  • I link back to the blogger who nominated me. That’d be Matthew Peters, whose own blog is pretty spectacular.
  • Answer some questions from the nominating blogger: #1. Coke or Pepsi? Neither. Water! #2. What are you doing today in another universe, if parallel universes actually exist? Running and winning a cupcake marathon. One cupcake every five miles and three at the finish line. #3. Choose a character in your latest story and tell us how he/she is similar or not similar to you. The protagonist of my WIP is a genius homicide detective who dislikes guns, loves animals and hates public speaking. That’s fairly accurate for me, aside from the genius detective part. #4. If for some reason you couldn’t read or write, how would you spend the time you used to spend reading and writing? I’d probably take up photography or spend way more time outdoors.
  • Choose more bloggers to nominate. My list is below. Should they wish to play along, they’ll answer the above questions, plus the following (mine): #5. Tell us one of the biggest revelations your own writing has given you. My imagination may be way darker and dirtier than I’d anticipated.

Without further ado, some of my favorite bloggers. Hats off and Liebster Awards to:

Drew Chial

    Thank you so much, Cornelia! Since I’ve recently named a list of my favorite bloggers, I’ll simply reply to your question #5: One of the biggest revelations my own writing has given me is that I should have started earlier so I could have more years to become a better writer. I would have done the whole education thing differently and studied literature and creative writing. Thanks again for the award :-)

      Whoa, that’s quite a revelation! I would say that there are benefits to starting later: having read more books, having a better handle on who you are as an individual, having more stories to tell and a deeper understanding of them. But I hear ya…it sometimes feels like there’s so much catching up to do.
