Two Awards

Beautiful Blogger

First things first: The wonderful Topaz nominated me for two awards! Thanks, Topaz! The first one is the Beautiful Blogger award. Here are the rules:

1.Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo
2. Thank the person who nominated you and create a link back.
3. Nominate seven other bloggers and say a little something about them.

The Howler

Here are the rules for The Howler Award:

1. Display the award on your blog. This can be in your sidebar or on a special award page
2. Thank the person who gave you the award and link to their blog
3. Give 3 examples of things you would like to see changed in the world
4. Nominate (in your own time) at least 5 bloggers that deserve the award
5. Donate the equivalent of $10 to a charity of your choice (optional)

What I would like to change in the world…all of these are easier said than done, but…

1. Fix the economy — seriously, it’s ridiculous
2. Stop war — this is even more ridiculous
3. Stop bullying — I hear way too many negative stories on this subject

My Nominees for both The Beautiful Blogger & The Howler Awards…

1. Random Acts of Writing — A regularly updated blog with many tidbits of writing. She has a few works in progress and is hoping to see them on the bookshelves soon.
2. Readful Things Blog — A wonderful writer, blogger, photographer, book reviewer, etc. She does everything that screams “art” and is fantastic at it.
3. Aspiringwriter22 — I have too many good things to say about Herminia. She is a fantastic blogger, a wonderful writer, and a hard-worker.
4. Permashift — I know I nominated this blog for an award not too long ago and it’s easy to understand why. Her book just came out less than a month ago, so please go check it out!
5. Uniquely Russell — A wonderful poet and writer. He is taking place in NaPoWriMo this year, so please go check it out if you want to read great poems!
6. Luna’s Little Library — Literally the best place for book reviews. Enough said.
7. Lysa Taylor — A wonderful writer. Check out her book trailer on her website (it’s really well done)!

There are my nominees…I could have written more about them, but I think it would be much easier for you to see for yourselves, so you should go check out their blogs. 😉

Thanks again Topaz!

Rules (modified)

1. Each nominee should link back to the person who nominated them.

2. Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.

3. Nominate 5-11 other bloggers for this award who have less than 400 followers.

4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

Questions

1. How important is the title of a book?
I say pretty important…aside from the cover, it’s what draws the reader to your book in the first place. If the title sounds interesting, then they’ll flip it over to read the synopsis.

2. Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Of course I can!

3. Pets! Cats. Dogs. Ferrets. Chinchillas. Have any household furbabies?
I have a dog, a cat, a turtle, and a fish.

4. Any favorites among the classics? Shakespeare? The Brontë sisters? Etc.?
Honestly, no. Not really. I like the modern stuff.

5. How do you feel about space travel?
Too scary for me!

6. Do you watch the movie then read the book – or read the book then watch the movie?
Lately, I’ve been reading the books first. For Harry Potter and Twilight I watched the movies first. Let’s just say I’ll be reading the Harry Potter series soon and not Twilight.

7. F***! Darn! Should characters curse?
No. I don’t think it’s classy at all. A few swears here and there are alright depending on the character’s personality, but if every other word is the F-bomb, then no thank you.

8. Your ideal writing space – lots of noise and clutter or serene and isolated?
Serene and isolated. I can listen to instrumental music and that’s it. Otherwise I can’t think.

9. Pandas and penguins. Love ‘em or leave ‘em?
Love them, of course.

10. What’s the one genre you can’t stand – or simply don’t care for?
I can read horror, but it’s not my favorite. A good thriller or suspense would be ideal, but I’m not looking to give myself nightmares.

My Nominees

These are the blogs I nominate for the Liebster Award! They work very hard and deserve the attention. 🙂

1. Topaz Winters

2. Aspiring Writer

3. When I Became an Author

Here are the questions for you to answer (my questions are dumb, sorry):

2. Are you currently working on a novel? If so, what’s it about?
3. Tool of choice (laptop, notebook, etc.)?
4. How long have you been writing for?
5. What made you start writing?
6. What’s your favorite movie?
7. What’s your favorite season?
8. How often are you on the internet (blogging, researching, school, etc.)?
9. What’s your favorite music?

Have fun! 🙂
