Hello everyone! Recently I’ve been nominated for the honorable and prestigious, Leibster Award. If you’ve never heard of it, that’s because it’s very exclusive, and given to only the most worthy of bloggers on the spectrum. The origin, and purpose of this award remain a mystery, (to me, at least) but that just adds to the overall effect.
I received this award, along with the questions, from the curious, Catwing. (You can check out her blog, when you finish here.) In order to fulfill the duties of receiving the award, one must answer the eleven questions below, and provide eleven random facts about oneself.
Let’s begin with the questions.
1. What is the first book you remember reading?
Does anyone remember Bob Books? The stories went something like, “Mat sat. Sam sat.” Good stuff. They really got my reading career off the ground.
2. First book you remember writing?
It never turned out to be a full length novel, but many many years ago I wrote a story about a little lost duckling. Sounds tragic, but it had a very happy ending.
3. Do you prefer Winter or Summer?
There are many good reasons for liking one season over another, which makes it hard to choose. For example; Summer is fun and green, yet torturously hot and miserable. Whereas Winter has much better fashion options, but it’s cold, and all plant-life is basically dead. Tough call.
4. Glitter. Is it shimmering innocent sparkles or the parasitic bane of existence that wants your skin?
I don’t mind glitter all that much. But my choices in life tend to lead me away from it.
5. Would you rather have a phoenix or a dragon?
I would love to have a large dragon on hand for certain occasions. I think it would be quite useful.
6. Which one of your characters is most likely to break through the fourth wall and find you?
It would probably be the hacker genius, in my current sci-fi writing project. (No further details shall be released, as of yet.)
7. Would you rather have a bow and arrows or a knife?
I have a soft spot for archery, but knives have many more uses.
8. Do you keep a candy stash or eat candy when you get it?
I buy my candy in bulk so I can eat some right away, and also have enough for later. Be smarter than what you’re working with, kids.
9. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever made?
I would have to say, the legendary salt flavored cake I made for my mom’s birthday, a couple of years ago was pretty unforgettable.
10. How did you get interested in writing?
When I was younger, reading and writing were always a part of my schooling, then one day I was introduced to Kingdom Pen, and began to take writing more seriously. And the rest, you could say, is history. (Thanks, mom!)
11. Do you like writing/drawing/working with music?
There isn’t much I do without music. So that would be a yes.
11 Random Facts:
I’m not exactly a fan of cats… but I happen to have three cats. (Technically it’s five, but that’s kind of a long story.)
My favorite pen is the, .38 Pilot Juice.
I drink approximately two cups of tea everyday.
I’m terrible at caring for my houseplants. (Yet I work in a greenhouse.)
My favorite band at the moment is, Day6.
I’m the proud owner of a fossilized sand dollar. (Allegedly discovered in the desert of Madagascar.) It’s very handy as a paperweight.

Phew… that was a lot of facts. I hope they were sufficiently random, and at least a little interesting.
Lately a bad case of writer’s block has set in, but this tag came to me just on time! Thanks again, Catwing! And thanks to you, for taking time out of your day to read this post, I really appreciate it.
