#WritingCommunity Blog Award

Hello everyone,

Today we have a slightly different post than usual, because I am starting a blog award! *insert confetti here*

If you don’t know how blog awards work, the rules are simple.

  1. Display the award logo on your site
  2. Link back to the person who tagged you
  3. Answer 5 questions
  4. Tag 3 blogs (must be blogs related to writing, not book review blogs) and ask them 5 new questions
  5. Follow as many blogs with this award as you can!

So without further ado, I’d like to tag these wonderful people and their blogs:

Jessica Crespino (, Lorraine Ambers (, and Julia Witmer (

Of course, anyone is welcome to hop on the bandwagon and join in– I don’t have to tag you!

My questions:

  • What was the first story you remember writing?
  • What’s your favorite genre to write? Why?
  • Favorite fictional character?
  • Where do you find the most inspiration?
  • As a writer, how would you like to grow in 2021?

Since I don’t have someone else’s questions to answer, here are the (short) answers to my own questions.

The first story I remember writing was called Three Girls and a Tree. I used magazine cutouts to illustrate it.

Favorite genre right now is dystopian.

Favorite fictional character is currently Merlin from BBC Merlin.

I find most of my inspiration from Pinterest these days.

I’d like to grow in 2021 by finishing another novel, and hopefully getting some stuff entered in contests and publications.

Let’s spread the love this holiday season and help grow each other’s blogs!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today’s post is going to be a little bit shorter, since I just wanted to take a moment and look back at the positive things in 2020. I know, 2020 wasn’t very positive. But what fun is it to read another negative article where we complain about the state of our world? Fortunately, I was […]

Christmas stories! We know them, we love them, and we poke fun at them. At least, I poke fun at them. Now, I’d like to make it clear that I love Christmas. At this point, I can almost recite my favorite Christmas movies from memory. And even though I might roll my eyes at the […]
