Liebster Award!

During the last week of June, I was nominated twice for the Liebster Award, for which I am super shocked and super honored. Thanks to both Ciera at the Write Things and The Teenage Nerd at Nerdy Writing for your nominations. It means the world that you both read and enjoy Summer Snowflakes and want more people to know about my blog.

So then, let’s head right into this.

The Rules (dun, dun dun!): actually, they’re not that daunting. Simply put, bloggers choose other bloggers who have under two hundred followers to be nominated for the Liebster Awards. The nominees thank and link back to their nominators, write eleven things about themselves, answer eleven questions from the nominators, post the whole mess on their blogs, and nominate more people (up to nine) by commenting on their blogs, messaging them, whatever it takes to let them know you love them.

If that was confusing (because it probably was), here’s a pic with a much simpler rundown of the Rules:

Without further ado then, here are Eleven Facts About Me:

#1 I’m not an actual spy and I wouldn’t want to be. But pretending is fun.

#2 I named my first laptop Chase Taylor Michaels  but not till after he caught a virus and died. Not to worry, though, he was resurrected a few months later.

#3 I’ve completed seven novel manuscripts, few of which are any good right now. But the one that is all right, I’m trying to get published.

#4 I love chocolate anything. Unless you put fruit in it (raspberries or oranges, in particular). Seriously, it’s just wrong. It’s chocolate, for Pete’s sake. What would possess you to try and make it healthy?

#5 Chocolate-covered strawberries are the only exception to the above rule. Possibly chocolate-covered apples, too. I don’t know, that last one sounds kinda good.

#6 I love ice cream so much I’d eat it if it was below zero outside. In fact, I’m pretty sure I have eaten it in at least below freezing weather.

#7 Star Wars is my favorite fandom in the whole wide world, though Tiger’s Curse, Heroes of Olympus, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural, and just about anything from Marvel all come in at very close seconds.

#8 I used to think the saying “the whole wide world” was “the whole white world.” As in snow covering the whole world. You can imagine my confusion.

#9 I’m very, very bad at geography. So don’t ask me where anywhere is because I can’t tell you.

#10 I have imaginary friends whom I talk to on a daily basis. They’re called characters.

#11 Me and my real-life friends want to start a support group for all the characters we believe just need a hug, a blanket, and a plate of warm cookies.1

1Not oatmeal raisin. That will only create more trust issues.

Do you feel like you know me now? Yes? Pity. Hopefully, you’re not too scared to read the next segment, Questions from the Teenage Nerd: 

When did you first start writing? 
I wrote my very first story when I was about 6 years old, but I didn’t start writing seriously till I was 14.

Why did you start your blog? 
Marketing purposes, to be honest. But I’ve found that I really enjoy blogging, and now I do it because I like to write about what I think and I like having other people know what I think.

How often do you write? 
Daily. Two to three hours on a good day.

What’s your favourite colour? 
Pink. Yes, I’m a very girly girl.

Do you prefer British or American spellings? 
I’ve honestly never thought about it. I’ll say British because Independence Day was two days ago and being contrary brings me great joy.

What’s your favourite animal? 
Oooh, that’s a hard one. Can I have two? I’m going to assume you said yes, so dogs and rabbits.

What’s your favourite word? 
Irrelevant  I love the way it rolls off your tongue, and it sounds smart, too.

What’s your favourite book?
... Is this a serious question? How am I supposed to...? *fanning myself* OK... deep breaths... I’m going to say Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck.

Who’s your favourite author? 
Again with the hard questions. Colleen Houck or Jude Watson.

When did you first decide to write a novel? 
When I was 14. We’d just moved, I had no friends, and my mom somehow heard about NaNoWriMo and suggested I do it. I thought “What the heck?” and got to writing. Two weeks later, I’d completed my first novel  which was only slightly longer than a short story, but whatever.

Are you tired of answering all of these questions? 
Haha, no. I like questions. Provided I can plead the fifth if I so choose.

And it’d be a pity if I was tired of answering questions because I’ve still got another set. This one from Ciera:
1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Oh that’s hard! Um... Scotland, I think. I love the accents and it seems like a beautiful place.

2. Would you rather have the starring role in a movie only ten people see, or be an extra in a huge blockbuster hit?
Extra in a huge blockbuster hit. Because then I could at least meet some big-time actors while filming.

3. If you could relive any day from the past year, what would it be and why?
It would probably be the last full day of Mission Camp, June 19th, 2014. Me and my friends had a blast, and I’d love to see those kids again.

4. What famous movie or book character do you identify with?
Hermione Granger  I’m a nerdy girl who, like her, is occasionally a bit annoying with my “smartical particles” (as London from the Suite Life would say).

5. How would you describe your personality as a fashion accessory?
I thought long and hard about this and have concluded that I am a hand fan. When a hand fan opens, there are all sorts of loud, beautiful colors  which is the way I am around friends: loud, fun (I hope), and outgoing. But sometimes, the fan (or me) is closed, like when I’m feeling shy or I’ve decided I’ve had quite enough of people and shut myself off from the world

6. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Force fields, like Violet in The Incredibles. You could fight anything off with those.

7. If you had only one day left to live, what would you do?
Take a road trip to see all the people I love. And eat lots of chocolate and ice cream.

8. What's a secret talent you have that most people don't know about?
The only one I can think of is rapping. By that I mean, I can memorize lyrics and repeat them, not that I can actually freestyle.

9. Are you a morning or night person?
That’s actually a complicated question. I used to be a morning person, and sometimes, if I get enough sleep, I still am. But I often get my second wind at night. So you could say I have the capacity to be both, but I lean more towards being a night person.

10. Why did you start blogging?
Like I said above, originally marketing purposes. But now I do it because it’s fun.

What’s something you hope to accomplish within the next year?
I’d love to be published, but that’s not something I necessarily control. So an actual achievable goal? I want to finish the major editing of two manuscripts, The Supernatural Projects and Unattainable, and start on editing for a third, Aidan’s Story (because I don’t have a better title for that).

Aaaand... we are finished with me! So my nominees are:

Congratz! And here are your questions:

#1 If you could go back in time to any time, what time would it be?

#2 When did you start writing?

#3 Why did you start blogging?

#4 Other hobbies besides writing?

#5 What’s your favorite character you’ve ever written?

#6 What’s your favorite character you’ve ever read?

#7 Favorite food?

#8 Favorite song?

#9 Favorite outfit?

#10 Favorite month of the year?

And the grand finale, the question that will determine everything for the rest of your life, #11: If you were a superhero, would you wear your underwear on the outside?

Well, that was fun! Hope you enjoyed and see you next time!
