Sarah F. Brings Me Back to the Blogoshpere

I had not had a decent post idea in a while, and was just wishing someone would award me an excuse to post, when Sarah F. from Inklined gave me The Fantastic Blog Award.

Thank you, very much Sarah! 

 Like 99.9% of awards, this one has rules.

1.  Thank the person who gave you the award. (Done!)
2.  Answer the five questions given to you, and ask the next person five new questions.
3. Award five people.
4. Post the rules. (Also done!)

Sarah's questions are:
1. What is your favorite part of blogging? Well, I'd have to say the other bloggers I meet. 
2. What are some of your favorite blogs?  See my Great Blogs! list on the right. 
3. Are there any blogs you follow that have really huge followings? Go Teen Writers just topped 500 followers!
4. What's your favorite subject to read in? To write in? I'm assuming by subject, Sarah means genre. (If I am mistaken, Sarah, please correct me).  Reading:  I like fantasy, mystery, some paranormal stuff, and historical fiction.  To write: I've written 1.5 mysteries, and I must admit that I love figuring out motives and clues and stuff.  This year for NaNoWriMo, I will attempt my first fantasy, and it will also be a mystery. So, I guess mystery.
5.  If you could interview one author on your blog, who would you pick? Ooh, tough question. I really have no idea.

My questions are:
1.  If you were a dragon, what color would you be?
2.  If you were only allowed to write in one genre for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
3.  What was the last book you read?
4.  Did you like it?
5.  What is one school subject that is being force-fed to your brain you are taking this year?

I nominate:
Allison @ Allison's Bookish Life
Erin @ Laughing at Live Dragons
Sarah @ Comfy Sweaters, Writing and Fish. 
Pheris @ The Word Asylum
Liam, Head Phil @ This Page Intentionally Left Blank

In other blogging news, since I was awarded this award, I've had five post ideas.  Now I have a request: Someone please threaten me with something creative if I don't actually post.  (Disclaimer: any threats posted in the comments may be used in future stories).

Have a great week, all!


  1. How about this: If you don't post a real post on your blog by Wednesday, then you have to eat tomatoes, watermelon and raisins for breakfast for a week.

    1. AHH! NO! My stomach is upset just thinking about it. And since you are my mother, you actually have the means to inflict said torture on me.... Carp.

  2. I like Robin's suggestion, but will add one more thing-- no Doctor Who for a month.

    ...Exactly. In other news, I will accept this award. I'd like to thank the academy...

    1. That would stink. Especially if my library actually got season 6.

      I am glad you accept the award, though I must ask, even at the risk of sounding like an ignorant Nerf herder, "exactly" what, and what is this academy you speak of?

  3. I was anticipating your reaction to the Doctor Who withdrawal, and later was just a joke. The Oscar Awards are always accepted with a speech beginning with "I'd like to thank the academy..." This I know from Artemis Fowl.

    1. Ah, yo veo. Having neither seen the Oscars nor read Artemis Fowl, I would not have gotten that.
