Blog Awards



Hey, all! My crit group buddy, Alex, gave me a blog award. She's awesome! Check her out over at Magpie Writes, and follow along on her journey to land an agent for her YA fantasy novel, BookEnd. 



The goal of the award is to spotlight up and coming bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers. The rules of the award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!

Here is my top five favorite blogs: 

1. SF author Heidi Ruby Miller is one of the sweetest people I know and fellow lover of Neil Gaiman. 
2. Like ninjas? Who doesn't? Head over to the Dojo and meet Ali Cross. Join the writer ninjas and gain an amazing writing support group.
3. Josh Hoyt helps writers with the psychology of their characters over at The Blog That Diagnoses Your Characters.
4. Red Book Pearl at Book Savvy keeps you busy with book reviews and a variety of writing topics. 
5. YA writer Becky Taylor shares her writing experience with her readers.  


My blogger friend Anna Saikin tagged me in a game of blogger tag. The rules: Answer six questions about myself on my blog and tag eight (8) of my blogger friends. 

1. Do you think you're hot?
No. Cute, but definitely not hot.

2. Upload a picture or wallpaper you are using at the moment.
A black and white photo titled "Sea Mist" I'm currently using as my wallpaper. 

3. When was the last time you ate chicken?
Last night. I made chicken nachos for dinner.

4. The song you listened to recently.
"Wake Up" by Rage Against the Machine off the The Matrix soundtrack. 

5. What were you thinking while doing this?
I need to hurry up and figure out where McStews bar is so I can meet up with a few friends.

6. Do you have nicknames? What are they?
Yes. Laurie, Campbell, Lar, Sally, Mike Larry (Bad Boys movie; childhood nickname; don't ask)

7. Tag 8 blogger friends.

I love seeing the answers people come up with for challenges like these! And I haven't seen Bad Boys in ages. I must rewatch!
