Liebster Award!


A huge shout to Aether House for my nomination for the Liebster Award! Asked some interesting questions that were fun to answer. If you haven’t checked out her blog, get on it. It’s a good read. Herein lies the answers to Aether House’s questions:

1. Do you have, or have you had, a medical condition that altered your way of life?
How did you know? In April of this year I had an incident at my workplace that left me with PTSD. Fun times. After several months of doctor visits I have completely changed my outlook on life. I focus on the positive, let go of the negative and live in the now. Although, men in hoodies and my old workplace are not nice things to encounter these days.

2. How would you describe your dream home?
I would absolutely love a cottage-style house in a rainforest type environment. So much serenity. That, or Downton Abbey. Because Downton Abbey is amazing.

3. What is your favorite hobby? Why?
The obvious is writing, so I’ll put down my second favourite. Wait, that’s reading. Okay, third favourite is archery. Shooting bulls eyes is oddly satisfying…

4. What piece of clothing can you not live without?
My dressing gown, because I’m a grandma.

5. How do you feel about marriage and having kids?
It’ll happen one day, I’m sure, but for now my partner and I are fairly happy just winging it. Also, I don’t want more than two kids. Overpopulation is a crisis you know!

6. What book-to-movie adaptation are you’re dying for Hollywood to make? I’m talking about books that haven’t yet been made into movies, of course (so no Mockingjay!).
I would really like to see Sabriel by Garth Nix made into a movie. It’s not my favourite book, but the way it’s written makes it seem perfect for a movie adaptation. Probably not going to happen though.

7. Do you live in the moment or do you plan for the future?
Definitely living in the moment at my present stage. I used to think about my future too much, and it stressed me out. As my sister says, ‘Your problem is you think too much.’

8. Favorite class in college? (or high school, if you didn’t go/haven’t yet gone to college)?
I would have to say Faunal Studies. We got to go on a camp and do research on the various animals, plants and soils there. Sound boring? We got to play with these little guys:


Most amazing experience in my studying life. Marine Biology was also fun. Got to swim with dolphins and seals. Actually most of my classes were great.

9. Best and worst part of attending weddings?
Best part is going to beautiful locations, seeing beautiful dresses and watching how happy the bride and groom are. Worst part? I always get the steak. I don’t eat red meat.

10. Tell me about an awkward or embarrassing moment you’ve had.
Ha! Oh the tales I could tell. Let’s just go with one of the worst. I had started seeing a guy and somehow got introduced the parents. We were just chatting and then I called the guy by the wrong name. Needless to say I left fairly quickly after that. The worst part was I couldn’t remember his name after I said the wrong one. Super awkward!

  1. Sorry about that workplace incident 😦

    Love that you’re an archer! My boyfriend is into archery. I’ve shot with him before and it is addictive.

    I also love Garth Nix and am DYING for an adaptation of Seventh Tower. Sure, it’s not Nix’s favorite work (he was kind of given it by Lucasbooks and it’s a middle grade novel). But it’s so epic and would make an amazing miniseries. The worldbuilding, and Milla’s epicness….gah. If Hollywood won’t make it into a miniseries, I’ll kickstarter it!

    Thanks for doing this! I enjoyed reading it.

    • Ah, it happened and there’s nothing I can do about it…but in terms of experience it has certainly opened me up to the emotions one feels when they are fearing for their life. Very good for writing!

      Yeah, I’m a big fan but it’s hard to find the time to go out. When I do, it’s great. Very peaceful and it’s fun competing against my boyfriend. He’s got a compound bow and I’m a recurve girl so he’s got a bit of an unfair advantage!

      I’ve never read Seventh Tower, but I’ve always found Garth Nix’s writing to just jump off the page. I can just picture how they could adapt it onto screen. Haha, when in doubt, kickstart!

      Cheers, I enjoyed answering the questions. Thanks for the nom 🙂


  2. Thanks for the nomination. I’ll sit down and look at the questions and post my results hopefully later tonight or tomorrow. Today has been a crazy day do far. By the way, how do you end up st a days house without knowing their name lol hilarious!


    • I look forward to reading it. Well I did know his name before hand, but I have this awful habit where before I know someone’s name, I guess what it would be based on what they look like. So I called him by my imagined name then was too embarrassed and had a mental blank. It’s his fault anyway, it was way too early to meet the parents!

      • You look like a William, so that’s why 🙂 Haha, no I never got the chance to come up with a stupid imaginary name for you, I already knew it. Crossbows are awesome, we’re not allowed them in Oz though. Unless you’ve got a firearms licence, I think… Could be wrong. I would win in a shooting race though 🙂 I might just miss a lot more! Harder to aim a recurve. Do crossbows have sights? They must. Wow I’m rambling today.
