The Liebster Award 2018

The Liebster Award 2018

The Liebster Award

Saumya Agrawal nominated me for a Liebster Award.  I have only been following her around for a few weeks but absolutely LOVE the things she writes. I really wish I had found her earlier as it took forever to finish reading every older post she has written. Seems it would be easier to find a person their FIRST day of writing…but I am rather oblivious at times……….yes, I know, I know. Wake up, SUZE! Sheesh!

In any event, you can find Saumya over at randomness inked. Go on, you KNOW you want to check her out! I can wait.

So, we all know I have answered award questions before and I am going to have to (for once) answer these as closely to the absolute truth as I can…no prevaricating for Saumya! Here goes!


  • Create a new post thanking the person who nominated you, link their blog. Include award graphic. (did this…look UP if ya don’t believe me!)_
  • Answer the questions provided.
  • Make a new set of 10 questions for your nominees to answer.  (OH LORDIE..I’ll try!)
  • Nominate 5-10 recently followed bloggers and share your post with them so they see it.

Saumya’s questions:

1. What is your first memory of writing?

I didn’t even learn how to read until the end of the third grade in elementary school. I have dyslexia/dysgraphia and it took that long for a teacher to recognize the problem and help me overcome it. The very first thing I remember writing CORRECTLY was “Spot was a black and white puppy that Sally loved with all her heart”.

2.  Who/What inspired you to write? How?

Miss Reilly, my third grade teacher. She said “with practice, the most difficult things will become easy.  Once they are easy to do, you will have learned to love doing it”.

3. Which is your favourite read? Why?

The one book that I tend to read almost every year is “the Good Earth” by Pearl S Buck.

4. What is that one book you wish you had written?

“All the King’s Men” by Robert Penn Warren.

5. Describe yourself (a) in one word and (b) in one sentence.


6. What is that one event in life that taught you the most?

My death in 2006.  Yes, I DID just say that. Before, I was driven to succeed, and didn’t really care much about whether or not people’s feelings got hurt as I worked my way up to the best in my field. I only cared about making more money, having more clients, being the one that was called as an expert witness…..AFTER, or maybe DURING my heart attack, I realized all the money or respect in the world wasn’t a goal to strive for. Being a better person was..being more compassionate, apologizing when wrong was, caring about others more than I cared about myself was. Learning that there really IS life after death changed the way I thought about my own death…and life. I appreciate the little things now that i failed to before. The smell of coffee in the morning. Sunshine, rain or snow. The cat purring.  the sound of children playing. A soft warm breeze.  All of these are GIFTS to us and we should take the time to enjoy them…and be THANKFUL for them all.

7. What do you notice in a person when you meet them for the first time?

Whether or not they are comfortable in meeting someone new.

8. What is the one thing that you love about yourself?

My nutty sense of humor

9. According to you, what is life?

A GIFT not to be squandered or thrown away.

10. What is writing to you?

Writing is a means to express myself, a way to leave a record of who I am and what I accomplished…for my children more than anyone else.

My Questions and Nominations:

It’s come to the hard part of this challenge…sending out nominations and thinking up questions.

  1. Where do you get your ideas?
  2. What is your writing process like?
  3. Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?
  4. What one thing would you give up to become a better writer?
  5. What is your favorite childhood book?
  6. How does your writing relate to your spiritual practice or other life path?
  7. What inspires you?
  8. describe yourself as if someone is interviewing you.
  9. where do you see yourself in ten years?
  10. What was the worst book you ever read, or stopped reading?

Now, if you have an award free blog, this nomination is not to annoy or frustrate you. it simply means I think your blog is amazing and worthy of praise. You do not have to do this. With that said, I want to recognize the following:





Tony Burgess


Katie Mary


And this last spot is for ANYONE that wants to answer the questions and show an award…for in MY mind, if YOU are writing…YOU are worthy!
