A Big Thank You to Robynn  Gabel , over at dupler. org  for surprising me, by nominating me for the Liebster Blog Award. I was stunned to find this  amazing honor when I logged in the other day.

  1. Thanks for the nomination. Congratulations.
    Stay Sweet. And gives you two thumbs up and a cup of coffee or hot tea with Indian scone 😀

  2. What is your favorite Quote?
    The best time to laugh is any time you can.
    B. Lawless

    Who is your favorite character in a novel?
    It’s a tie between Long John Silver from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island and Belgarath the sorcerer from David (and Leigh) Eddings’ Belgariad and Malorian books (I highly recommend the stand-alone novel ‘Belgarath the sorcerer’ though it makes more sense if you’ve read all the others). Scoundrels, both!

    In your opinion, what was the best book adapted to a movie?
    Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams is the best book that has been adapted in to a movie but if you meant which movie is the best adaption of a book, then there are none. I love movies (LOVE them) but it pisses me off when my favourite books get buggered by Hollywood.

    What grammar error makes you the craziest?
    I live in the city of Worcester (West Midlands, England), and there is a local strain of dialect that really gets me going bonkers: “How am you?” ARRGGHHHHH!

    Nothing to do on a rainy day, movie or book?
    As much as I do like the movies, I’d prefer a book, though I’d rather write than do either of those.

    Where is your favorite place to write?
    The library, the quiet, the magic of those beautiful book laden shelves…

    Writer’s block is it myth or fact?
    Myth, just procrastination. There is always SOMETHING to write and there are so many sources of inspiration these days, just type writing prompt in to your thingy on your computer and tons of stuff comes up (I have four posts of writing prompts on my blog, extensive ones too!).

    Desert, cookies or cake?
    Cake. No, wait, cookies. No, cake. Cookies! Cake! Its too hard! Can I have a bite of each?

    Desktop, laptop, or tablet?
    Huh?! Desk top, that’s where the computer lives, right? Lap top, where Santa sits the good boys and girls when they visit? Tablet is something the doctor prescribes. Lap top I guess then, as I hate going to the doctor, I don’t like computers but I do like going to see Santa (he’s a very nice man).

    Do you play an instrument?
    I used to play a little guitar, I like to sing and I can hold a beat on a drum set but none of them very well, my creativity is definitely exclusive to my writing.

    Are you a writer?
    Heck, yes!

    I enjoyed that, thanks again, Glynis, you sweet lady 🙂 *hugs* from baldy 🙂

    1. Looks like you have been getting awards all day. Congrats and I’m going to give mine to my new friend at shooting Stars and Pixie Dust.
